Magnificent Butterfly

Hi folks! Hope you had a lovely weekend! I have a easy peasy card to share today. It uses the magnificent Large Highwing Butterfly. I have let this one rest for a while, but I thought it was about to let it fly again.

I kept a very clean color scheme – white, blue and black. Love these kind of color schemes, they often end up really elegant and clean and classy. Well, I don’t know about this one, but I do like it! LOL!

Heartfelt thanks I distressed the edges of the patterned paper with some sandpaper so that the white core would shine through and then I stitched it on a white card base. I use my favorite size, 4x6. What sizes do you usually make???? Have a favorite???  The butterfly is stamped with black dye ink on white smooth cardstock, colored with a copic and cut out. I pimped the flower ribbon with some rhinestones and added a sticker sentiment to finish it off. Done. Easy peasy!

Looking forward to see what our DT applicants will do next??? I know I am!!!

Take care!
