Bloomin’ Marvelous

DSC00582WOW…it’s already the LAST DAY of February!  Where did it go?  The great thing about the end of February…we are that much closer to SPRING!!!  This week the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge is a fun sketch!

Well…you KNOW I love butterflies and you KNOW I love these colors so I put the two together!  The base of the card is Pool Party.  I took a piece of Whisper White, ran it through the Clouds Embossing Folder and layered it onto a piece of Basic Grey.  I made a ‘bow’ (click tutorial above to access my bow tutorial) using Daffodil Delight 3/8″ Taffeta Ribbon and an Island Indigo Designer Printed Brad, added an extra strip of ribbon than added to the panel, then to the card front using dimensionals.  I made three butterflies (So Saffron, Pool Party, Island Indigo) the larger butterfly is Elegant Butterfly Punch and the smaller one is stamped using the Bloomin’ Marvelous Butterfly, punched with the Bitty Butterfly Punch, layered then added the ‘body/antenna’ using a piece of Whisper White Baker’s Twine.  I punched out 3 Postage stamps in Whisper White, added the Butterflies using glue dots then added to the card front.  I stamped the greeting using Island Indigo and Basic Grey, punched with the Postage Stamp Punch and added to the card front using dimensionals.

So check out what the design team did with the sketch by heading over to Create with Connie and Mary!
