Who Doesn't Love Butterflies!!!




Good Morning everyone!!! I wanted to share some exciting news with you!!! The Creative Belli Challenge has a blog...it will be up and running tomorrow!!! All the cards by the DT members will be posted along with the challenge deets. Be sure to come back tomorrow to check out the Creative Belli Challenge and find the link to the new blog!!! Feel free to add this blinky to your blog!!







The Color Challenge colors on Splitcoast today are Kiwi Kiss, Pink Passion (yikes!) and Chocolate Chip. I found a piece of Basic Grey's Sultry paper that matched the challenge colors. The Clear Dollar Stamps Beautiful Butterflies images and sentiment were stamped with Chocolate Chip Craft onto white, Kiwi Kiss, and Pink Passion and embossed with clear ep. The sentiment layers were cutout out with Nestabilities, the butterflies were cutout and attached with dimensionals, and ribbons and a clip finish it off.





I used 2 different kinds of clear embossing powder on the butterflies. I used Stampin Up! clear ep on the big Kiwi butterfly and the small pink one on the right. The big pink butterfly on the left was embossed with Judi Kins clear ep.....note the sparkle!! Who would of thought that clear ep could have many different looks!!!

Thanks for visiting me today and I hope you have a great Tuedsay!!
