Gentle as a Butterfly


Good morning everyone....can you believe it's Saturday already?? This week has gone sooo fast!!! I'm going to do a little stamping this morning and a little stamping this afternoon....maybe the same thing tonight...LOL!!!! We are going to take our DD Holly and her hubby John out to our favorite German restaurant  this evening for John's birthday....both the boys were stationed in Germany during their military career and learned to love the food. Holly and I are learning to love it....I can't do the red spicy cabbage or the hot potato salad!! It just seems too weird to eat potato salad hot!!!! Anyway....

I made this card last night for the Inspiration Challenge on Splitcoast.  Anne picked the Wind and Weather store for our viewing pleasure and I found this gorgeous butterfly for my inspiration. I created around the theme and colors. The sentiment is from Rubbernecker's Butterflies are Free set, the butterfly was punched with a Martha Stewart punch, the sentiment panel, leaves, and scallop were die-cut with MFT's Die-namics, and the rose was made with a Spellbinders Nestabilities.


This is also for The Poodle Parlour's Challenge to use winged things, Cute Card Thursday Challenge to bling it up, and the Crafty Creations Challenge to use gems and twine. 

Thanks for stopping by...have a great Saturday!!!!!

Joan you are so versatile. You create elegant cards, stylish, cute, whimsical, bold your a player. I adore the school days card. reminds me of mine and paper dolls, and McCall sewing patterns. The lines above and below "schooldays" is brilliant. You earn a gold star! You measure up! Beautiful coloring.
