Kind Butterfly

I'm running out of names for butterfly cards.  I mean, I try to give each blog post a name that has something to do with the card (or scrapbook layout, or whatever) that I'm sharing, but it's getting tougher to come up with unique names for butterfly cards.  'Cause I love the new Watercolor Wings butterfly stamps.


Even though I can't get the butterfly body on there straight even *with* a Stamp-a-ma-jig.  I'm special like that.  Anyway, since Watercolor Wings is brand new and it is a current favorite, that qualifies this card for the challenge over at SUO Challenges to use favorite new stamps.

I also used the brand new posted today sketch from Freshly Made Sketches:


I looked at several color challenges, but none of them were speaking to me today so I ended up using a color combo I had sitting out on my stamp table for a baby book layout.  The butterfly is stamped with Crushed Curry (stamped off twice) and Calypso Coral, with a Marina Mist die cut on top.  Later this afternoon I'm going to work on the baby book layouts with that same color combination :)

That's it for now, peeps.  I've gotta get to the grocery store.  Cheers!

Supplies, all SU!
Stamps:  Watercolor Wings
Ink:  Calypso Coral, Crushed Curry, Marina Mist, Basic Gray marker
Paper:  Calypso Coral, Marina Mist, Basic Gray, Whisper White, Cherry on Top DSP

Yet another trip to Wegman's, eh? Too funny. Can't wait to see this place.

Very beautiful card. Looks like your favorite thing is the butterfly. I do like those, too. Brings back memories of the Monarchs landing on milkweed plants in the empty lot next to our house in Porterville way back when. And catching them out in Woodville at Mimi's in all the flowering plants Papa had around their house. Good memories.

Love you and see you soon!
