Pink Butterfly...

Hello friends!!   Have a card I made for a few challenges.  A few weeks ago I entered a card into the Deconstructed Sketch challenge (love that challenge!) and to my delight discovered the following week that Jen, the super talented creator of said Deconstructed Sketch, had picked my card as one of her favorites!!  So cool!!!   My card today uses the current Deconstructed Sketch and the color combo from Dynamic Duos (pink and celery green).  I'm also going to pop this into the current Catered Crop challenge to use white.



The stamps are from two Taylored Expressions sets:  Make it Amazing and Vintage Dreamer.  I stamped the butterfly from Make it Amazing using Pretty in Pink ink and then die cut it using the matching TE butterfly die.  The circular image from Vintage Dreamer was stamped using Certain Celery and then die cut using a Spellbinders plain circle.  I used my Swiss Dot embossing folder on the green cardstock so that everything wasn't quite so flat.  The bow was made using my absolutely adorable bow die set from Lil' Inker Designs.   I did modify the bow a bit by cutting the tail piece in half and then arranging the ends as you see. 

Thanks for stopping by....

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white; SU! Pretty in Pink; Close to My Heart green; Inks:  Pretty in Pink and Certain Celery; Dies:  Taylored Expressions, Spellbinders & Lil' Inker Designs; Swiss Dot EF
