golden butterfly...

Hello friends!!  Have a quick little post to share a couple of things.  First, I have a post up over at the CardMaker blog sharing a little candle wrap I made. I hope you will check it out here.   Second, I have a card that I made using this week's Splitcoaststamper's color combo (gold, yellow and green) and the layout from Sketchbook Saturday.


My wonderful friend, Greta, sent me a lovely birthday card and along with it came some butterflies that she die cut using the Penny Black Delicate Wings die set.  Thank you, Greta!!!!  I have the Soft Wings stamp that matches the dies so I was really excited to receive them.   I stamped the die cuts using my Delicata Golden Glitz ink and then adhered them together.   I did a bit of die cutting and embossing and then layered up everything per the sketch.  Some yellow sequins and green pearls were added to the body.  The sentiment is from the Stampin Up! set Blooming with Kindness.  I really love this color combo... so refreshing and dare I say... spring like?? 

Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white, SU! Wild Wasabi; PP:  SU! Polka Dot Parade dsp; Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black & Delicata Golden Glitz; Stamps:  Penny Black & Stampin Up!; Sequins:  Ellen Hutson; Pearls:  Hero Arts; Ribbon:  Stampin Up!

Oh my goodness--can't stop staring at this gorgeous card! Never would have thought of gold & yellow together, but you made the color combo & the sketch shine! So glad you made use of the die cuts, my friend.

This is beautiful, Rosemary! Love how you dressed up this candle--great project!--tried to put this in the CM Blog, but their spam filter is just too darn frustrating.
