you are so kind...

Hey friends!!  Popping in with a quick post.  I recently got some new Stampin Up! goodies and created this little card using some of them.  I used the colors for the current Color Throwdown and the current Freshly Made Sketches layout so will be posting this there as well as in the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge of anything goes.  When I saw the new SU! set Watercolor Wings I had to have it and the matching dies.  I also wanted it because it coordinate with the SU! set Butterfly Basics and Butterfly Thinlets dies.  Everything about this card is pretty self-explanatory I think.  Die cut the butterfly, layer up the images using the inks, add a button and twine embellishment and some patterned paper and I was done.   The hardest thing about makng this card was finding patterned paper that worked with the pink and blue... everything else was easy!!  We had a crazy wild day with really strong winds (the kind we don't usually have at the end of August!) and rain.  Thankfully we didn't loose power or have a tree come down!   If tomorrow is like today I will be perfectly happy to stay inside and make some cards!!



Thanks for stopping by today...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  Recollections white; patterned paper:  Stampin Up! and My Mind's Eye; Stamps and dies:  Stampin Up!; Inks:  Stampin Up! and Memento; Button and twine:  PaperTrey Ink
