you are so special...

Hello!!! Stopping in with a card for the current MFT color challenge and sketch challenge.  Recently got the beautiful MFT Beautiful Butterflies card kit and whipped up my card using the kit.  I used the two largest butterflies in the set and did some two step stamping.  To be honest it was really difficult lining up all the images on the yellow butterfly mainly because the yellow was so light.  But with the help of my mini MISTI I finally got it done.  The blue butterfly was much easier to create!  Once I got the butterflies stamped I die cut them with the matching dies.  The fame was created by using the two largest dies in the Stitched Mini Scallop Rectangle dies and the gray cardstock.  A panel of white woodgrain cardstock was die cut along with some light gray patterned paper from My Favorite Things.   I layered up all the main elements per the sketch and then stamped the sentiment from the sentiments set in the kit on vellum with watermark ink and embossed with black embossing powder.  The sentiment was then die cut with a Stitched Fishtail Flag Stax die.  The banner was adhered along with some yellow sequins and then adhered to a light blue cardstock base.   Love, love, love these butterfly stamps and dies!!

Wishing you a wonderful day...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  white, light blue, gray, vellum and woodgrain; Stamps:  My Favorite Things; Dies:  My Favorite Things and AJVD; Inks:  VersaMark watermark ink, Memento Dandelion; SU! Bordering on Blue; yellow sequins; Filigree black embossing powder
