Be Happy Butterfly


I don’t know why, but these colors remind me of a Dreamscicle.  This card is actually left over pieces I had laying on my table.  The half circles are leftovers of a Nestabilities frame I was cutting and I hung on to them.  After playing around with them a little bit, they reminded me of a butterfly.  I pulled out a silver photo turn and melted embossing powder on it and wrapped it with sparkly thread  and added a bling for the head.  The antenna are the stamen of a flower from my stash.


This was a quick and easy card, 4"x4" which is small for me.   If it works out, I have another one planned from my scrap pile.  All in all, an easy blogging day!  Wishing you much joy today!

    Dreamscicles used to be one of my favs as a kid and this paper is just beautiful. I just ordered a bunch of new paper and can hardly wait for it to get here.
