Vintage Butterfly

Card Patterns     Sketch 113
CCEE Stampers     CCEE 1117-Add A Butterfly
Theme Thursday     Theme Thrusday: Vintage

Theme Thursday is a new challenge for me. They look like they are going to be a fun place to play. They encourage all supplies and lots of different themes. I like that because I usually like to use several different companies products on one card unless otherwise specified. I try to spread the love around.
I haven't played at CCEE Stampers for awhile, but I have gotten off to a slow start this year, and I love Card Patterns, they always have great sketches and lots of cool prizes and Guest Artists.
This card is pretty straight forward no extreme techniques. I heat embossed the butterfly and colored it with my water brush with ink off the ink pad to pick up the colors in the background to keep it pleasingly tied together.
Supplies: Ivory Card Blank 4" X 5 1/2" Halcraft, Papers: SU-Designer Series Paper Botanical Gazette, Stamp: SU-All A Flutter, Ink:SU-Soft Suede, Crushed Curry, Cherry Cobbler, VersaMark, SU clear embossing powder, Spellbinders Nestabilities-Classic Scallop Circle Lg., SU-antique brads, ribbon and lace-Offray, SU dimensionals, glue dots.

Thanks for visiting and viewing,

Love that layout. I have seen it before and have been meaning to use it! It really looks fab with that wide crocheted lace down the middle. Those gorgeous brads are the perfect finishing touch.

Hope you are having a great weekend.
