Prettiest Butterfly



The Stampin' Up! set " Butterfly of Happiness" is hands down my favorite butterfly set of all time. (Well, so far anyways) I have used it so many times, and I know it is a set I will have for many years to come. For this card I used a sketch from the adorable blog Stamping with a Whiff of Joy I used sketch #38



I used Not Quite Navy, Kraft, and Whisper White c/s. I stamped the fancy background image multiple times with a stamp from the Inkadinkado set "Garden Delight". The dotted BG is from the Fall Winter SU hostess DP pack. I used my SU Mat Stack to pierce the holes and then I used Linen thread and an embroidery needle for the stitching. The flowers are also from the "Butterfly of Happiness" set, that I accented with Provo Craft beads. (That took awhile). The main butterfly image is raised with a pop dot. All in all I am very happy with the way this card turned out! I hope that you have a fabulous day!

Did you add the blue to the "inside" of the butterfly or is it part of the stamp? It's such a pretty effect, I'd love to know how you did it.

Great quote too!

The blue is part of the stamp. All I did was ink up the stamp and stamp it. Then cut it out. Thank you for the sweet comments!
