Papillon Potpourri

Good day to all of you!  I hope you are all well, summer has finally arrived in our part of the world!

Today I want to share with you a card that I found over on Sandi MacIver's blog, you can see hers HERE.  I did do mine just a bit different, for one, no ribbon because all of my ribbon is retired and after I did my embossing I noticed I did that different than hers too, so I just went with what I had done and I think it turned out great!  For the butterflies, just stamp them with Stazon black ink onto Whisper White card stock, then take your two colors and using a sponge dauber, apply ink first to the center of the butterfly, than with another sponge dauber apply your second color to the outside area of the first color (I used Marina Mist and Daffodil Delight, which mixed together makes a small area of green too), then take the Elegant Butterfly punch and punch them out!  I used Glue Dots to adhere them to the card stock.  I used the Delicate Designs and Needlepoint embossing folders for the embossing.  The DSP is Polka Dot Parade and I used a Rhinestone and the Pearls under the Simply Sketched sentiment.

I hope you try this simple but easy card, so pretty in real life!    Mary
