Fluttering Butterflies

Hello Everyone!!!  Today's card was made especially for the Butterfly Blog Linky Party which was created by Eva Dobilas!  She's counting down to Spring and wants to see some butterflies and asked a lot of blog friends to join in the fun!!!  To find the list of all those playing along go to Eva's Blog, For the Love of Life!

When I thought of butterflies, I reached for my Butterflies and Blossoms set by Flourishes - love this beautiful set!  I stamped the flowers and butterflies onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copics (flowers: 0, BV00, BV02, BV04, G20, G21, G24; Butterflies: YR12, YR16, YR18, YR24, C1, B000).  The butterflies were cut out and popped up on X-press It Foam Tape.  I airbrushed around the flowers to make the paper more creamy than stark white and cut it with Large Circle Nestabilities, matting with Pumpkin Pie cut with Lacey Circles.  The pretty paper is from the new MME Mabel Colletion 6 x 6 Paper Pad.  (*sigh* so happy MME comes in 6 x 6 now!!)  Added a little ivory ribbon at the bottom and topped with a notched tag made with Tag Lines.  Finished with an ivory bow, pale orange button and a little gold cord.

Stamps - Butterflies and Blossoms, Tag Lines (Flourishes)
Paper - X-press It Blending Card, Aqua Bazzill, Very Vanilla, Pumpkin Pie, MME Mabel DP
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories - Copics, Large Circle Nestabilities, Lacey Circle Nestabilities, MS Arch Lattice Punch, Ivory Satin Ribbon, Bow Easy, Button, Gold Cord, Scissors, Foam Tape.
