Butterflies Are Free

Mornin’, y’all! Today I thought I’d share one of the cards I made for the Splitcoast Stampers Dirty Dozen team. My term ended with May’s gallery so now I can start showing some cards. It was a huge honor to be part of that team and I’m so grateful for the opportunity.that I had to stamp along side of some of the best stampers in the world.

The theme for the first month was music—cards and or projects were to be inspired by music in some way. This card was inspired by Elton John’s ‘Butterflies Are Free’.


I’m using PTI’s Butterfly Dreams set for the butterflies and the sentiment. I stamped the butterfly images on Sweet Blush card stock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and cut them out, stamped the sentiment, added some sweet pink pearl bling, and attached the butterflies. A popped-up layer of Sweet Blush and True Black card stock give a little dimension to this CAS card. I really love how it turned out—I love the color combo, how the butterflies flowed on the page, and the CAS style.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I’ll be sharing more of my Dirty Dozen cards over the next few months and I hope you’ll enjoy seeing them.
