The butterfly…CPS #222

Welcome back! This week, MFT is sponsoring Card Positioning Systems. Here’s the sketch:


Love this sketch and here’s my take on it. I decided to go Shabby Chic again today :) Using papers from Pink Paislee’s Butterfly Garden I cut out the Four Points Frame Die-namics die and stamped a sentiment from Clearly Sentimental About Butterflies (temporarily out of stock). Then I stamped a butterfly from the set and cut it out. The rest is just following the sketch, some extreme distressing and some sweet, sweet embellishments.


Here’s the inside with another sentiment from the set and a border using the Medium Simply Scallops Die-namics die. I removed some of the pearls from the front-of-the-card bling to use on the border. They were going to be covered up, so why not, right?




Thanks so much for dropping by today!
