Butterfly Customer Appreciation - Stampin' Up! Watercolor Wings

  I needed to make a few thank you cards so I combined 2 challenges that I came across.  A color one from Paper Players using Crumb Cake, Bermuda Bay and Old Olive and the sketch is from Mojo Monday.  

  I love these colors together!  The Bermuda Bay and Old Olive just seem like summer colors to me so I went with Watercolor Wings to make a butterfly card.

  The lightest layer is Bermuda Bay stamped off once, then in full strength with the more detailed stamp and then the edges are stamped in Old Olive stamped off once.  I used the coordinating framelits, Bold Butterfly to cut it out and then added the Old Olive body also stamped off.  Don't forget that this stamp set and framelit set are bundled together to save 15%!  Great deal!

  The card base is Crumb Cake and then I made a flag with the new Corrugated Paper which I hadn't cut into yet but is nice weight and texture for accent pieces.  I stamped the little dotted border stamp in white craft ink across the card.  The sentiment from One Big Meaning is stamped underneath in Crumb Cake ink.

  Using my circles framelits I created a thin circle and accented it with pearls and a few strands pulled from a piece of thick baker's twine.  I popped the butterfly up on dimensionals.

  We have a fun day at the pool planned so I better go get all my chores taken care of so I can relax and enjoy the day!

 Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
