Celebrate with Butterflies - Stampin' Up! Butterfly Gala - Fab Friday 155

  It is definitely time to celebrate something!  It's Friday and to make it even better its a Fab Friday challenge day!  We have a fun sketch this time around!

  I really enjoyed this sketch and have some plans to make a few more designs with this basic layout.  For my card today I've paired it up with Butterfly Gala and some Sale-a-Bration (SAB) Botanical Butterfly DSP.

  I pulled my colors from the current Paper Players challenge as I liked the kind of pastel, kind of bright color combo.  And when I added in the black accents I thought the sweet butterflies just popped!

  I used 3 different Butterfly Gala images and then punched them out with the Butterfly Duet punch and just mounted them on my strip of DSP.  The little butterflies on the inside of the card.

  The sentiment flag is Grapefruit Grove and is embossed in black with one of the Itty Bitty Birthdays sentiments.  I even had a bit of retired Pool Party bakers twine so I used it to make a little bow to accent the side of the flag.  I added a little black faceted dot to each butterfly body for a tiny bit of shine.

  Even though you have almost 2 weeks to do our Fab Friday challenge don't wait!  I want to see what you all come up with for this sketch!  I can never have enough ideas and inspiration!

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
