Butterfly Love - Butterfly Gala - Fab Friday 156

  Butterfly love might be an understatement with the Butterfly Duet punch being unavailable only a month into the Occasions catalog!  It might be better termed as Butterfly Obsession!  It's great to see the Butterfly Gala set be so popular and we know now the punch will carry over so that's a relief because I was so sad not to get to use this bundle at my last class.  I'm looking forward to showing off more projects with it and fingers crossed Stampin' Up! will get more in stock sooner rather than later!

  Today is a Fab Friday challenge day so I paired up the sweet butterflies with this fun color combo!  I think these colors work perfectly for a Valentine's Day card.

    And what about the Grapefruit Grove foil paper that's a Sale-a-Bration reward (paired with Lovely Lipstick)?  It's such a fun pop of shiny color that I used it twice on this card.  Once on the layer behind the Subtle embossed Whisper White panel and then as the strip behind the butterflies.

  Each butterfly is the same pattern stamped with Memento and then colored with Stampin' Write markers in different combinations.  Once they were all colored I punched them out and popped them on the card front with dimensionals.  I added punched hearts in each of the challenge colors, colored them with Wink of Stella and topped with a black faceted dot in the center of each.

  The 'love' was die cut and stacked 3 times to make a sturdier element.  This die can be found in the Sunshine Wishes thinlet set that coordinates with the Sunshine Saying stamp set which is where the 'you' came from.

  Check out the rest of the Fab Friday Design Team samples and then play along.  You have almost 2 weeks to join in so there aren't any excuses!  I can't wait to see your card in our gallery!

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
