Joan's Challenge Butterfly, flutterby

Good Evening Ladies,
I know ...two posts in one day. I created a second card for Joan's Challenge Butterfly, flutterby.
Click on the link to get to the challenge and come join us!
The requirements this week are as follows:
Use polka dots
Use some vellum
Use butterflies
Use any colors
Use something that can be purchased at
Here is my card....
 Butterflies...Wow! what a fun challenge! I started with the Bugaboo Stamp set. The butterfly girl is stamped in Memento ink on Bristol paper. She was then colorized with Copic markers. She was then cut with the Spellbinders die set Decorative Labels Eight. This was mount on dark brown card stock. The dark brown card stock was then mounted on the blue and brown polka dotted paper. The next business of order was to use vellum on this card. So I pulled out my Cheery Lynn die DL 121 Sunflower. I purchased this die at Joan's. This die has been a staple in my collection. I cut the petal part of the die four times. Each petal edge was inked with Color Box pigment ink in blue. I then pinched each petal to create lift. The center was cut once and the edges were inked. Each layer was stacked with pop tape in between and pop tape under the center. A button was added to the center of the flower. A leaf die cut peaks out from under the sunflower. This is one leaf cut from the leaf trio die from Cheery Lynn. I also purchased this die at Joan's. A pearl sprig accents the flower. Next was the butterflies. They were cut from the Cheery Lynn die set Exotic Butterfly Small DL113 in blue card stock.

I love all the dies I buy at Joan's. They can be used in endless combinations. I feel you get a lot of bang for your buck on dies. I do so love to stamp so most of my cards have a stamped image of some kind or another. I have on order at Joan's the lamb from Our Daily Bread. I can't wait to get it. Check out all of the our daily bread stamps. Joan can order them for you. You won't be disappointed with this stamp company. They have a great sample collection.
Happy Scraps,
Mrs. Swandog
