Rainbows and Butterflies

Hello friends!

That was quite a post yesterday and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for all of your kind words…it was even hard to read those, but please know I appreciated your kind hearts immensely!

I have a very fun and cheerful card for you today!  Although I had missed the Cute Card Thursday challenge this last time, it is still going on and you have a few more days to enter if you wish to play along with us using your Bugs and/or Butterfly creations!  I just love playing with butterflies and the first thing that came to my mind was that past Simon Says Stamp card kit called “Beautiful Butterflies”.  There was some awesome rainbow patterned paper in the kit as well as a butterfly stencil and so I decided to mix them together!

I used the rainbow papers (from Lawn Fawn) for the base background of my card.  I took the butterfly stencil from the kit and sponged in some Distress Oxide inks for the different butterflies in rainbow ink color!  I’ve used:  Picked Raspberry, Orange Marmalade, Squeezed Lemon, Twisted Citron, Mermaid Lagoon, Wilted Violet and sponged them in with a sponge dauber.  Mounted it onto a strip of black cardstock and placed over the rainbow background.  I heat embossed a sentiment from the stamp set included in the kit with white embossing powder and then used some foam tape to mount it over the card.  I finished off the card with some black enamel dots.

Simple and fun card to make!  Thanks so much for stopping in today!!  See you soon!
