Hello :-).....

Good Morning!! I just LOVE this card! I will definitely be using this color combo in the future! It is Brocade Blue, So Saffron, and Always Artichoke. The designer paper I used is from Le Jardin. I can't say I have been hoarding this was just a little more "out of the box" for me than I thought :-) Anyway, I need to use some of my expendables that are collecting dust to make room for more! LOL One thing about Stampin' Up! you do not ever have to worry about not loving future products!!!
Anyway, the card for today is fairly straight forward...I did stamp the butterfly on Very Vanilla and then again on another scrap piece. I cut it out and then gently folded in between the wings and the body and then glued it down on top of the stamped image. You can't really tell from the pic but it is very cool looking in person! I also pop dotted one of the flowers!
Well, I will be spending the day trying to stay warm!! It is snowing like mad here!! I do LOVE the snow...I will have to post a pic later today!! Stay warm!!!
