Butterfly Wishes

My card tonight turned out really nicely I think. I love this butterfly image from a set by Gina K called Hope is Faith. I also used a stamp from Hang in There by Theresa Momber. It's the stamped branches in the background.

The background paper is from Basic Grey Origins. I used a Martha Stewart butterfly punch at the left edge. The circle is cut with Nestabilities and then sponged with blue ink over the branches. I added the ribbon and rhinestones as accent.

On the inside a repeated a little bit of the Basic Grey paper and the circle with background images and stamped a sentiment to finish it off.

This card works for a couple of challenges:
  • Just Us Girls: sketch challenge #23. I fell in love with this sketch when I saw it!
  • Scrap-Creations: Going Grey challenge #1. Use Basic Grey paper on a celebration card.
I am away at a conference for work for the next few days. Hopefully I'll find time on the weekend to get back to crafting. Have a wonderful rest of the week and take care!

Big hugs to you all,
