A little Butterfly Card….

I made this card using some new (to me) stamps I picked up at my LSS. They are a set of  8 or 10 (can’t remember and am too lazy to walk downstairs) little rubber stamps on the end of long wooden tubes. I just LOVED the effect I saw done with them and had to try myself. I picked several complimenting inks and stamped them in a rough oval using first, second, and third generation stamping.  I kept the rest of the card simple as the stamped image is so busy. That border is a newly acquired  MS punch .  All supplies except the punches, stamps, and bitty pearls are CTMH.

People at my house are feeling better except hubby who came home from work early today after being sick…well he is last one to get this so maybe we are now done!  Thanks for all your good wishes.

Have a wonderful Wednesday, thanks for stopping by.

Enjoy!

So glad you guys are on the mend!!

Your stamping on this card is fabulous. I can just picture myself trying something like this sitting at my table, feet surrounded by little squares of tries that DIDN'T work!

Beautiful card, Sarah! Love the colors you chose, they work together perfectly. You know I love me some butterflies, so it would have been hard to go wrong here, but man oh man, this packs a punch for me!

I'm SO glad that the illies are on their way out of your house! No fun at all. Hope your hubby feels better quick and you can all be 100% healthy again soon!
