SFYTT - Easter Butterfly

Today's card is an Easter card I created using Jen's Sketch for You to Try Challenge, since I don't really own any Easter stamp sets other than the Easter Beauty set, I was looking through my stamps and thought a butterfly would be a good symbol for Easter. A few details about the card, the wings on the butterfly have Dazzling Diamonds on them, the two oval pieces were cut and embossed using my Nestabilities and then pop dotted and the Pink Pirouette panel was embossed with my Swiss Dot Cuttlebug embossing folder.


Supplies: Flight of the Butterfly, Easter Beauty, CB embossing, Nesties, Scallop edge punch, Ribbon, Dazzling Diamonds, Brads, Pop dots. Colors: Whisper White, Certainly Celery, Barley Banana, Pink Pierette.





Hope your having a great day!

So pretty! I think the butterfly is a terrific image for Easter since butterflies are a rebirth from the caterpillar. Great use of the sketch too.
