SSSC76 - Vintage Butterfly

Happy 4th of July!!!  It's time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge and you would think that because its the 4th of July I would have something red, white and blue but I don't.  I hope you're not getting sick of seeing Vintage style cards using this color combination, I guess I was just on a roll and went with it.  Karen's great sketch is a square but I opted to make my card standard size in order to have room for the stamped swirl and small butterflies as well as the spiral punched edge.  The main butterfly is layered (using the Beautiful Butterflies Bigz Die)with the bottom large butterfly in basic black, then the same sized butterfly cut out of the Newsprint designer paper with a smaller butterfly cut out in the center of it.  Then topped off with an embossed butterfly with punched out flower and rhinestone brad added to the center (see close up photo below).

Supplies: Beautiful Butterflies Bigz Die, Beautiful Wings Embosslits Die, Elements of Style, Newsprint DSP, Vintage Wallpaper Impressions Folder, Ribbons, Scallop Trim border punch, Spiral Border punch, Circle punches, Brads, Rhinestone brad, Boho Blossoms punch, Sponge, Dimensionals.  Colors: Basic Black, Daffodil Delight.

To play along create a card using Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch, then go to Karen’s blog The Sweetest Thing and link your card so we can all see your creation!
