BUTTERFLY VALENTINE

Made a card for a challenge that is new for me - ColorQ - and here is the inspiration photo - such gorgeous colors together!!!
First die cut the Memory Box heart from white cardstock.  Then cut it again from scraps of the dark pink, light pink, red and orange (sorry the orange doesn't look very "orangey" in the photo!) and snipped out the butterflies.  Arranged the butterflies on the white and attached them with a dot of glue in the center.  Used a Sakura clear glitter pen to give all the butterflies a little shine.  Stamped the "happy" (a very old Hero Arts stamp) in red royal HA shadow ink.  The "valentine's day" was stamped from PTI "Year Round Happiness" in Versamark and embossed with HA white embossing powder.  Popped it all up on a white card base.

You can get the Hero Arts products and Versamark ink I used at a 15% discount on your order of $25.00 or more by using BETTY15 code at a2z Scrapbooking.

Thanks for stopping by and always enjoy reading your kind comments.  Betty
