HAPPY BUTTERFLY

It's just a freezing dreary Sunday here in Nebraska and I'm listening to my Husker women's basketball game against Wisconsin (EDIT: woo hoo we won!!) and playing with my stamps.  Had the piece of watercolored paper on my desk - so die cut the butterfly from PTI, smooshed it in Versamark and then into HA sparkle embossing powder.  Then backed it with a piece of vellum.

Die cut a piece of white cardstock with MFT's stitched rectangle and then embossed this piece with Card Concepts "butterfly kisses" - mounted this on the card base with foam tape.   Die cut the "happy" in gold with HA's new Stamp & Cut.  Added the little gold heart from Teresa Collins which I think ties it all together nicely.  Inside is blank until I need this card.

a2z Scrapbooking's challenge this month is embossing - also an embossing challenge at Happy Little Stampers.  The a2z store also has the new HA 2015 release is stock - and you can pick up all kinds of great new items at a 15% discount ($25 order) with my BETTY15 discount code.

Will enter this in Happy Little Stampers challenge.

Thanks for stopping by and your kind comments.  Betty

  2. Another classy, elegant card from you, Betty! Love that you embossed the butterfly and the dry embossed panel is so pretty, too.

    BTW, one of my grandsons (Alex from Parker, CO) just signed his letter of intent to attend Nebraska Wesleyan and play for their football team. He is really psyched about this. :) Very proud of him.
