TECC62 - Bright Butterfly

Good Saturday afternoon!! It is BEE-UTIFUL here today in sunny NorthWest GA. It's supposed to be 70 degrees today. Woohoo! Hello Spring! For those of you that don't know me very well, this is the first Spring I have seen in 5 years. I worked in public accounting for the last 5 years of my life so Spring was pretty much not existent in my life. As of this past January I am a SAHM again and loving every minute of it. Wow, God made such a beautiful place for us to live in, didn't he?

Now on to the card. This is for Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge TECC62 from yesterday. I used SU's Flight of the Butterfly stamp set and a new Designer Paper Pack I got this week called Rainbow Sherbet. I also got a new Martha Stewart border punch yesterday while I was out on a shopping excursion with my great friend Mercy Kerin. I know most of you know this wild and crazy girl. Well, I just want you to know that anything you have heard about her is true. LOL!! I cut the main panel image out with Circle Nesties and sponged the background with Tempting Turquoise and Green Galore while it was still in the circle frame. My first time doing this after seeing lots of people do it and I love the technique. I stamped the butterfly outline first in Basic Black ink on the main panel along with the sentiment. I stamped the butterfly again on a piece of Apricot Appeal and filled it in with the flower background stamp from the set in Tempting Turquoise. I then cut it out and popped it with dimensionals on the main image panel. It is finished off with White Organdy Ribbon and three Silver Brads.

Thanks for coming by to check me out today. I hope you have a wonderful weekend. Talk to you soon.
