Love is like a Butterfly

Hello Blog Friends - I think I have an addiction - to this gorgeous butterfly from  the Penny Black Inc. 


It is definitely my 'go to' butterfly, featured in many of my projects - but I cannot help it - it just calls my name.  It has been stamped using IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® VersaFine™ Archival Pigment Ink in Vintage Sepia.


 The patterned paper is from Authentique Paper and the bling from Want2Scrap©.  The bottom layer has been embossed using the Dotted Flowers Spellbinders M-Bossabilities folder.

The sentiment is from the Flourishes
and has been cut/embossed using the Labels Thirty-One Spellbinders® Nestabilities® and the Grand Calibur Machine.

This card is for the following challenges: 
Crafting By Designs  - Anything goes 
Creative Moments - Anything goes/Things with Wings
Divas by Design - Buttons and Bows 
House That Stamps Built - Things with Wings
