Butterfly Blues

Today's card is created using Labels Twenty-Eight, along with the Lacey Circles Spellbinders® Nestabilities

 Both Dies have been cut/embossed using the Grand Calibur® Die cutting and Embossing Machine. 

The handmade flower has been created using Standard Circles LG Spellbinders® Nestabilities in mixed sizes.  The circles are made using textured paper and have been sponged using
IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® Memento™ Dye Ink in Espresso Truffle.

The butterfly from Penny Black Inc. Social Butterfly stamp set has been stamped using IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® VersaFine™ Archival Pigment Ink in Vintage Sepia.  The gorgeous bling is from  Want2ScrapScrapbook by Adhesives by 3L - 3D Foam Squares and E-Z Runner have been used on this card.

  9. Beautiful card! I love all the details and the colors. I'm thinking that for our challenge the roses may be too think for mailing in an envelope for first class postage? Not sure but the ones I've used like that are. One of our rules is that all cards linked must fit flat in an envelope. I do love your card though and hope you will join us again at Cards in Envy and thank you for sharing your card with us! ~ Sandy, CIE Host
