Blue Bayou Butterflies



This is for last Wednesday's sketch challenge on SCS. I made another one earlier in the week but wasn't quite pleased with it so sadly, it went to the scrap pile. For this one, I am pleased because I visualized this in my head and it actually turned out exactly as I wanted it to. :o) ...and for me, that is big! I stamped the butterfly on Very Vanilla cardstock and punched it out using the Square Scallop Punch. Then I stamped the butterfly three more times on a scrap piece of cardstock. It took no time at all to cut them out and piece on top of each so that the wings would stand out and this certainly worked easy enough!
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

Stamps: Priceless and Sincere Salutations
Cardstock: Blue Bayou, Soft Sky, VV
Ink: Blue Bayou
Accessories: Blue Bayou double stitched grosgrain, Square Scallop Punch, and CB folder Stylized Flowers

Fabulous card! I love that butterfly stamp. Funny thing, I did that sketch too with butterfly stamps from Verve (it'll show up on Tuesday on my blog). LOVE the scallop squares!! Might have to do that the next time.

Great colors too.
