Blushing Butterflies!

I made this card tonight to send to a friend. I was inspired by a card I saw by Mary Brown here. I just changed up the colors, and made it into a standard size card (I think a little taller than hers?).

Here's a close-up of the butterflies. They're from the new Strength and Hope set (when you purchase the set, Stampin' Up! donates $2 toward Breast Cancer Research - pretty cool). I love this set - it really is beautiful! You can see more about the set by clicking on the icon on the sidebar ad.

I stamped the butterflies in Blushing Bride, then I sponged some Crumb Cake and a little Soft Suede on them. I also added some pearls for their bodies - and, yep, I even cut them out, with scissors! :)

And the saying came from the Three Little Words set.

I made a "no tails" bow (see my picture tutorial here) so hopefully it will mail a little flatter (ya, hmmm?!). Anyway, I kind of like the look of that kind of bow no matter how flat it goes! And I added a few more pearls in the top corner to balance things out.

Thanks for stopping by,
