Anyway, I stamped this card last night and the picture isn't the best. I probably should have taken it this morning since I made myself a couple of Mojitos last night....and then stamped. Yikes! LOL! No, I usually don't drink alone so don't go thinking I have a problem or anything. My only addiction is Stampin' UP! LOL! Okay now about my card. I simply stamped a butterfly from the Papillion Potpourri stamp set that is actually on special right now for a bundled price of 15% off. You get the stamp set and the Mini Butterfly Punch in the bundle. This is only till the end of the month and I will give you the link later in my post. My card base is Calypso Coral and I took another piece of Calypso Coral and used the Scallop Trim Border Punch to scallop the edges as I was following the Sunday Stamps Challenge for my card. You can hardly see the punch. I simply stamped one of many images in Calypso Coral in a brick pattern and then snailed that scalloped piece of to my card. I stamped the birthday greeting from the Four You stamp set in Calypso Coral ink on Whisper White and stamped the antennas also. Then on a scrap piece of paper I stamped the little butterflies and punched them out with the Bitty Butterfly Punch. I adhered them by the antennas with Glue Dots. Then I sponged the edges and wrapped some Baker's Twine around it and adhered that piece with dimensionals. Walla, I was done. It was a nice and easy sketch for a really quick card.
