Thanks so Much - Butterfly #1

Hi, Friends.....

I got super-inspired with Mrs A's Butterfly Challenge this fortnight......esp when I realized it would close in less than 24 hrs!! lol... Nothing like a deadline to light a fire underneath me. I ended up making three cards!

Here's the Butterfly Wheel for this fortnight. The color elements are: Sage, Salmon, and Sky Blue. The theme elements are: Stitching, Spots, and Step Block Card.

I opened my butterfly box and immediately spied two bags of applicable items: a bag of goodies that Mrs. A sent me as a prize long ago with all sorts of sage colored items, and a bag from crafty pal, Karen Ladd, with some adhesive sheets of printed fabric/paper...not exactly sure what they are....but they also have sage on them. (THANKS, Karen and Mrs. A!!!)

I used both patterns of the adhesive prints on this card, one for the background and one for the tag. I added a lovely fancy circle diecut from Mrs. A's package. I also used the "Stitched" theme element with the stitched square sentiment panel. My butterflies are little brads.....a single butterfly brad and a corner arrangement brad.

Supplies used include:
Close to my Heart - A Little Love Petite Perks (retired)
Versafine ink in Spanish Moss
My Favorite Things Die-namics - Stitched Square STAX die set
Winnie & Walter - Essentials: Katharine Cutaways die set
Fancy Die Cut from Mrs. A - I'm not sure of brand
Adhesive Printed Fabric/Paper from Karen Ladd
Crinkled seam binding ribbon for bow
Eyelet Outlet - Butterfly Brads
Eyelet Outlet - Butterfly Corner Brads

Hope you like my card. I have two more to share so I will be back before too long. See you then!!
