Butterfly Tag




I spent some time at my sister's house on the weekend and we managed to make a few cards/tags each. I had in mind the current color challenge for this months' Hero Arts contest as well as the
Simon Says Stamp challenge which is to create a tag or ATC.


And here is what I landed up making using some PTI and HA goodies.


Paper: card stock (PTI); Neenah
Ink: Memento
Stamps: Hero Arts (Lattice Background); PTI (Beautiful Butterflies)
Other: Pink Seam Binding; PTI Butterfly die; gems; Corner chomper

The part that is difficult to see in this photo is that the butterfly is made up of several layers of die cut white cardstock with only the last layer being the designer paper.

Natasha and I went and saw Madagascar 3 today, such a fun movie.  Other that that just a lot of the same things happening, back and forth from the house checking on the building and fencing progress.  And then tonight I'll be going to a spinning class.

Wishing you all a wonderful day ahead!
