More Butterflies!

Happy Thursday!  I'm not used to posting cards in the middle of the day!  This is going to be a quick one because I need to down my tea and head into the school for pizza day lunch supervision then a volunteering session in Jacob's class.  

I really wanted to give the Dynamic Duos challenge a go this week.  With my crazy new schedule I don't have a lot of time to craft but decided I could kill two birds with one stone in this card and incorporated the sketch from The Fab Friday challenge!  Two fantastic sites!  Love the new Fab Friday challenge!

The DD challenge this week was Cherry Cobbler and our choice - I chose black!  I love black!  Too much actually!  I decided to get out the First Edition DSP since I hadn't used it in a while and thought it would be a great background.  Since the Papillon Potpourri was already out from Wednesday's card I decided to use it again!  I cut out the label using the "Apothecary Accents" framelits then cut another two out in black and pieced them together to make the Vanilla one look framed.  I decided not to put a sentiment on this card so I can personalize it as need be.   Thought it could be used as pretty much an "anything" kind of card.

Cardstock: Basic Black, Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla
DSP: First Edition
Stamps: Papillon Potpourri
Ink: Basic Black
Other: Sanding block, Apothecary Accents Framelit, Basic Pearls, Elegant Butterfly Punch, Dimensionals

Thanks for stopping by!
Have a great day!



  1. Jen this is simply stunning! Love the little turned down edge on the text panel and the butterfly softly perched on the pretty label. The trio of banners with the pearl accents really sets this off. Thanks for playing along with us at Dynamic Duos!
