Betsy's Butterfly - Fab Fri 13

Hey Stampers, 

Happy Thursday ! My card today is inspired by the cute sketch over at Fab Friday. This sketch is SUPER fun, and my take on it is pretty true to it (I think). I used the Betsy's Blossoms stamp set, the Floral District DSP and my much loved Beautiful Butterflies die ! Take a look at what I came up with !!

Cute, right ?? Since they used a butterfly in the sketch, I couldn't get out of my head the idea of using my Beautiful Butterflies die. So I thought it would be great to stamp the butterflies with a background stamp, but looking at my stamp stash (or more like a mountain of stamps) I spied the awesome large flower stamp from Betsy's Blossoms and thought that would look great !! And then I remembered there was a great DSP pattern from Floral District that used that image, so that was where I got my color combo of Daffodil Delight, Lucky Limeade and Rich Razzleberry. With those elements all lined up, this card cake together pretty quickly !! First I die cut a large butterfly from the die in Daffodil Delight and then stamped the flower image all over it, also in Daffodil Delight ink. Then a smaller butterfly was cut out in Whisper White and stamped with the same image in Rich Razzleberry ink. A Boho Blossom in Rich Razzleberry paired with a Lucky Limeade Printed Brad made a fun centre for this butterfly element. I adhered them together using a dimensionals, so they would be nice and popped up. This was then attached to a oval die cut from the Ovals Collections Framelits that I embossed with the Honeycomb folder. 

A banner of the Floral District DSP was put on a layer of Rich Razzleberry measuring 4" x 5-1/4". I stamped the little sentiment from the Friendly Phrases stamp set in Lucky Limeade ink and then die cut it using the cute banner framelit from the Hearts a Flutter Collection. I stuck that one on top of the DSP banner, tucked under the Oval die cut. This was all attached to a Daffodil Delight card base. Love it !!

I really had fun playing along at Fab Friday this week. I just love playing with challenges !! Thanks a lot for coming by today and Happy Stamping !!
