GCA #91 - Where the Butterflies Are.


Hello all!!!  Another week has gone by and I spent time playing with my new goodies.  I have lots more to show you this week.

Butterflies are everywhere and one of my favorites.  They can be so beautiful with their unusual colors and designs, it just amazes me.

This week, you need to have a butterfly somewhere on your creation.  It can be stamped, on dsp, a die cut or made with ribbon.  However you decide to include a butterfly, at least one must be on your creation.

My sample for you uses the Beautiful Wings embosslit from SU!  This is the largest of the butterflies and was cut/embossed from Sweet Pea dsp.

The card was put together using all scraps from my stash!  I love it when I can do that!!  The card base is Kiwi Kiss and folded at the top.  Layered with White, and the layout is from the Stampin' Connection weekly sketch challenge.  I ran the Chocolate Chip piece through my Big Shot with the lattice eb folder and punched the edge with the scallop trim border punch.  The strip of Ruby Red dsp comes from the Write Stuff speciality dsp. 

For the center of the butterfly I punched the scallop circle from the Bitty punches and topped it with one of the clear bitty scallop circle buttons.  The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes.

Upload your creation to either your blog or to an online gallery and post a link to your creation to this blog entry by June 12, 2010 at 12 midnight. I will choose the winner the next day. If you upload your card to SCS, PaperCraft Planet, Stampin' Addicts or Stamp TV, please put GCA91 in your keywords. That way everyone can see all of the wonderful creations at once!

Even if you can't make the drawing deadline, PLEASE feel free to participate in the challenges and upload your creations at any time. I would love to see it! And yes, my challenge is open to everyone who visits, even if you live outside the US!

Happy Stamping!!!!
