Butterfly mornings

It's Monday. I'm feeling a bit better although I can't seem to eat much besides dry Cherrios and bananas. Well actually they aren't Cheerio's brand, they are some generic organic version (I forget), but it's all the same. My kids call them "toasted oats" so they apparently aren't brand snobs either!

I realized last night while sorting through photos on my computer, that I hadn't ever posted this card. I don't know why not, I like it just fine! Years ago I saw something like this somwhere and it stuck in my head. Some of you know that I don't normally like butterfly stamps, so if you feel the need to smirk at me, go ahead *grin* but...and this is a big but here folks...I didn't actually USE any butterfly stamps! HA! I only used the die and then stamped ON the cut-out. So there. *thumphhhb*

Supplies: Background Basics: Diamonds, Background Basics: Retro, and Signature Greetings paired with Hawaiian Shores, Enchanted Evening, Ripe Avocadoa and Stampers Select White. The button had sparkly gold flecks in it, so I used a gold glitter Spica pen and added touches on the butterflies, but you can't really see them here.

Thanks for stopping by today, hope you have a great Monday!

Great card! I love the way you stamped on the butterflies and gave a little space between circles.

Thank you for the birthday card! I got it in the mail today, and it is just beautiful. Thank you for thinking of me.
