Fluttering By...

Though this isn't Valentine related, it sure is soft and girly!

But I love that butterfly so! It's a die cut from the Graphically Speaking Cartridge from ProvoCraft. When the challenge at Practical Scrappers was to use a die cut this cutie came to mind immediately!

Though this is a simple card, I think it's elegant. Except for my horrible handwriting! I so wish I had a stamp that said something along the lines of "fluttering by" but I don't. You can bet I'm on a mission to find one though!



Anyhow, I cut the background and the wing outline from two different shades of pink and added a generous amount of glitter to the outline of the wings. Added some pearls down the body and viola... a delicate, beautiful butterfly! I stamped a flourish in a light pink to give a hint of it fluttering about. I scored a few lines across the bottom and tied a pink ribbon to give the bottom of the card a little bit of visual weight.

I really would like to make simpler cards like this more often, but I always want to add a ton of stuff to them!
