FTTC109– Live in the Moment!

Hello everyone~

It’s time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge (FTTC109)!! Silke Ledlow is the challenge host and she is challenging us to use one of her favorite elements….*Butterflies*!! We cannot wait to see your butterflies card/project! For more detail about the challenge, Please visit Flourishes blog.

I used Gerber Daisies set for the image and Life Lines for the sentiment.  I stamped the daisies image on the white cardstock and lightly colored with Copic markers. The butterflies were stamped on the scrap and the wings were paper pieced with yellow designer paper. They are also colored with the Copic markers. After I added the pink designer paper on the bottom of the card, I embellished with lace trim, polka dots ribbon & bow with pearl brad. To complete the card, I dabbed the Stickles on the daisies and butterflies.

This card is also submitted Flourishes Release Week Challenge (FLLCMAR11) – use a die cut, a border punch, a corner punch or any type of decorative border! No problem!! I use decorative edge with border punch for the most of my cards :)
