Butterflies A Flutter
The stars on the sketch made me smile as I finally own a Sizzex star die (bought with a 50% off coupon at Michael's this week)!! The hard part is I have to wait until Christmas to get it!! Yes, you read right - Christmas! I actually shop all year round for birthday and Christmas gifts for the family and for myself so I can take full advantage of sales and markdowns, but it makes it awfully hard to stay out of the ones I buy for myself LOL! Some of you may very well remember my mentioning some of my pressie B & Es last year before Christmas and my birthday. I became a master of using and repackaging. I know, my bad!! Will have to put the die somewhere that is a pain in the butt to get in to so I'm not tempted to "sample" it.
Sorry....I regress, or maybe just confess LOL!! On to the card! I couldn't resists using my Stampin' Up Sizzex butterfly die as the butterflies are so gorgeous and work perfectly with the sketch. I even snuck some Swiss Dots into the action by embossing the butterflies. The ribbon, which I got from one of my ribbon bin diving adventures at Michael's, was my inspiration for the colours. The rest is pretty self explanatory.
Thanks for sharing a part of your day with me today.
