Golden Butterfly:


Good morning friends.  I hope you have been enjoying your week, the great news is TGIF!  Need I say more?

Today I am sharing a rather simple looking card, unfortunately it took me 3 hours to put together.  How is that even possible?  
 Card Ingredients:  Stampers Anonymous butterfly stamp and Waltzing Mouse Vintage Label 18 border stamp, Martha Stewart Clear embossing ink, Stampendous! Pirate Gold embossing powder, Labels 18 and Circle Nesties, Cuttlebug Swiss Dots and Script folders, Celebrate It ribbon, KaiserCraft Sparklets.  Tools:  sewing machine.

I made this golden butterfly for the following challenges:  The Pink Elephant - print it;  City Crafter - natural colors;  Divas by Design - bling it up;  Little Miss Muffet - fancy or lacy;   Perfect Sentiments - get well with sketch:

And I musn't forget to tell you about StampFairy's Linda Spring, today's new release:

Enjoy your Friday and thanks for the visit!
