I'm visiting my family this week, so it was a bit of a challenge when I sat down to make a card yesterday. I brought a bag of supplies with me, with just a few basics, but I totally forgot a few key essentials. There are a lot of challenges this week that I want to do, but just don't have the supplies for! I managed to put together this card for i{heart}2stamp's Sketch For You To Try:

I thought the sketch this week was neat:


Here are the DEEtails:

1. I don't have all my circle punches with me, so I had to find something that I had that would work with this sketch. I decided on butterflies. I stamped two butterfly images from my Flight of the Butterfly set on Bordering Blue card stock and punched them out.

2. Then I took some DMC floss and tied some little antennae for my butterfly. That was the hardest part of my card!

3. I chose the color scheme based on the cute brown and blue polka dot ribbon that I had packed. I've been wanting to use it, so here it is!

4. I stamped the cute butterfly sentiment from the Flight of the Butterfly set onto a Kraft mat. Then I arranged my butterflies onto the card.

5. I adhered the mat onto a Chocolate Chip mat. The tiny bit of Chocolate Chip peeking out made a huge difference! Then I adhered it onto my Bordering Blue card.

Hope you like it!


  1. Love the ribbon and the way the words flow behind the fluttering butterflies

  2. Darling butterflies. The blue and kraft are very swank together :) Hugs, M
