Patterned Butterflies


Hi there!  Hope you're all enjoying your weekend.  I got a bit of crafty time today and I really wanted to play along with the sketch over at The Challenge as they are taking a summer break after this.  I stuck very closely to the sketch and made use of some patterned papers and a few dies - no stamping in sight.  I actually made two cards but the one below veered off from the sketch a bit by using a full circle instead of a half circle.  I love my CAS designs but every once in a while I get a patterned paper bug and I just have to go with it!



Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (Poppy Parade, So Saffron, Night of Navy, Early Espresso) Stampin' Up
Patterned Paper: (Dolled Up 6x6, Indie Chic 6x6) My Mind's Eye
Dies:  (Stitched Circles) Lil' Inker Designs, (Butterfly) Papertrey Ink, (Many Thanks) Essentials by Ellen
Gems:  Doodlebug

ooh, look at all that design paper! These are so lovely Jen, I really must get out my design paper. I could make about 1000 of these and still have paper left over lol.... thanks for the inspiration and the reminder.

Love your two versions of this card. Brilliant use of patterned papers. Now you can go buy more. Isn't that how it works?
