Stamping 411 Sketch Challenge 193 and Inkspirations 60

Sunday, March 6, 2011

I decided that I had not used my Beautiful Butterflies Sizzix die enough, so I thought I'd dig it out for the card I'd make with the Inkspirations and Stamping 411 challenges.



I just love a square card (despite the fact that they cost more to mail).  But since I have a stash of stamps at the ready for mailing these cards, I went ahead and made one that is 5 1/4 inch square.


And despite the fact that the sketch graphic was calling for me to use the big stamp from the Petal Pizzazz stamp set, I resisted!  I thought a butterfly made from layers of So Saffron and Wild Wasabi would be just the thing.  I stamped the small butterfly with Fine Flourish and the sentiment is from Upsy Daisy.  And to make sure my little butterfly really stood out, I gave her a little bling in the way of some rhinestones down the middle.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have time to stamp today!
