Butterfly Sketch #21

Saying goodbye to Summer is always painful, but maybe this lovely butterfly will help keep the warmth of summer in our hearts all year long .
                                                               This is the sketch for this week over at Atlantic Heart Sketch Challenge .I just loved doing this card,because I love butterflies and it gave me an opportunity to use a  stamp that a friend gave me ages ago , that I have not used in a very long time.

The print paper I used  is  from the Laughing Lola paper pack from CTMH. I heat embossed the butterfly, and the Happy Birthday. I mounted both on Gypsy, and then on Black, and popped them up with dimensionals to make them stand out. The green  strip is a piece of cardstock called  Pear, and the ribbon is 3/4" white grosgrain. The little dots are pale green water dots from Miriam's Crafting Supplies.The Happy Birthday is from a CTMH stamp set called Joyful Birthday.
Heat Embossing is a lot of fun, and really helps add dimension to any project. I hope you give it a try, and don't forget to make good use of all you little bits and pieces.


  1. love your butterfly and the colours with the laughing lola. great paper pack! makes super cute cards :)

  2. Love the butterfly and how you matted the sentiment and image twice, gives it a really awesome pop.
