Card Patterns 22

I have been having some trouble thinking beyond really simple cards these days so I decided to participate in the latest Card Patterns Sketch Challenge. I wanted to use a big butterfly like the one in the sketch but I didn't have one. However, the day after I made this card, I got my SU order with my butterfly die in it! Oh well... I like the two smaller butterflies just fine.

I thought this would make a cute wedding or anniversary card! I embossed the white strip with small polka dots but you can't see it in the picture. I also used some liquid pearls at the bottom.

I had been wanting to try Dawn McVeys color suggestion... Berry Sorbet and Pure Poppy. I can check that one off my list! :-)

Hope you are having a great Tuesday!

Stamps - Fancy Flourishes (PTI), Everyday Words by Ali Edwards (Technique Tuesday)
Paper - Berry Sorbet, Stampers Select White, Black Bitty Box, Black Bitty Dots, Pure Poppy Bitty Dots (all PTI)
Ink - True Black, Pure Poppy (both PTI)
Other - Martha Stewart Butterfly Punch, SU Scallop Edge Punch, Clear Rhinestones, Pewter Liquid Pearls (Ranger), SU Texturz Plate
