Butterfly Stripes

I took a little 'me' time this evening to create a card for a couple of challenges that are going on! I have been so busy with THIS that I haven't had much time to 'play'!

So I took an hour out after tea and made this card ...

The current challenge over on A Passion for Papertrey is to incorporate stripes into your project. Stripes are still on trend and so I thought about how I could incorporate them into a card along with a butterfly. It had to be a butterfly because the Papertrey Ink Anniversary Celebration is still going on and todays challenge is to incorporate a butterfly into your project! 

So to save me some time I decided to incorporate both challenges into one card! I used PTI's Faux Ribbon stamp set to create the stripes using Hawaiian Shores, Raspberry Fizz & Aqua Mist Ink. The Sentiment from Faux Ribbon is stamped using Stampin' Up! Basic Grey. 

I then cut the Butterfly Dreams butterfly from Basic Grey CS and stamped one of the butterflies from Butterfly Dreams stamp set in Fresh Snow Ink. A little bit of bling added to the butterfly which is mounted on foam pads and I was done! 

I'm really pleased how this turned out! 

Be sure to check out both the challenges and also THIS BLOG for all the info on what I've been up to! LOL!

Thanks for stopping by!
