Flight of the Butterfly

Here is another card I offered as an extra at my stamp-a-stack event last weekend.  I love butterflies, and the cute little butterflies in Papillon Potpourri are the ones I chose for this card.  I also used the Elegant Bouquet embossing folder.  The sentiment is from a retired stamp set, but I had made and cut the card before I realized it.  I went ahead and used it, but took a spare stamp in case someone wanted a current stamp.  This card is a very simple and quick card and was meant to be simple for the gals who finished early and wanted to do a little something extra. 

What I like most about this stamp set is not only the pretty butterflies, but the Elegant Butterfly punch that goes with it.  I can have them fluttering on my page and didn't have to spend a lot of time fussy cuttting each one.  Don't you love when there are dies and punches to make your job so much easier and more fun? 

Well I am into reading a book that takes me back several centuries during the time of kings, knights and hardships -- no fun living in cold castles with no showers, bathrooms, or craft rooms with Big Shots or stamps.  Oh how did they live back then.  So I am going to go back to my book now.  Thanks for visiting, and I hope you come back to visit me again soon.

Happy Crafting.................
