Vellum Butterflies

I spotted this beautiful card by Deb Valder and fell in love with it!  I just knew I had to make some and now I want to make even more.  Aren't they beautiful?  I changed up the sentiment - nearly anything will work with this card and I changed up the gold by adding the Gold Sequins.  Deb used the Gold Dazzling Details.  Thanks Deb for the great card idea!  I love it!

I started with Whisper White card stock cut at 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" and scored at 4 1/4".  The Pistachio Pudding layer is 5" x 3 3/4" and the top layer of Whisper White is 4 7/8" x 3 5/8".

I stamped the two flowers from Painted Petals with Strawberry Slush and the leaves in Pistachio Pudding.

The butterfly is attached down the middle with two small glue dots and left loose everywhere else.  Add a pretty bow using Strawberry Slush Thick Baker's Twine and sequins trimmed off the Gold Sequin Trim with a dot of Liquid Tombo (aka Green Glue).

I also added Stampin' Dimensionals under the Pistachio layer to pop it up from the main card base.

Being Whisper White, there's plenty of room on the inside to write a nice letter or note to someone special or just as a simple thank you or hello.

Thank you for looking in today.  It's FRIDAY!!
