Stamping Smiles Design Challenge #12

Hello everyone!! I hope you are having a fabulous Thursday.

June is flying by too fast. So far my vacation has been filled with doctor's appointments and getting things cleaned that I haven't been able to get clean while I am working. (Like washing curtains or cleaning out whole closets. Who likes to do that?)

There is a new challenge over at Stamping Smiles Designs Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge Blog. Challenge #12 is up. Can you believe we are already at 12? 

For my card, I used the last row down-Bird/Bees/Butterflies, Tag and Metals.

Here is the card I came up with:

I chose to use a Lemon Chiffon card base and rounded the bottom edge. I stamped the sentiment from Paper Trey Ink's "Bitty Butterflies" stamp set in Aqua Mist dye ink. I then layered a yellow polka dot paper that I stenciled and die cut over the background.

I used a pre-made tag from We R Memory Keepers "Crush" collection and added a metal brad in the middle of the gold flower. I then adhered a vellum butterfly that I die cut using a My Favorite Things die "Flutter of Butterflies Lace " die over the tag.

To finish the card off, I added the gold gems in the middle of the butterfly. 

This card came together so easily by just using one pre-made elements. I have so many lying around due to my scrapbooking that I have never used. Incorporating them onto cards is my new favorite thing!!

Please stop on over to Stamping Smiles Designs Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge Blog and play with us using Challenge #12. I cannot wait to see what you create!!

Have a FABULOUS day!!
