Butterfly Dreams from Papertrey Ink







Hi Everyone ~ I am back with another favorite of my Papertrey Ink collections. This one is called Butterfly Dreams and it has so many stamps in this set that you could make a mountai of cards with just this one set. As you can see I haven't been able to post much this year because of so much going on with my work, myself and my family. One thing I get angry at myself about is that all of a sudden someone has a Birthday, Baby, Wedding, etc. and I make the card/gift and forget to take a photo of it because I have to give it to the person the very next day. Recently I made a picture frame with a lovely creation in it for a friend at work...it would have been perfect for me to post it, but she had already given it to that someone that she wanted it made for. So, a lot of my not posting is my fault. Sorry bout that.

This card was made for a darling young lady at work that I have been friends with for years. She loved the color yellow and that is why I came up with the yellow theme. I cut two of the largest butterflies with a butterfly die from Papertrey and the smaller butterfly I just cut it out. I colored it with my Copic Markers and then put some "Ice Stickles" on top. I used the yellow glitter buttons from a pack I bought from Hobby Lobby on the corners and then put yellow stickles around the Spellbinders Labels Eleven with the sentiment in the middle. The ribbon and the gold pearls came from Hobby Lobby as well.

I hope you enjoy this little card...Mary, who I made the card for, just loved it. Here is wishing you all a great new week and I hope I can get back on the bandwagon and start posting more often. Thanks for stopping by !!!

Oh, Velta, the butterflies are just lovely, and I have a fondness for a soft yellow like this. Such a pretty ribbon choice, too. As many cards as I make, it seems like I'm always scrambling at the last minute, too. Sometimes taking the photo is the longest part of the whole process! Such is the life of a working girl, righ?

Hello there, my sweet friend! It is so good to see you posting again. I love the beautiful butterflies, and the color yellow sure brightens up this card. I know your friend just loved it, so soft and elegant. I do understand about the posting, I have been slacking myself. Take care, looking forward to your next post.

Elly said...

Velta, thank you so much for your sweet, sweet comment. I'm blushing now ;-)
I would love it, if we could craft together for a day ( or two LOL), but unfortunately the distance between us is a little bit too big.
It's a pity, don't you think?It would have been very nice!

Hugs, Elly
ps; love your butterflies.
