Beautiful and Bountiful Butterflies!

>> Tuesday, June 2, 2009

by : Dawn Knight

I made this card today using the DRS butterfly stamps (I used number C119 and D117). I said bountiful in my post title because DRS certainly does have tons of butterfly stamps. Main images, ribbon slides, butterfly sayings, butterfly backgrounds and even butterfly card edgers! If you love butterflies, DRS is the place for you!
And I have to give credit to my gal Heather Reppen for this sketch. I totally cased it from her and it worked out awesome for this card! So thanks, Heather... You are awesome!!!
I used my gamsol and colored pencils for the coloring and added gel and glitter pens for the details. I used the bubble easy background for the background dots and I love the dimension that it adds...not to much... just enough! I had this awesome matching ribbon and added dew drops to accent the shape of the circle. For the inside, I used the Butterfly quote from Hans Christian Anderson on the inside. It is one of my favorites and I know that you will love it too! Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope that you enjoyed the bountiful butterflies from DRS and please go and check them out!

Very pretty! It reminds me of the Monarchs we had in our garden last year -- I'm hoping they visit again this summer. Perfect summer card!!

DRS does have some gorgeous butterflies! I love the symbolism of new life, which is appropriate in all kinds of situations! Your card is beautiful! The colors are gorgeous and the layout is great for showing off their beauty!
