Butterfly Crazy

Lately I've been finding it hard to make a card NOT using Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps New Beginnings set!  The three butterflies in various sizes with coordinating dies are so easy to use, not to mention such a variety of sentiments which can be mixed and matched.
For today's card I lightly sponged a cream shimmer card base with Ranger Distress Scattered Straw ink. I used SNSS's Lacey Eyelet border die, which is cut in half so that there's just a hint of lace peeking out behind the dp strip.
In order to give the twine more definition against the dp, I stretched it across a thin strip of cream card.  The finishing touches are some green flourishes and a rich red rose.
Wishing you a great weekend, hopefully including a little bit of crafty time!
Supplies include:
Cosmo Cricket dp
Stampin Up Lucky Limeade cardstock
Marianne Design Creatables flourishes die
Rose (Wild Orchid Crafts)
SU Real Red ink
Ranger Distress Scattered Straw ink

Bridget, I think Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps make the most beautiful butterfly images. You showcase them so well with your impeccable designs. Truly a treat for our eyes.
