Butterfly Collector

Hello everyone!
Today I have a real quick card I made to honor this week's featured stamper on SCS... Dara was the honored stamper this week and I have had the joy of meeting Dara in person a few times, and just had to play along.  Here is her card that I cased.  I used Layers of Color Butterfly Collector for my butterfly and colored it with Copics.  For my background, I stamped the flourish from Nature Walk over the BasicGrey graph paper.  The base of the card is a textured yellow from my stash, and I pierced the corners with the sun ray corner template by Ornare.  I matted with Old Olive and added some ZVA Creative Pearls.  You can't see it in the photo, but the butterfly is embossed with UTEE and popped up.  Also you can't see in the photo but the ribbon is really a pretty double sided green on one side/ aqua on the other, which picks up the aqua in the butterfly.   It is a super quick card but I had fun with it and it's nice to have one I can actually mail in a regular A2 envelope! LOL!

within the past four months, I've went from not caring too much for butterflies to LOVING them!! Your card is definitely one of the reasons for the change :) I put back a MS butterfly punch yesterday, and I'm kicking myself for it now...guess I'll be making a trip to Michael's soon
