Yellow Butterfly

I am up north again this weekend and saw the most beautiful butterfly, a very pale creamy yellow.  I tried to capture it in paper and ink, but with my limited supplies my butterfly is a pale comparison.  But I am happy with the resulting card.  I used the sketch from Stamp Ink Paper Challenge.

My card base is Tip Top Taupe with a sweet sentiment stamped in black in the bottom corner.  The butterfly is stamped in a variety of yellows and accented in Tip Top Taupe.  I stamped a pale yellow border (tough to see in this picture) along the left edge of Whisper White.  The circle was cut and then the remaining panel embossed with the Big Shot.  I only had gold bakers twine with me, so I did a little modification.  I removed the gold thread (I'm sure that will show up on another project soon) and ran the twine across a yellow stamp, a wrap around the embossed panel and a quick bow with some tassels. Simple but sweet.






Happy Stamping,
Dana
