SUOC70 - The Theme is Butterflies!
We have another fun challenge this week over at SUO Challenges! I mean, who doesn't like butterflies, right?! They're like little flowers that can fly. And what a timely challenge, too, because the "Best of" stamp set for April was butterflies!
I went with an unusual color combination (for me, anyway), because I really wanted to make the butterfly the focus of the card. And, because thank you cards always seem to be in short supply around here, I made it a TY card. Naturally, there was a little bling added, because that's just what it had to have. There are a couple of sneak peeks on there, too, for you sharp-eyed observers!
I hope you'll join us in the challenge this week.....it's so easy to make a card with butterflies because Stampin' Up! has so many products* that are butterfly-related!
