Butterfly Bling


The colors for this weeks KWerner color challenge remind me of V-day and chocolates, so I tried to stay away from that. I just received a bag of heavenly goodness from an SU! workshop so I had to play with my new "Toys" - specifically the mat pack, a paper piercing tool, and the Classy Brass template that coordinates with the Priceless stamp set. So here's my take on this week's challenge -


It's hard to tell, but I stamped the butterflies on Whisper White cardstock with Pretty in Pink and Close to Cocoa inks and then dry embossed them with the Classy Brass template. I also used the guide holes on the template to paper pierce the antennae of the butterflies. I stamped the swirlys in chocolate chip ink on Close to Cocoa cardstock and then used a white gel pen to highlight the dots on the swirls. Finally, I added some bling to my butterflies, the card, and even one little teeny tiny one on the sentiment.
