{2} Butterflies and Blossom

I discovered a new love for Pretty in Pink (by Stampin' Up) when I made this card. You see, when I first started using SU color families I bought the multi pack for each family. As time went on, I had to purchase full packs for many colors as I depleted the 3 that came in the original multi-pack. Somehow I still have the original PiP 3, sad but true. However, after making this card I may have to order a full package. How great does this simply gorgeous card look? It showcases the new Little Paper Shop set 'Butterflies and Blossoms'.

I stamped the one of the two funky butterflies from this set in PiP randomly. Then I took one of the MANY sentiments from the set to write 'Thankful for You' in PiP on White CS. I punched it out with my 1 3/8 circle punch along with punching a piece of Bashful Blue CS with the scallop circle. Finally, I tied a ribbon around the edge and then I had this beauty. Ok, so I like this card. Maybe too much. Maybe I'll send it. Maybe I won't. Story of my stamping life. Didn't I get into this to SEND homemade goodies? Who knows.

Ok, enough ranting! Tonight at midnight is the NEW release from LPS!!! ENJOY and let me know what you buy!

I wish I could make cards like you do. I am not a real lover of card making, just scrapbooking. But I wish I were, it is soooooo pretty!
