Butterflies for Mandy

She is a genuinely wonderful teammate and a crafty person herself. This is a thank-you to her for the crafty birthday basket she put together for me.

This is also for challenges at Flutter by Wednesday (anything goes) Just Us Girls (dry embossing) and would have been for the Sweet Sunday Sketch, except I'm late to that dance. Oh, well.

The DP is from the DCWV Garden Party stack that I found in my birthday basket. :) I used a CB folder to do the backgrounds for the butterflies. Butterflies were cut with my Cricut (Indie Art). Pearls were in the stash.

Here's a somewhat better picture of the embossing:

Anyway, thank you so much for stopping by! I  hope you're enjoying your holiday! Please leave a comment - I learn a lot from them!


  1. Ohh pretty! I live those Indie butterflies and they look great on the embossed squares. Thanks so much for joining in at Just Us Girls this week!

  2. Love This! I think sometimes we forget that shoestring budgets can be best. I sometimes find myself wanting to 'create' like everyone else and then realize I need to just be me. Great job on proving that is the best way! Patty

  3. What a fun card, and such lovely butterflies! Thanks so much for joing us for Flutter By Wednesday! :)

  4. very pretty, gorgeous butterflies...have a wonderful week!
