I was asked to make a card for a 9 year old girl and the theme was butterflies. I had just received my stamps from Verve Visual called Fluttering By, so this was the ideal stamp set to use. I stamped the polka dot butterflies onto pink dp and then cut them out. I then stamped the plain butterflies onto white card and added the polka dot butterflies over the top, leaving the wings 3D (as you can hopefully see in the second pic). The two smaller butterflies are also from Verve Visual from a set called Petals & Stems. These sets are clear and a dream to use. The dp is by Rob & Bob and I used my pc to create the sentiment. The black card is bazzill bling which has a lovely sheen to it. A final touch was the Papermania adhesive stones on the butterflies bodies. I don't usually gush about my cards but I was really pleased with how this card turned out and may have to make a few more of them. If you've stayed with me throughout this very long post - congratulations ;) Thanks for looking.
