Beautiful Butterfly

In between cleaning and sorting, I took time out to have a cup of coffee and make a card for a couple of my favorite challenges, CAS(E) this Sketch and The Paper Players.  I stamped the background image from the You've Got This stamp set then, punched 1" squares.  Although it's hard to see in the photo, the Pool Party layer of the butterfly is from the Cherry On Top Designer Series Paper.  There are little white lines and dots that are just not showing up in the photo.  I have totally fallen in love with those Regals Candy Dots.  Looks like I need to put more of them on my next order as well as the other colors that are available.

Now it's time for me to head out to pick up my two grandsons who are coming for a visit today.  They are so busy with summer baseball, that I don't get to spend a lot of time with them.  It's going to be a fun afternoon!


Stamp Sets:  Lovely Amazing You, You've Got This; Inks: Island Indigo, Real Red; Card Stock:  Cherry On Top Designer Series Paper Stack, Island Indigo, Thick Whisper White, Whisper White; Accessories & Tools:  Bold Butterfly Framelits Dies, Butterflies Thinlits Dies, 1" Square Punch, Island Indigo Regals Candy Dots, Multipurpose Liquid Glue, SNAIL Adhesive, Dimensionals, Stampin' Trimmer, Bit Shot Die-Cutting Machine
