Bold Butterfly GIU Day 4

 Hello Friends

 Can you believe it is Thursday already? Where did the week go? I wanted to take a moment to say a big thank you for all of your sweet comments. Also a big welcome to my new followers :) I am honored that your are choosing to follow me in blog land.

Now on to my cards :) If you did not know already I love butterflies. They are so pretty and delicate. I love this big bold butterfly stamp from Donna Downey. I made two different cards with it using white embossing powder. The top one I used with vellum and fussy cut my butterfly out. The second card I stamped directly on to kraft card and kept it pretty simple.


I really love kraft and white together it looks so clean and pretty. I added some turquoise rhinestones to finish off the cards.

I can't believe tomorrow is my last day of GIU the week has gone so fast. Thanks so much for stopping by I will see you all tomorrow.
