Bless Your Heart

I recently picked up a couple of new (to me) 6x6 paper pads from Crate Paper (GORGEOUS) and the brand new Stitched Butterflies Dies from Lil' Inker (ADORABLE)!

Challenge #7 at The Card Concept is to use a butterfly, so it's the perfect opportunity to put a couple of those new dies to use! And I also used this fabulous sketch from Seize The Sketch #17:

Here's my creation:

I layered the two smallest stitched butterflies and then looped some button twine around them (just like you'd loop your twine through a tag)! I LOVE how that worked out---and so simple too! The sentiment is from Heart Squared by Papertrey Ink. It's extra special to me because my grandma says it all the time! I am definitely going to make her a set of notecards using this sentiment----she will get a total kick out of that for sure!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Hope you have an amazing weekend!

Lisa, what gorgeous cards you create, which I've discovered in coming over to thank you for your sweet comment on my blog! Your butterflies are fueling my obsession; I'll be adding them to my wish list! Your showcase of them here (love the twine - such a special touch), with the patterned papers is nothing short of gorgeous! Wow, wow and wow!! The sentiment - my grandma used to say that too! Your grandma will be thrilled when you present her with a special set of notecards!

Hi, Lisa! I just love the patterned papers you have chosen for this card - the colors are so soft and pleasing. Will have to remember that little twine trick for butterflies in the future.

My oldest son lives in Parker CO; not quite in the mountains, but I have been on weekend trips with them into those majestic hills!! I love Colorado!
