Butterfly Wishes w/ Paper Players #184

Good Monday morning!  I am keeping my fingers crossed for a wonderful week with no madness!!  I finished up my card last night for the sketch over at The Paper Players, and I had so much fun with it.  For me this is a simple sketch.  It was kinda hard at first, cause I love layers, but I was good and added no main layers to the card base at all.  I can't wait to here what you think!

I started out using Basic Birthday DSP for my banners and finished it off with a punched butterfly and or course added some matching twine and a cute button.  I love how Stampin' Up! makes it so easy to coordinate items together!  They are AWESOME like that!!

I had a layer already cut for the inside, but needed a small circle for the outside, so I cut it out in the lower corner but instead of getting a new whole piece, I still used it and just added a butterfly to the center.  I added a matching banner as well as two small ones at the top.  I just love the mini banner punch in the Sale-a-Bration brochure.  You can earn it for FREE with any $50 order!  Hurry though, cause this special offer ends March 31, 2014.

Love this, Cynthia! Love the color combo, the doily, butterfly, everything! And the inside of the card is just as beautiful. Thanks for playing along with us this week at The Paper Players!

Oh my goodness, the inside is beautiful enough to be a card on it's own! Lovely take on the sketch with all the layers and textures. I really like the way you've used the small banner punch horizontally ...thank you for joining us at The Paper Players!
