Sizzlet Butterflies

I saw this card on Pinterest and linked up to the web site where it originated from. The original card was not made using Stampin' Up! products so this was a bigger challenge for me.  Stampin' Up! didn't have a butterfly punch that would allow me to make the smaller butterflies in the center of the white card stock and then add colored card stock behind it.  So I just used the Sizzlet and punched out some butterflies using decorative paper.  Each butterfly was done using different designs but the didn't show up very well in the photo.  Could be due to the texture but probably the lighting and user error!!!  

In spite of the butterflies colors I think the card turned out rather well.  If I make another one I will opt to use a different color.  Something that will show up more.  Maybe Melon Mambo or Pumpkin Pie. Something bright but not as soft as the Daffodil Delight.  But all in all I think it's a pretty card and in person the butterflies look SO much better.  It's a very easy card to make and would be a great Stamp-A-Stack card!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,

Gorgeous! I love this.
Oh, how elegant this would be done in just black and white. Oh, the possibilities.

I love how three of the butterflies are highlighted and one is "flying" off. Great card.
