Flight of the Butterfly


My friend Tonya was nice enough to let me borrow her Flight of the Butterfly set this week (thanks Tonya)! These are 2 very simple little cards I made yesterday. The first card is 4 1/4" square. I like the clean, simplicity of it. It's funny, but I thought I would like the larger butterflies and swirly sentiments, but so far, I'm just loving that little butterfly and the simple thank you sentiment.
Riding Hood Red, Kiwi Kiss & Bella Rose DP just seemed like the perfect companions for this stamp set. Do you ever look at a particular stamp set and instantly think of a color combo? I do. For this set, I could only see the butterfly in Riding Hood Red. Which reminds me...what did we ever do without those new in-colors? I love them...every single one of them, but Riding Hood Red & Pink Pirouette are my 2 favorites (this week anyway!).
Here's the other card I made, it's note card sized, 3 3/4 x 4" ~

Seems like I can always use a thank you note. Since these were so quick and simple, I may make a few more... just to keep on hand. thanks Tonya for letting me play with the set, always fun to try something new :) !!!

That's it for today...hope you're having a good week, thanks for stopping by!
