I LOVE- LOVE- LOVE- LOVE- LOVE- butterflies! In case you didn’t realize that already! If I had a tattoo it would be a butterfly. I just love them so much it ridiculous!

So for the CC112 Think Pink I did this card. My friend Debbi, gave me this gorgeous butterfly embossed shimmery paper, so I had to use it on the next two projects.

Unfortunately this is a sympathy card for a family member. I always think butterflies when I do a sympathy card because they are so beautiful, and the signify NEW BEGINNINGS!

This card was inspired by my friend Nichole. She had a pretty, sparkly butterfly on the butt of her jeans! I was so inspired to make something after seeing that, so this is what I did.

Beautiful Butterfly


I embossed the butterfly (WINGED THINGS retired by SU!) in gold EP, on vellum cardstock. I used versamagic dew drops, and a cool felt pen to color in the butterfly. I then cut it out, and propped it onto a Prima Daisy.

Tha card base was done using Bazzil cardstock. I get a assortment pack when I buy that was I get a little of each color. I tied around some pink organdy ribbon, and tiffany fiber (a must have both by SU!) I stamped the sentiment in gold encore ink.

I layered the butterfly vellum onto brushed gold cardstock. The attached to card base. Attached the daisy, and I was done. I hope she likes my card.

Sentiment reads

The butterfly counts no the months

(inside) but the moments and has time enough.

Doesn’t it just give you goose bumps? It reminds me that every moment counts. No matter how long someone lives, it the memories that are made during that time that will make it last forever. As long as you have your moments your time is eternal.

Granted I have never (thankfully) lost anyone close to me so Im sure that sentiment would quickly be trashed-

And onto the next item!

I also got the stickers from Debbi-and we all have a deal must use our stuff this week!

So, I got this lantern (as well as 8 others) at the Target dollar spot!

 lantern Sorry I just cant get a decent photo of it any larger. It takes up my entire screen! Just click it, and it should show all the details!

HELLO! Nice deal! Its suppose to be a hanging tea light holder. I am using mine for decoration in my bathroom! LOL!

I love the stickers by K & Co. as well. Purple is my favorite color, and the rhinstone on the butterfly head is my birthstone! Happy Birthday to me!

So this lantern has glasspanel, I put my cardstock in front of the panel so IF I did want to burn a small tea light I could.

The ribbon is rainbow organdy ribbon from Michaels.

No stamping! But I love it!
