Butterfly Chase

It's a hot, humid day outside today, and I'm grateful for the cool comfort of being indoors.  You may have noticed that I love my Joy Crafts butterfly die and I've used it once again on today's card.

Recently, I picked up a 6x6 paper pad of Prima's Printery papers.  I love the aged look of them.  This card was so easy to make.  It began with a base of black cardstock and the butterfly edge inked with tea dye Distress Ink.  The bow was made with tea-stained twill from Melissa Phillips.  I made the tag from another sheet of the Printery paper and attached a Recollections butterfly and pearls to dress it up.  Prima flowers were tucked under the tag and a couple of vintage buttons attached to the upper right corner.

If you click on each photo, you can view them in a larger size.  When I saw the words "Butterfly Chase" on this paper, I knew I had to pair it with that die and the jeweled butterfly.  Some things just seem to come so easily together, and I hope you like this.

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by!  I do enjoy reading your sweet comments.  Have a wonderful week!
