Delicate Butterfly

I really love how delicate this butterfly is, and don't you just love pink and gray combo of colors! It almost looks red here but it is pink :)  I believe this corner die was meant to be use the opposite way where the corner is cut from a whole piece of paper but I wondered how it would look used this way and I think I like it this way. I hope you can see the pretty embossing it has on it too!


Poppystamps -- Clara Corner die
Memory box -- Surely stitched circle  and Leavenworth Butterfly dies
Lilybee designs -- Head over heels paper

Hope you enjoyed the long weekend and now it is once again time for all the kids to go back to school, although here they have been back for a couple weeks now.  It is amazing how much more traffic there is once school starts up again.

Have a wonderful remainder of the week!
Thanks for taking the time out of your busy schedule to stop by,

Connie

Hi Connie, what a beautiful card. I have always loved pink and gray together. The way you did the corner is gorgeous. I've noticed more traffic too. wishing you a beautiful week and Happy September. xo

I always love pink and gray, and that tiny gingham pattern is so cute! I've seen that corner die cut like this before, so I don't know which way is right. It looks pretty no matter what. I also like the circle/string die. I think I have that die cut in a package Sherri sent me. It's such a cute way to add a sentiment.
