I didn't case a single card from Emily's gallery, but I tried to capture her love of butterflies with this card. Emily also likes a block layout similar to this one, so I went down both of those avenues.
The butterfly is stamped three times with Versa Mark and embossed with clear ep onto black c/s. This particular stamp has the same button shape in the center, as the buttons I've used. These buttons are dyed shells. I matched these to the DCWV corrugated c/s. They were surprisingly good matches. Heck, even the embroidery floss matches and all of this is just a lucky circumstance.
So Emily, I hope you have been enjoying your reign as Queen, you deserve the recognition and honor!

Oh my my! I couldn't be more pleased with your wonderful creation! Yes, I must admit that I am bonkers for butterflies. And I didn't realize that I leaned on this sketch so much until recently. I must venture out of my box, eh?!! Your perfectly coordinated colors, floss and shiny butterflies are exceptional. Thank you so much for playing and for adding this beauty to the gallery today! And thank you so much for your kind words, so very much appreciated.
