Hi everybody! Happy Tuesday! And speaking of Tuesday, have you checked out Flourishes' Timeless Tuesday challenge today? The theme is butterflies!! Now, even if you don't have a Flourishes stamp you can still play along because I don't know a card maker out there that doesn't have a stash of butterflies somewhere....am I right? :) Anyways, you can find out all of the details here. I used a few Flourishes stamp sets for this card. I started with my card base, which is made from Spellbinders Timeless Rectangle nesties.....they have always reminded me of a butterfly! Next, I stamped my images, colored with copics, used my trusty gold leaf pen again and assembled all of my layers. I did stamp the butterfly twice so I could cut out a wing and pop it up. You can see more details and pictures by checking out my blog here. Anyways, that's about it for today. Hope everyone has a great afternoon! :)

Oh Sistah..... I imagine over at Flourishes they are smiling and saying, "yeah, she's gooood"! And I know we a saying it! Girl, this is like a paper quilt, wrapped in a hug. Love every inch. Oh, and that gold leaf pen, is it "out" yet? You & Kush may need another shopping day! Lymi

Hey, Katie girl, sorry I am just catching up here, but this card just took my breath away when I spied it!! Everything from the SB rectangle base to the gold leafing on your frame and oval, and that drop dead gorgeous DP - AND, you captured my heart with this "soft as a summer breeze" coloring. The butterfly looks amazing and that sweet strip of ribbon with the buttons just finishes it off so sweetly!
This card would make even a cloudy day feel wonderful!!
Hugs, my sweet friend!!
