Butterflies are Coming

It was a not-so-wild weekend in Las Vegas. We arrived at 9:30 in the morning on Saturday and we immediately hit the gambling tables. I'm not a big gambler; so, I felt quite proud that from a $10 deposit into the video machine, I cashed out with $18. It was time for lunch!

I'm lately finding myself drawn to butterflies and fish. When I returned home yesterday afternoon, I dug out some butterfly dies and started in.

Die cut butterfly frame on white linen card stock with Stick It! double-sided adhesive sheet behind the card stock; embossed with embossing folder. Fit a piece of decorated paper underneath the frame and adhered together; trimmed where needed.

On an A6 card base, attached decorative lace border die (2 pieces overlapping). The butterfly frame die cut was adhered to the base card with fun foam.

Butterfly confetti was attached with mini glue dots.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. I'm on my way to Coeur d'Alene, Idaho for my husband's mid-year meeting. It's a beautiful resort but the weather isn't going to be cooperating very much. I'll be back on Friday. so I'll see you then if not before!
