A fluttery butterfly for the Stamp With Us recipe challenge

And it's Sunday again already - where does the week go, lol. So, today's challenge over at Stamp With Us is a recipe. We can use:
  • 3 patterned papers
  • 3 brads
  • 3 coloured cards
  • 3 different stamps
Wow - that's a toughie. Well I decided to use what is sure to become a favourite stamp set of mine - the brand new Flight of the Butterfly:

Isn't this just a gorgeous set? And I got the butterfly punch to match as well.

Stamp sets: Flight of the Butterfly, Fresh Cuts
Cardstock: Cameo Coral, Green Galore, Blush Blossom
Ink: Green Galore, Tempting Turquoise
DSP: Kaleidoscope
Brads: Earth Elements
Punches: Butterfly

I just used one of the "Flight" butterfly stamps, one of the sentiments from the same set (minus the "unknown" on the end so that it fits the layout better) and the leaf from Fresh Cuts = 3 different stamps. I cut the flowers from one sheet of Kaleidoscope, punched the butterfly from another sheet (getting the circles centred within the wings) and cut a strip from another sheet as my top border = 3 papers. 3 Earth Elements brads were used to complete the flowers and I used only 3 coloured cards as shown in the recipe. So, nothing more or less than the recipe allows.

Don't forget that today is the first day of the Stamp With Us online class. It's not too late to join if you haven't signed up yet. Classes are great fun and great value, I can't wait to see the projects we get this time.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
