Today I had a bead class for a few hours. I learned a new technique and now I have another new project to finish. : ) I am loving this but it is definitely hard to squeeze in all the extra hours to finish the pieces. I have to remember to take pictures and share my finished projects with you. Chris and I also went to our storage unit today to try and clean some more out because there is a neighborhood garage sale next weekend. Hopefully we can empty that storage unit soon. We have had it for far to long. Tonight I decided to do a card again. A butterfly idea popped into my head today and I wanted to try and see what I could make of it. I actually wasn't going to make the butterfly into a card but I need more time to work on the other idea/project. Here is butterfly #61.
I was going for a vintage look with this one. I distressed the butterflies with Crumb Cake and Basic Black inks. I used the Illuminate Glimmer Watermark Stampin' Pad again as well on the background. I have a tiny safety pin from the Vintage Trinkets. I used the Jewelry Tag punch to punch a little greeting from the Tiny Tags Stamp Set.

One more view for you.
Simple, single layer card for you. I will probably step this one up at some time as well. I really like the look of the designer series paper, especially when I distress it with a little ink. It makes a great simple card. I hope you enjoyed today's butterfly. Thanks for stopping by!
