Manchester Butterfly

As promised here is another card with the Manchester color combo (see yesterday's post if you have no idea what I'm referring to).
The chipboard frame is leftover from one of the Convention projects we did (the bookmark) and I was inspired by FLmommyof2's resourceful use of this piece. Her card is here. While our cards are very different, you can see why I loved how she used the chipboard. I left mine natural and stamped on it with the butterfly with flowered wings. If you look carefully you'll see tiny versamark butterflies on the Baha Breeze background paper. The brads are the same color as the ink, Always Artichoke and the taffeta ribbon is kraft which is what the chipboard comes in... isn't it nice to have all the matching accessories to our ink and cardstock?! Anyway, I hope you like this and it inspires you to take a look at those "leftover" pieces of chipboard to see how you can recycle too! Thanks for stopping by again!

SU! Supplies
Stamps: Flight of the Butterfly
Cardstock: Baha Breeze, Always Artichoke, Very Vanilla
Ink: Always Artichoke, Baha Breeze, Versamark
Accessories: chipboard, kraft taffeta ribbon, scallop border punch, Always Artichoke brads (in the Rich Regals collection)
