Fifth Avenue Butterfly

Phew! After my internet being sluggish and then down most of the day I am finally able to post something today!

I'm excited to share this card with you because it shows off several new items including the new Urban Oasis DSP, the beautiful stamp set Fifth Avenue Floral, and the new Beautiful Butterfly Bigz die for the Big Shot!!

To highlight the sentiment in the center of the card I stamped it first, then punched a wide oval out of scrap paper and temporarily adhered it to the Pink Pirouette paper right over the sentiment. Then I randomly stamped the images from Fifth Avenue Floral in Black, Purely Pomegranate and Pink Pirouette. Before removing the scrap paper I sponged around it with Pink Pirouette.

This is a neat way to add some dimension with only one layer. The double stitched ribbon is the retired Pomegranate, and the brads are basic black. The wire I added last for antenna is ancient, and happens to be a perfect match to the Pomegranate!

Thanks for stopping by! I'll be volunteering in the morning tomorrow but will hopefully be able to stamp and post later in the day since I got most of my cleaning and laundry done today (thanks to no internet playing!).
