Butterfly Love

Hello fellow bloggers,
Summer is busting out all over, here in South Texas.  The temperature is near 100 degrees, and the humidity is close to 100% which makes for sweltering days!  I was outdoors for just a few moments this evening, and saw a beautiful butterfly dancing across my one flowering geranium plant, and I thought about this beautiful card I made over the weekend.

It was very easy to assemble, just a red metallic card base with a strip of beige embossed scrapbook paper from the Mariposa paper line glued across the side. I used my 3cornered decorative corner punch from Fiskers to punch the four corners of the strip.  I then taped and tied a length of red gingham ribbon around the front flap of the card.  The bracketed embellishment was cut from another page of the same Mariposa paper pack and pop-dotted to the top left corner. To complete the front of the card, I stamped the sentiment " I love you more than . . . " which is an AMuse artstamp in the lower right corner.

Butterflies and flowers are a beautiful sign of summer. I hope this card has inspired you to get outdoors and have some fun this summer, but if it is as hot where you live, as it is here where I do, get out your stamps and ink and printed papers and make a few wonderful cards to brighten your day!  Have fun, and I'll talk to you again soon.
