Dream in Beauty

One of the New stamps from Heartfelt Creations is Dream in Beauty. I stamped it twice on white card stock, then using the Botanical Wings die cut the Butterfly out of one print and adhered it's body to the other print.  I colored the images with Copic markers, along with a little sparkly paint to make the butterfly twinkle.  I added three Water Dew Drops from The Robin's Nest, and a strip of tiny hot pink rhinestones to make the image sparkle.  I also added two tiny Joy! Foam Pads Small under the two wings to help them pop-up just a bit.

I then mounted the butterfly image to a sheet of So . . .Silk Fabulous Purple stock before adding it to my lavender card base.  I completed my card by adding a strip of cotton lace to the top and bottom of the card to add texture and dimension.

I love the butterfly!  It is a flying flower, and to me, symbolizes Spring and new growth. I plant special seeds in my garden each year whose flowers attract the butterflies.  Happy Spring to all, I hope your gardens flourish this year.



  1. Oh this is soooooo lovely! From the gorgeous butterfly to the lacy strips, this is so chic and amazing. I would love to take a walk in your garden during the summertime to see all the butterflies! I bet that would be amazing. Thanks so much for the crafty follow over at my blog. I'll definitely be returning the favor!

  2. Love your card! It is so pretty! Also your comment about butterflies being flying flowers is wonderful... that's what they are! I always plant for the butterflies too!
