A fine day for stamping...

Sorry for my long hiatus! I figured it's time to get back to making some cards and posting them again!
It's snowing out today if you can believe it! :)  I perfect day for stamping and card making!

Quite some time ago I saw a beautiful stamped butterfly card that is similar to the card I created here today. The original creator used a stamped butterfly and the same lace ribbon. I saved the image but forgot where I got it from (maybe from splitcoast stampers?). So I cased this card after that card, sorry I can't remember who originally created it.

I made this card for my Granddaughter Alexis. It's her 10th birthday, and since she loves butterflies, I wanted to make a butterfly birthday card. I picked some pretty designer papers from the "Hey Girl" 6x6 paper pad from Basic Grey. Such pretty colors, very girly.

Here is a close up.  I love the butterfly die I used. It's two dies made to layer/work together.  Pretty. I used some old lace ribbon and some pretty peach Stampin Up! ribbon. I LOVE that ribbon from the "In Color" collection. I love the color line too!
Thanks for stopping by!
