Just a little note

Here is a new card that I made with my lovely new PaperTreyInk set. This card measures 3 1/2 x 3 1/2. These little guys seemed prettier when they were bigger, so I made the card base smaller.

The base of the card is Taken with Teal stamped randomly with some of the PaperTreyInk little stamps. Over this, I mounted a piece of Apricot Appeal cardstock that was stamped with the Paisley Print BG. The butterflies were stamped with colorbox chalk inks on Very Vanilla cardstock and then cut out with my paper snips. I then took some Hero Arts rhinestones and used them to create the bodies.

I mounted the butterflies on the card with some sticky strip run down their bodies. It is sticky enough to make sure they stay adhered to the card and still allow the wings to be free.

To finish up the card, I doodled a frame around the edge and added some more rhinestones in the corners. The butterflies trails were hand pierced with my paper piercer and then I used my white Signo gel pen to lighten them up so they are more visable. The sentiment is Paper Tray (also from P.T.I.) stamped in Basic Black. Hope you all had a fabulous Thursday!
