Fluttering By


I wish y'all could see this pattern paper in real life because the photo just doesn't do it any justice!! Several weeks ago I hit up Archiver's with a friend and we stood in front of the My Mind's Eye - Laundry Line of papers forever. They were on sale and they were all fabulous. I love this one because the colors were perfect for Spring and every other line is covered in glitter. When I saw Mojo Challenge 74, I knew it would be the perfect layout to use my new paper on because it wouldn't cover up too much of it. The Verve butterfly is stamped out 3 times. Twice in Palette Belle Rose and once in VersaMagic Jumbo Java. I did this so I could layer my butterfly and make it look like it was just resting on the paper. Once it was all glued together, I poked some holes with my paper piercer. Turned out to be just a simple, cute Spring card.
