Fluttering over to GDP#030

Hi, Stampers!

I had great fun stamping with a good friend yesterday.  There's something about stamping with others that makes me more creative.  Is that the way it is with you?

One of the cards I completed is for this week's GDP sketch challenge by Teneale Williams.  It's a very simple sketch with lots of possibilities.  Here's what I came up with:

And here is the GDP banner:

Since I'm not a Clean and Simple kind of gal, I was tempted to add much more to my card design.  I really had to rein myself in.  The focus of the card is on the top half for a reason, so I decided to leave the bottom blank.  

I cut the butterfly using one of the dies from the Bold Butterfly die set.  I cut a duplicate one out of some leftover Botanical Gardens Designer Vellum Stack.  The colored strip is a combination of colors I sprayed at random.  The rhinestones showed the butterfly's flight path and fulfilled the bottom element of the sketch. The sentiment is from the Happy Home stamp set and is embossed in white.

Thanks for stopping by today! I love comments so please leave one below.

Happy stamping!
