Happiness Always

A combined challenge here.   Frosted Designs is to use a RAINBOW and Cricut Cardz Challenge is to use a butterfly or a bird. The challenge at Paper Popsicles is to use cardstock so I'm entering this there as well since there is no patterned paper and I used all cardstock, embossed even! And the challenge at Polka Doodles this week is texture and dimension, which this card has with its flying butterflies and embossing.

The butterflies are MS punch....just used scraps of rainbow colors that seemed to blend in hue.  Highlighted the centers with a white Jelly roll pen..just looked better like that.  The card is embossed with Swiss Dots and the half circle is cut with pinking shears, then embossed with the hearts folder.  The butterfly stamp is Stampology and the sentiment is Stampin' Up.  Added some Heart Rain Dots around the butterfly.

Had to let you know, Sherri, that when I saw your beautiful card, I knew it would be perfect for my daughter's bridal shower. Not having the MS punch, I cut the butterflies at 1 inch on my Cricut and flew them around half a scalloped circle. My youngest daughter took the idea and used the same butterflies cut out of gum paste with the C.Cake to decorate her sister's cake. Thank you so much for sharing and helping to make Liz's shower so special. Smiles, Christine.
