Thinking Of You Butterfly Card

Happy Friday everyone! I hope you are as glad to see the end of the week as I am! Today I'm sharing a card I made with some of my favorite designs and colors. I am a sucker for this gorgeous apple green paired with black and white. As a matter of fact, my craft room is this color combination. I will post pictures of my room one day soon, I just need to clean it first! I was also experimenting a technique with this card. I saw somewhere online where another card maker made a frame from her border punches by mitering the edges. I FINALLY figured out how to miter them correctly, but it didn't line up so well. If you look close, the scalloped frame of my focal image is done this way. It's not perfect, but hey, it's a handmade card and the little imperfections are what make hand crafted goods so unique.

Here is the supply list:
Card Stock- Bazzill Basics
Damask Paper- GCD Studios
Polka Dot Paper- Heidi Swapp
Stamp- Anna Griffin
Green Pearls- Dollar Bin at Micheals  (LOVE THESE!)
Scallop Border Punch- EK Success
Large Scallop Border Die- Taylored Expressions

I'm linking up this card to the following challenges:
Sketch And Stash 53 (sketch)
Top Tip Tuesday (add a sentiment)

Have an awesome weekend and thanks for stopping by!

    Great idea with the corners of the edge punch - I don't try to match mine - I just use a HUGE button or like to cover the mismatch ;)
