Butterfly Wishes

Hi friends! I've been on a coffee card making roll lately. When I was done with yesterday's card, I sat down to clean up, then decided to make the scraps on my desk into another card. Tomorrow's the final day to link up to the Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop and I'm on a mission to have a card for each day of the hop. Almost there! {grin}

To begin the card, I layered the four scraps of designer paper, inking them up with seedless preserves and peacock feathers distress inks to give them a little depth. Next I layered on the flower mug and additional flower from Living on Coffee, which had been previously stamped, colored and cut out.  I embossed the birthday sentiment on a vellum circle and tucked it in, then found a butterfly in my stash that seemed to work with the color combo.

I wanted to keep the background white, but it needed a little something more, so I pulled out the Flourish layering stencil and some Tidy Widy Texturez and added the stenciled background.  I love the hint of elegance it brings to the card.

Well, that's it for today. Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you have a wonderful day.
