Butterfly Pleasures

Happy Thursday! That means it's time for another Meet The Verve Divas challenge over on the Verve forum. This week the hostess with the mostess is Amy Sheffer, and she's got a wonderful challenge cooked up for this week. Be sure to make her earn her keep by peppering her with all those burning questions you might have. ;)

My card today fits Amy's challenge, as well as uses Anni-VERVE-sary Sketch #7. Wow! Are we already on Day 7? That means it's less than a week until the Verve release!!!! :) Woohoo! You're going to love the new sets we have for you, and you'll start seeing some sneak peeks starting Saturday on the Verve Blog.

For my card, I pulled out Fluttering By and Floral Whimsy. My inspiration was this yummy Making Memories Floral Ledger paper I've been hoarding for several months now. I stamped the Fluttering By butterfly and the small butterfly from Floral Whimsy on a piece of Classic Cream and then stamped the sentiment and the small butterfly again on another piece of Classic Cream. Then I pulled out my trusty sponge and inked the edges of both pieces with Creamy Caramel, Close to Cocoa and Chocolate Chip inks. Next I stamped the two small butterflies on the pink DP and the large butterfly on the magenta DP and trimmed out and popped them all up over the plain stamped images. I used the stamp with two little dots from Floral Whimsy to decorate one of the butterflies, and then added it to each corner on both panels, for a little decoration. The butterfly trail and a few little areas around the wings are pierced with a paper piercer and the two different mats are punched with the diamonds and treading water border punches by Fiskars. To finish, I added a chocolate taffeta bow and some pearls I colored with a Copic marker.
