Thinking of You and Shades of Blue

Hello and Happy Saturday!  I hope your day was great and you found some crafty time, as for me...I found some time to create a card featuring shades of Blue, Vines, Florals and Butterflies.

My card features a gorgeous stamped and die cut Butterfly from the Gina K. Designs "Beautiful Butterflies" stamp and coordinating die sets.  After heat embossing the butterflies, I added color with diluted Distress Inks.  I dry embossed an uneven snippet of card with my Brand New "Enchanting Vines" 3-D embossing folder by Altenew and lightly added Faded Jeans Distress Inks to bring out the Vine pattern even more.  

The Florals are dimensional die cuts, with 2 layers popped on foam pads along with the Butterfly wing tips.  The sentiment is from the "Beautiful Butterflies" stamp set and lastly, I added faux white pearls as a butterfly trail.  

Until next time, Happy Crafting!
