Butterflies & Stitching

Hello!  What a fabulous day, I am happy to be in a new month, even if it is April Fool's Day!  Refresh, renew, rebirth......bring on Spring!

Today's card was made for the Challenges at Stamp TV, Stitch It Up!, hosted by my dear friend Sharyn Polesel, Simon Says Monday, Pastels and Simon Says Wednesday, Birthday--they are celebrating their 6th Birthday!!!

I whipped out my Janome Mini Sewing Machine for this Challenge, I had forgotten how much fun it is to sew on cards.....I can not sew anything else that's for sure!  The Designer Paper is The Coral Couture by DCWV.  I stitched 2 lines on the bottom panel and I stitched a piece of Vellum overlay on top of the Martha Stewart Butterfly Border Punch.  I  added 2 'brass' brads, one is under the seam binding ribbon, which was colored with a Copic Marker. 


Corner Tabs, Gold & Pearl Button, thin Jute Twine for accents.  Hand cut tag stamped with a Happy Birthday sentiment from the Gina K Designs set, Block Greetings in Bermuda Bay ink and a small butterfly on the inside from Stamp It Big.
Thank you so much for stopping by!


  1. I love this BIG (Sharyn Polesel) bow. She does it like no other. Beautiful button that you used to secure it, but I also love how you set it off with the gold button on the other side. Cute little tag, it adds as much to this card.

  2. Beautiful! I LOVE your bow, and that gold and pearl button is gorgeous with i!

  3. Such a lovely birthday card. The layers and colors are fabulous. Thank you so much for sharing with us at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. :)
