Techno Butterflies


This card uses the Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge #70 from TechnoStamper, and the Use It! Challenge #10. Oh, it also fits the Cuttlebug Be Inspired #32 Challenge this week!

I used a Pale Plum base, and the rest is made from scraps. The butterflies are the Cuttlebug die/embossing combo. The patterned strip on the left is from a Making Memories chipboard sticker frame. I just cut the side off the frame, which was just the right length I needed. The background is stamped in Pale Plum with the CHF Pretty Pattern background stamp. The sentiment is from a set of adhesive rub-ons from K&Company, coated with glitter.

My camera battery is officially dead now, and I have no idea how long it will take to recharge it. Hopefully no more than a couple hours. Meanwhile, I have to get started on Father's Day cards. And baby gifts for my neighbor who just brought home twins! There's always more on the to-do list than there is time to do them!! This weekend, DS and I are headed up to my parents' house since DH is out of town and it's a holiday weekend. It will be nice to get away, though I'm not looking forward to the drive.

Thanks for looking!
