Vintage Fall Butterfly



I'm hooked on the challenges at Embellish Magazine lately! I think it's because the really stretch my brain, but they are so much fun. This challenge was to use rust, green and yellow, and make a vintage card. Vintage is hard for me. This card uses some paper from my stash (I bought it several years ago and keep finding small bits of it), along with green flowers from my Prima basket. The button is from my grandmother along with the lace. I used a Nesties label die and stamped it with the script stamp from SU! Botanicals to layer under the butterfly, which is from a Cuttlebug die and embossing set.

Here's a closer picture of the butterfly and flower:


That's it for today. I was sick yesterday and am still fighting a headache. And I am SO tired, I want to lie down and sleep all day. BUT, there is laundry to catch up on and Carter is waking up from his nap. Have a good day and Thanks for looking!

This is beautiful, Melissa! I've got to get my hands on a script stamp! I just keep hunting for script, patterned paper, but a stamp would sure make the going easier :)! Love that lace! Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving me a sweet comment!
