And yes, I am back with another Summer Starfruit coloured card.
I really love the warm tones it holds, when it spreads it's love :) all over my card.
Today, I inked up for the first time my Swallowtail stamp set from Stampin Up.
I love this stamp set. I so see God's beauty in these elegant creatures, called butterflies. To me they reflect hope and new life.
And for that reason, I was so thrilled when Stampin Up added this stamp set to their collection.

This gorgeous, plus-size butterfly will provide a breathtaking focal point for scrapbook pages and cards. Or sprinkle it with adhesive and Dazzling Diamonds Stampin' Glitter, then turn it into a one-of-a-kind tag for an extra-special gift
I created this card for one sweet friend and downline member of the Pursuit of Stampiness Pals (and one that I see and connect to, way to little). She had send me one gorgeous card over Easter. We were gone, so it was a sweet surprise coming home to her beautiful handmade card.
So when, all was unpacked from our little get away, I jumped into my craft studio and got crafty.
I had hopped over to the Paper Players to find one sweet and fun Tic-Tac-Toe challenge #139 created by the lovely and talented Jaydee. I picked the pearls (uche 'dazzling diamonds'), a tag and ribbon. And I came up with my butterfly design card.
The dear Stampin' Royalty Challenge ladies had one similar idea on their beautiful blog with their Pearls and ribbon theme Challenge #170. I hope my dazzling diamonds are close enough. They spark as well, right. I was just out of pearls and I hope they don't mind me using these other cute blingies!
Oh, how I love the Rocky mountains here in Canada. We actually already spotted some beautiful butterflies in the valleys.. It seriously made my heart jump. I loved watching them dance around in the open skies!
