I know….January is now half over already! How DID that happen? I’m just now getting a chance to play with this month’s CHF stamp of the month…a beautiful butterfly stamp by Asela Hopkins. I love butterflies…I think we all do. There is something about that metamorphasis from caterpillar to cacoon to butterfly. One of those everyday miracles we often take for granted.

Butterfly Thanks


This card uses a couple backgrounders together with last week’s CPS46 sketch. I loved it so much, I just had to give it another whirl. This time I flipped it to have that semi-circle panel on the right side. The lace backgrounder is stamped in Canvas Palette Hybrid ink to give the illusion of another layer.

The Delicate Wings image itself is stamped in black and then colored in with my Copic markers. To add some extra interest…a little free-style stitching encircles the main image. I wanted to go with a soft vintage style for this design and added a strip of Making Memories vintage lace along the top of the design. A Prima flower, a Making Memories pearl sticker and pin add a simple accent to the top right corner.

Happy, happy Friday! Have a great weekend and check back in tomorrow for a simply Saturday design… this one is one of my faves. 🙂
