Mocha Butterfly

Good morning, Friends! Another week is flying by! Today is the last day of school for this week. They have conferences tomorrow and then no school on Friday as well! Yipppeee!!! We finally get to sleep in a little! Well, except for my poor husband who really could use a little extra sleep. And, according to Nick, there is less than 15 days of school left in the year! Wow! Where did all of that time go? 

Today's card was inspired by one I saw on the Hero Arts website. I like to look at their website and see their art work. They make some really great cards and I think it's fun to re-create them using Stampin' Up! supplies! I really love this Mocha Morning designer paper and am so sad it will be leaving us at the end of this month. So I decided to get it used up! Actually, I have a lot of designer paper that needs to get used up! Anyway, I started with a piece of Very Vanilla card stock and added strips of the Mocha Morning designer paper to it. Then I punched a window using my 1 3/4" circle punch and rounded the corner using my 1 1/4" circle punch (love how that gives a bigger rounded corner). I laid this panel on my card base of Very Vanilla to give me an idea of where to stamp the greeting from Friendly Phrases which I stamped in Soft Suede. Then I popped the panel up onto the card. Then I took a piece of Crumb Cake to the Big Shot and used my Beautiful Butterflies die to cut the butterfly. I stamped the image from My Friend in Crumb Cake and sponged the edges with Soft Suede. Then I added a button from the neutrals buttons with some Very Vanilla narrow taffeta ribbon. This is popped up onto the card. Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
