Butterfly Kisses Day 17

Oops, another late post for Jen's card a day challenge. Had a great day crafting yesterday with my friend Leah (BeeCherryLady on the Cricut mb) but as usual we spent much of the day chatting so I had to do a quickie. Don't you just love it when the paper does most of the work? I was like a kid in a candy store last week at M's with their paper pads at 50% off. I loved this Me & My Big Ideas paper so much I bought it in both the 12x12 AND the 8x8 sizes. I also scored on these cute metallic adhesive words in the $bin and a card was born. I chose a corner of the paper with the pretty flowers and hand cut another flower from the page and popped it for dimension. Then I used my Cuttlebug butterfly die/emboss combo for the butterfly. I cut it twice, embossed the top layer and adhered it only in the middle so the wings would fly, then added some silver adhesive beads to the body to echoe the metallic sentiment. The pink metallic heart dotting the "i" is from J's. Corners are from the Jasmine Cricut cartridge that I cuttled with Swiss dots. The inside was a convenient scrap to which I added 2 more corners and a tiny butterfly from a Martha Stewart punch. Sorry the pix aren't so great. The sun was really shining through the window causing shadows. Be sure to stop by Jen's blog to see all of the wonderful things she's creating. Just click HERE.
