New Wee Memories Challenge!


Welcome to the weekend! Wee Memories has a fun challenge for you this week: butterflies! For my card, I decided to use butterfly and flourish stamps from {ippity}'s Now & Always stamp set. I lkove this set-I have been playing with the different images all week long! I combined these stamps with some bright, fun prints from SEI and Lily Bee.

For the design of my card, I wanted to do something different. I have been making so many cards lately that I am getting a little bit bored with the A2 size cards. So to switch things up a bit I made a matchbook card. Plus, I was able to make a dent in the supply of eyelets that I have had for years! :) These from the Making Memories Watercolor Brights collection matched the green dotted paper from Lily Bee perfectly!

One of my favorite details on the card is the layered butterfly. I simply stamped the butterfly on three different papers, cut them out, and layered them, adhering only the centers together. Then I bent the wings of each layer up so you could see just of hint of each paper.

Will you join us this week for the Butterfly Challenge? We have a wonderful sponsor this week: The Gilded Bee! You can see her Etsy shop HERE. Check out the details of the challenge and the design teams' gorgeous cards HERE.
