Antique Bermuda Butterfly...


I really liked the look of this week's Freshly Made Sketch and so I paired it with the gorgeous colour combo over at Just Add Ink...

After seeing the retiring lists released in the US, I wanted to play with some of the MANY lovely things that will be leaving our catty at the end of June {sniff!}...

Two of the things I was very sad to see on the list were the Bigz butterfly die and the sizzlit doily die... they are both so pretty and versatile! Also on the retiring list is the Naturals Composition dsp and core'dinations cardstock.

Here's the recipe:
Stamps: Dictionary
Ink: Bermuda Bay
Paper: Naturals Composition dsp, Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla, Naturals Ivory, Bermuda Bay core'dinations
Accessories: Antique brad, vintage buttons
Tools: Doily sizzlit, Bigz Beautiful Butterflies die, Beautifully Baroque embossing folder

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. I think this card is just beautiful Amy! I love the sanded texture card you have used and the antique brad treatment on top. The dictionary banner is pretty cool against the lovely vanilla doily - it makes the whole thing "pop". Thanks for playing at JAI this week ♥
