My crafty life is certainly better with Heartfelt Creations in it! For this card, I assembled bits and pieces leftover from previous projects. I just love the blue and yellow in this Sun Kissed Collection!

The sentiment is cut from Sun Kissed Collection paper. The butterflies are stamped with Archival ink from Brookside Manor onto Classic Editions paper (retired) and cut with Garden Romance Die. I sponged the edges of the butterflies with Broken China Distress Ink. The blue label die is from Fancy Tags Nestabilities.

I added some machine stitching, lace from my stash, and pearls from Studio Calico for texture and dimension.

The white, decorative border is a negative leftover from Decorative Flower Pot Die.

Thanks for stopping by!
