Birthday Butterflies

I don't know about you but for the last 2 days we've had nothing but rain here in Kamloops.  So much for our nice, beautiful weather.  The sun has come out from the clouds here and there this afternoon and it is warm out there but it's wet, wet, and wetter.  With all the dreary weather I decided to make something bright and beautiful.  And butterflies are beautiful so I pulled out my beautiful butterflies dies and my cottage wall dp and got to work making my Mojo Monday 108 card.  I also took the time to paper pierce a pattern in the top right hand corner and practiced my french knots on the sentiment. (See close up below)  The white panel seems to be missing something but I didn't touch it because I didn't want to make it too busy.  And I suppose the butterfly could have used some embellishment but I'm so worried about over doing it and then have to start all over again.  In the end I really like it.  There's isn't a lot of stamping but I enjoy playing with paper more than I do stamps.

For any of you Rich Razzleberry fans, the floss I used was DMC 3803.  It seems to be the best match that I've found (so far) although it may not be quite dark enough.

Anyhow I hope all of you have had a wonderful weekend whatever weather you're having.  I'll chat again tomorrow until then, have a fabulous day ;-)

  1. LOVE the razzleberry! The butterfly looks great in that colour :) I made mine today too...we are getting in at just the last minute!! LOL...no, I don't have all the nestabilities, but I've collected quite a few over the years. They were a great investment :)

  2. Oh I do love the razzleberry - and that DSP! Gorgeous card. Your butterfly is such a wonderful touch. I guess I really do need that die =)
