Best Things

Here is another card from our last release that I never got around to sharing on my blog. I used Melanie's new set, The Best Things in Life. I also used the butterfly from Take Flight.

I sponged the background using So Saffron, Regal Rose, Ballet Blue and Creamy Caramel. Then I stamped the butterfly in a random pattern using Creamy Caramel. The sentiment was stamped using Black Stazon ink.

For the band on the bottom of the card, I had some leftover scraps from trimming the background I had created. I just used a narrow strip from the scrap pile and backed it with Basic Black.

Thanks for visiting. Have a happy Saturday!
