A Butterfly Blog Hop!

Hi Everyone!

I am here today to share with you a Butterfly card that I did for the Butterfly Blog Hop that Sweet Eva put together! This is for anyone who loves Butterflies! And there are so many gorgeous Butterflies to see!! You can find out all the details on Eva's blog,and the list of all of those that are participating HERE!

So here is the card that I did:

 I used the Butterfly from "Faith is Hope" from GinaK designs and the sentiment is from "Regal Greetings" from {ippity} Unity stamp company!
I stamped the butterfly twice onto white pure luxury card stock from GinaK and colored it in with copic markers and a clear star spica glitter pen. I Cut out one of them and popped it up with some dimensional pop dots. I used an oval nestabilities die for the main image and for the black card stock matting.  I also sponged some sky blue memento ink for the background.

I  added coffee bean brown sparkle fluff for the body of the butterfly to add texture and dimension. The black velvet ribbon is from MME Lush collection and the black pearls are from Hero Arts.
This is also the sketch design from this weeks Stamp Tv's Challenge! I have just started to play in Gina's sketch challenges and I have to say that I am really enjoying them! ;)
It can really help to jump start your creativity. Just like the first challenge of each month for {ippity}is a sketch challenge, like I said it really helps to get things moving!
The design paper is from the minuet collection from Memory box and the card base is mother of pearl from GinaK,and let me tell you that is gorgeous card stock!! :)

Well that is it for me. I hope that you enjoy this fun Butterfly Blog Hop! I know that there a prizes involved as well!! :D
I hope you all have a Beautiful Sunday!

Blessings and Hugs,
