Growing up I spent many weekends with my Great Grandmother. I have fond memories of baking homemade cookies while eating nearly half of the dough, enjoying her delicious homemade soup, and annually assembling goodie bags for Halloween beggers.
Among all these wonderful memories of my time spent with her, I also remember her love of butterflies and her beautiful butterfly brooch collection. Inspired by her love of butterflies and the beautiful Blooms & Bliss Designer Series Paper, I created this card for the Pals Paper Arts challenge (PPA312).
To created this card I used paper from the Blooms & Bliss Designer Series Paper Pack along with Blushing Bride, Sweet Sugarplum and Rich Razzleberry cardstock. I embossed the front of the card using the Fluttering Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The three circles were cut using the Layering Circles Framelits. The butterfly was made using the Elegant Buterfly Punch and punching two butterflies and adhereing them together to make it 3-Dimensional, as though fluttering through the air. Lastly, I wrapped some Linen Thread around the card and then tied off with a bow. Very quick and simple card.
