Hi There

Good Afternoon-

I got the idea for this card after perusing Maile Bell's blog. I absolutely LOVE her work: she has such a CAS style! She often uses bold colors in a very modern way. In fact, if I ever feel as if I am running low on creativity, I tend to hop on over to either Maile's blog or Nichole Heady's blog. I can always count on both to inspire me!

For this card, I started with a piece of raspberry fizz PTI cardstock. I punched 6 white circles and stamped them with a small butterfly from PTI's Butterfly Dreams. I tried to alter the position of the butterflies on each circle. I used the Polka Dot Basic stamp set with VersaMark ink to create the polka dot background on the pink cardstock. I also used a small scallop edge punch to create the border. I attached the white circles to the pink base. The sentiment comes from a HeroArts stamp set. Finally, a few small pearls were used to accent the center of three of the butterflies. I hope you enjoy!


  1. Lovely spring-like card. Those PTI ladies are definitely inspiring.

  2. What a delight! I love how you use and frame the recurrent shapes and images. It is so very effective. Well done!
