Got the Blues!

Hello Friends! I hope that your week went well. We started school this past Tuesday, but many families in neighboring towns are still without power. Yesterday, I had to run a few errands after school (car accident paperwork, crafty shopping) and then my family and I had some dinner together and we went to play Mini Golf. It was a great evening! I found the Butterfly Die-namics from My Favorite Things when I went shopping. They jumped right into my basket and came home with me. (I did pay for them first though...LOL!) I have had this card saved on my computer for quite some time and I knew that the MFT Butterflies would give me similar results. Basically, I CASE'd Carrie's card. It's so pretty and I didn't really want to change things up too much.

This week's Blogger's Challenge is to make a creation with monochromatic shades of blue. You can find all of the details to play along on Lisa's Blog. I used my new Butterfly Die-namics with some old patterned paper scraps from Stampin' Up. I followed Carrie's design and then used some Bashful Blue ribbon in one corner and a birthday sentiment from My Favorite Things in the other. To make the butterfly centers sparkle, I added some blue A*Muse Twinkles. This card was quick and simple! Thanks so much for visiting with me today. Have a wonderful weekend...Toodles! :D

Love the little butterfly trails! This die is one of my favorites although it's a little neglected.

Love your delicate blue butterflies, Kimberly. I plant a lot of flowers that attract butterflies and it has been so strange this year because there have been throngs of them and they are all yellow!! Is yellow the new black? rofl. Hugs, Gayle.
