Butterfly Happy Anniversary (Hero Arts stamp)

Hi, everyone!  Today I am sharing an anniversary card I just made.  I received this beautiful embossed panel from my lovely friend Patti at stationery Styes - thank you, Patti!  I couldn't wait to use it!  I wanted to try a white-on-white card but it ended up being silver on white.  It looks so beautiful in real life - the photo doesn't do it justice.

I added a strip of lace along the edge and a tag that I embossed with Couture Creations Crazy Daisy, which I then tied with white ribbon.  The sentiment is from Hero Arts Everyday Sayings I embossed it in silver - it's hard to tell because it looks black in the photo, but it's actually embossed silver.  The butterfly is silver as well, die cut from silver mirror card with my Memory Box Kalieidoscope Butterfly.  I was inspired by Hero Arts Sketch #3 shown below.  Here's another photo taken at an angle to try to capture the shine of the butterfly and the silver embossed sentiment.

I was inspired by the following challenges:
  1. A Blog Named Hero Inspired by Hero Artist (Julie Ebersole's CAS style) UE C5
  2. Bizzy Becs Anything Goes UE C5
  3. TOP 3 Butterfly Challenge Glamourous 3E #2
  4. Hero Arts Sketch Challenge (I followed Sketch #3 shown below) UE
  5. WINNER MFP Speedy TV Simple Salutations Use a Tag 5E #1


Thank you for looking at my card!  I enjoy reading your comments.  Wishing you a
joyful day!
