Gorgeously Grungy Butterfly

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments. I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know!

The card I'm sharing with you today has been created using a new to me technique that is so easy and has me wondering why I've waited until now to try it? The technique of which I speak is inlaying a die cut.

I've used some of my favorite things to create the card... Gorgeous Grunge and Trust God stamp sets from Stampin' Up!, Butterfly Thinlits and a few favorite inks, Soft Sky, Pool Party and Lost Lagoon. Because I wanted to add some dimension to the card, I've backed the inlay with vellum, and to finish the design I've scattered some gold sequins...

Card: Whisper White and Vellum
Inks: Soft Sky, Pool Party, Lost Lagoon
Stamp sets: Gorgeous Grunge and Trust God
Tools and embellishments: Butterfly Thinlits, Decorative Label punch, Gold Sequins (from trim)
Adhesives: Stampin' Dimensionals and Tombow

#32 Butterflies and S is for Sequins at Butterfly Challenge
June Bug at Die Cut Divas
#150 In the garden at Brown Sugar
AG w/ twist of bling at Fan-Tastic Tuesdays
#181 AAG at Pixie's Snippets Playground

I'll be back on Wednesday with another creation, so I hope you'll join me then.
