another butterfly??

yep. same die as yesterday's card...and again...i have layered multiple cuts (four this time!); i've even used *pink* again... (go figure!) ...but all of these things notwithstanding, the two really could not be LESS alike, could they?

(patterned paper: basic grey, prima, making memories, sei, scrapbook wizard; dies: quickutz butterfly & nestabilities labels 4; gems: mambi, michaels, oriental trading co; inks: colorbox; pen: uniball signo; adhesives: tombow monorunner, 3m foam tape; other: sewing machine)

i do like both cards, however. this one is based on a sketch from jacksonbelle embellishment blog's tuesday challenge from last week. since i have not one but *TWO* friends on the brand new 2010 JBE dt... (stef and amy!) ...i thought it behooved me to get my card-makin' butt over there and play along! plus, it's a great sketch, innit?

i did rotate it; and i had to cheat verrrrrrrrrry slightly by bringing the larger rectangular piece to the top of the card. (i triiiiiiiiiiiiiiied to leave it lower, i promise you; but it just did NOT want to cooperate!) other than that i was utterly faithful to the design, which i love. long live the lovely jacksonbelles!!!


  1. Love your lovely card! That butterfly is spectacular!

  2. woot woot sista!!!! What a gorgeous pinkabutterfly'licious card!!!!!!!! Thanks for joining in on the jbelle sketch rock my friend:)

  3. Look at you rockin' the Cuttlebug ... I knocked mine off the table yesterday and managed to break the handle off ... now I have to wait until my new one arrives ... absolutely stunning card for the sketch ... ♥ ya.

  4. So so cute!! I love the butterflies! Keep em' Coming. I need to carve a special totally Lauren custom butterfly for ya. lol I have a feeling it'd have a lot of pink ink on it? hehe

    never saw that blog before pretty cool!

    I do love that Body Hunter font! We should have a mini challenge we both do on our blogs using that font and see what we come up with on a card. Wouldn't that be fun?

    Either way I wanna see what you do with it. lol

  8. I liked the previous butterfly card very much, but I like this one even MORE! Maybe because you added another butterfly layer...not sure...they both have fab gems and stitching AND ya know I love the pink/black combo :) This new card is so light and pretty and feminine. Awesome job. You rocked the sketch too!
