SOS450: Quit Bugging Me

As you may already have guessed, the brief this fortnight at Shopping Our Stash is to create a card that features insects; so round up those ladybugs, bees, grasshoppers, spiders, dragonflies, ants, or... BUTTERFLIES!

I'm somewhat obsessed by grids at the moment, especially grids that are composed of circles. Since I have a 1.5" circle punch and a butterfly punch that fits perfectly inside it, this was a super-easy card to make. All the pink and green patterned papers are scraps, the sentiment is composed of older Avery Elle ("happy") and Lawn Fawn ("birthday") stamps and the A7 background paper is either Doodlebug or Carta Bella. Apologies in advance for overusing this idea, because I can already think of about 12 different variations, just using punches and scraps... of which I have many! 

Be sure to head over to SOS to see the fabulous cards the crew have made especially to inspire YOU! ♥


  1. I LOVE this! The butterflies are gorgeous and I love how you combined the fonts on that pretty sentiment!

  2. Wow Butterflies what a fantastic "grid" card, of course I was expecting a collage butterfly card. LOL. I love everything about your creation and the sentiment does not look like it was frankensteined together. All is perfect!!!

  3. This is a dynamic grid card! You butterflies seem to suggest a lot of movement. It must be the the way you layered the background papers! Brilliant!

  4. Ohhhhhhhhhhh lovely lovely lovely!
