I ran it through and when I peeled the two papers about, the red from inside the first butterfly, stuck to the brown one and I loved the way it looked. I think that was a great little accident. By the time I was finished working with it I did have to glue a couple of the tiny red pieces back in place. I have a shear cream bow made with ribbon from Michael's. The die I used for the oval shape is from Spellbinders and I have a few cooper colored pearls around the edges. My sentiment is Sending Butterfly Kisses to My Love, and it went inside because I couldn't decide which butterfly to cover up.

Here is another card I finished this weekend. I made this card for the Sassy Studio Designs design team call. I would really like to be part of a design team, and of course with such wonderful images, Sassy Studio Designs would be a great team to be on. I have used Carrie and colored her with Copics. I love dark hair and a red dress, such a classic look. Then I'm digging through my paper stash and with a room full of paper, I can't find anything I like to go with the red I used. So I used my Stampin' Up En' Francais background stamp with Early Espresso ink and made my own background. Then added a few tiny butterflies using the same ink and a small clear stamp butterfly that I can't remember where it came from. I have also used a little Tim Holtz tissue tape in browns on the top and bottom. This also has butterflies on it. The large butterfly was made using a Cheery Lynn die. The paper I used was not very think and I was afraid it might not cut well with out any thickness to it, so I used two layers; and there was the thought of which color would I like the best.
