Just Us Girls #644 - Word Week

 Hello!  We have a new challenge at Just Us Girls.  This week is our Word Week challenge and Vicki has chosen the word BUTTERFLIES.

 I had three foiled butterflies on my desk, but I knew I had this stamp and stencil butterfly set from Taylored Expressions that I really wanted to use instead.  I started by using the red cling stamp for the bodies, stamping it in black ink.  Then I laid the two layering stencils for the wings and added two colors of orange ink.  I pulled out the die cut and embossed sentiment I had in my stash and laid it on the background.  It looked so busy.  I needed to break it up in some way.  I decided to use a thin frame to cut out a frame from the background piece as well as from black card stock.  I adhered all the pieces to the card base and added a secondary sentiment.  There were more black pearls, but somehow they didn't stay on the card!

Beautiful background using the stamps and stencil! I love how you added the black frame in the center and great combination for your sentiment!

The black frame really brings your eye to the sentiment without distracting from your lovely butterflies, Lisa.
