-------> You ARE HERE Megan Aaron
I admit that this sketch scared me a little at first, but I am in love with how this card turned out!
Here is the card I created:
I used My Mind's Eye papers, Jillibean Soup pins, May Arts ribbon, Clearsnap inks and embossing powders and of course this gorgeous new release stamp set! The butterfly and 'with sympathy' comes from the new release stamp set - Breathtaking Butterflies. The poem on the insert is from the Healing Wings stamp set.
I made the insert removable so that is actually the 'inside' of the card.
Here is a close-up of the butterfly stamp.
I stamped the solid butterfly in mustard ink on white cardstock, fussy cut it and inked the edges.Then I stamped the detailed butterfly on vellum in pink and embossed it with opalescent embossing powder before fussy cutting and adhering with foam tape for dimension.
