Butterfly Challenge #2

     I have created a card for the Butterfly Challenge #2, which is to use the 3 B's.  That would be butterflies, buttons, and bows. 

 
     I did a run for glue, yesterday, and found this Martha Stewart Punch Around set for 4.97 at JoAnn's Fabric.  It is called Double Arches.  I also found this gorgeous My Minds Eye paper pad called In Bloom, at clearance price (2.99) at Michael's.  For embellishments, I used lace, ribbon, buttons, gem butterflies, and a twine bow.  My sentiment stamps are from Unity KOM of January 2014. 

     Me thinks the weather men have hyped this snow storm far too much.  I barely have a coating.  It's a plot to sell more groceries.  All of you people who had planned on a day off....... surprise!  Have a great day, and I am so happy you paid a visit.

What great bargains you managed to snap up and the colours all work perfectly together. Wish we had a Michaels and a JoAnn's here in the UK. love the texture of the butterflies. We don't have the snow here just continual rain and dull weather. Thank you for fluttering by for #2. Hugs Mrs A. (butterfly challenge).

Wow you got some great deals on your glue run and put them to great use. This is a lovely card with a fabulous sentiment. I love everything about it. Yeah, we just about got a dusting of snow. If we get a gust of wind it will be gone and maybe forever. We can only hope. Have a fun filled week.

What a beautiful card! I love your butterflies, they are different than most. You got a great buy on that double arch punch. I haven't had the need to buy punches in a long time but this one may get me to go out looking.

You got all the B's covered and it's Beautiful - one more B - however, the card deserves an A+! Love the way you used that punch and am still trying to figure out why I can't find wonderful sales that way!
Glad you aren't buried in snow this time around - think you've had more than your share this year.

Beautiful card Mary Anne, I love that gorgeous punched framework! You bought more paper! Good, because I know you were about to run out :) Great bargains, great prices too! I hope you remembered to get the glue you went out for? LOL

Wow, you got some great bargains...and used them to make such a gorgeous card. Love the MS punch used this way. Fantastic. Liked the delicate lace border and that sunshine paper peeking out from the punched shapes. Very springish card, and I'm happy you didn't get dumped with the snow again. You & Carol L. have just had way too much of that white stuff. Now it's time for some soft yellow sunshine. TFS & Hugs
