Pop Can Butterfly

I asked my family to save their soda cans for me to use in some of my crafts.  This butterfly is the first of my attempts.  I colored it with some Adirondak alcohol inks and then cut it out with my Cuttlebug and a Spellbinder butterfly die.  I really like how it turned out and will be experimenting with some flowers later.

The sentiment is a rubber stamp that I bought locally and there is no identifying info on it. It's cut out with a Spellbinders die. The Pile It On challenge is to use rubber stamps which I don't do very often since I've started using digital.

Saturday we attended a CKC Convention and Oh. My. Goodness!  It is such a good thing that I don't attend them very often!  Spending mode was in high gear and my husband, who is usually my check, turned out to be an enabler.  One of my favorite companies is Heartfelt Creations and the swirls you see are from them.  It was just one of the things I  knew I "needed" before I left the house, LOL!  I stamped some extra flowers on the DP, embossed, cut out and then added some gems for bling.

A MS punch, some ribbon and lace and a spritz of Lindys Stamp Gang gold finish the card.

Thanks for visiting and have a blessed day!
