Every Sunrise

Well, here I am again today with a second post!
I just couldn't help myself as I haven't been able to
do much 'just for fun' creating lately as I have been 
on the road nonstop this last week hauling my Mom to radiation.
My brother is taking her today, so I had the day off
and should be cleaning, but here I am, creating!

I saw that this week (well it ends today), so maybe it is last week,
doesn't take much to confuse
that City Crafter has a 'negative' challenge
and I decided to join in!

Yesterday I was cleaning out my monster amount of
paper scraps and came across this pretty, small piece
from SU and decided to use it for my background
behind my 'negative' butterflies.
the awesome die I used is 
Memory Box Reverse Butterfly Collage.

I stamped a sentiment from JustRite, added a bit of
gem bling strips to each and it was done...easy peasy,
but I think it turned out pretty!

Entering the following challenges:
City Crafter .... Negativity
Butterfly Challenge .... "S" is for Stamping and/or Saphire
Memory Box Challenge .... Tickled Pink
Cards In Envy .... Tickled Pink
Simply Create ...Use Pink or Red Only

Way to use those scraps, Diane! Beautiful sentiment. I should be making more effort to use my scraps. I do now and then, but I just keep making more, too.

Beautiful job Diane. Love the background paper through the negative of the die cut! Makes for a gorgeous card along with the great sentiment.

That die sure is gorgeous and especially teamed up with such pretty paper and those sparkly gems.

I'm sure it's much better to craft than clean... and wow! your card is fantastic. The paper you have used is gorgeous and looks so good against the white.
It is good to see you over at the Buttefly Challenge.

First of all, I'm so sorry to read about your mom's illness. Saying a prayer for her and your family.

As for this gorgeous card! I'm so glad you used your time to craft and not clean because your butterflies are just so pretty.

Thanks for joining our Tickled Pink Challenge at Cards in Envy. :)
