Butterfly Branches

Good morning, its Monday again! Yesterday was our 12 wedding anniversary, sadly Bill was sick and in bed... but Butter and I went out for a quick bite to celebrate the occasion.  Bill and I will have a date when he is feeling better again.  I can't believe its been 12 years... when we first started dating, I never once thought where'd we be in 5 years much less 12. I'm happy to say, I wouldn't have it any other way... he is a kind and patient man, whom I love and couldn't live without... and each and everyday is a blessing beyond words!  Over the years we've grown together just like my card today... we started with nothing, and grew into something really beautiful...   

When you look at the card, you'll notice a few things, colors sparkle and a simple word.... isn't it funny that that is how many relationships start... something as simple as "hello"!

I started todays project with Whisper White cardstock from Stampin' Up! and three hues in blue. Night of Navy, Soft Sky and Island Indigo, which I sponged over my new stencil from  Memory Box, its called bare branches. I used some vellum (SU) and the bitty butterfly punch also from Stampin' Up! to add to the bare branches, and added some Doodlebugs sequins in Blue Jean and some dollar rack clear sequins I got from somewhere (I don't remember, its been so long). My last step was to add some Wink of Stella to the butterflies, and the branches. This card is much prettier in person.. but still ever so fab pictured!  My card base is in Basic Gray(SU). 

Here is a close up of the sentiment "Hello" from the Crazy About You stamp set from Stampin' Up!

As you can see... I totally love my Stampin' Up products but I also find simple accents and stencils to really make the SU products POP!!!

Thanks for stoppin' by
