Friends and Butterflies . . .

Hello Dear Friends!

Today I have a card to share which was created for the Dies R Us Inspiration Blog and came together quite quickly due to this beautiful Spellbinder Nestabilities 5x7 Mystical Embrace die set!
Please be sure to pop over to the Dies R Us Store and check out ALL the amazing dies available for you card creating (or scrapbooking) needs.  There are over 40 companies represented and I'm sure you'll find something you just 'can't live without'!

The butterflies I have used on today's card are currently Out of Stock ... BoBunny 'Flutter Dies'  #12839812 ... but there are several other beautiful butterfly die sets what would work just as well ... for instance, the *New* X-Cut Butterflies ... or perhaps the beautiful Sue Wilson Designs 'Magical Butterflies.

I have a friend is LOVES butterflies and I think she's really going to love this card creation!
The color isn't exactly TRUE ... it's more of a bright pink!  But for the life of me, I could NOT get my camera to photograph the true color!  I'm sure it's an adjustment of some sort on my camera but for today you'll just have to use your imagination and visualize this card is pretty pink and medium blue ribbon.  Which are the actual color hues ... sorry!  LOL!
