Let Everything That Has Breath Praise The Lord

Isn't that a beautiful thought to begin your day with?
Good morning and welcome to Nonna's Craft Corner.  I am so happy you are here today! It's my turn to post on the awesome Pink By Design blog today and I wanted to share my card with you here also.  I hope you will stop by the Pink By Design blog and see what all the other fabulous designers have been up to.  And, I would love for you to join the Community Forum where you can post your own creations, share information and join in the fun challenges!

Ok, here's my project for today...

* Patterned paper - K&Company - Sweet Nectar
* Martha Stewart Punch (white borders)
* Cuttlebug folder - Floral Fanasty (blue strip of paper)
* Butterfly - Cricut's Sentimentals - cut at 2.5 inches 
* Ink - Rangers - Pumice Stone
* Sentiment - Pink By Design Faith 
* Sentiment mat - Cricut's Elegant Edges cut at 2.25 and 2.5 inches
* Martha Stewart Tinsel Glitter

For the butterfly, I cut the bottom layer twice and put one layer aside. Next I assembled the butterfly layers and covered the solid green layer with Glossy Accents.  Next comes the tinsel glitter by Martha Stewart...I love this stuff.  Of course the hard part is waiting for everything to dry!

  After everything was dry, I took the bottom layer that I had set aside and adhered it in position on my card.  Next, I used one strip of Terrifically Tacky Tape on the body portion of the butterfly and added the finished butterfly, curling the wings upward.  This gives the look of the butterfly flying right off the card!

I truly love this sentiment from Pink By Design. I think this card could be used for so many different occasions: sympathy, thinking of you, get well, even a birthday card.  Well, I hope you have enjoyed spending some time here today, I always enjoy your visits and look forward to your comments!  I hope you have a wonderful day and I'll see you soon.

Until next time,
