The original concept for this card comes from Ann Clemmer...I saw her card on her website...she had used the little butterfly "All A Flutter" on her card and she used what looked like kraft cardstock. I used Very Vanilla CS and the new Square Lattice Embossing Folder. I also used the Lattice Die Cut layered on top. There is a strip of Red Rose CS layered under the embossed portion. The butterfly is from BIGZ butterflys and I stamped it with Elements of Style and colored with watercolor pencils. I used little pearls for the butterfly body...

I know it's been a while since I posted anything...haven't really been in a stamping mood...A day I have dreaded for weeks has finally arrived...my two sons are finally gone...Both boys are firefighters and have gone back to Oregon for the fire season. Freddie, the older one, has been gone for a month now, he's in Frazier, Oregon. This year he's on a rappelling team...the thought of anyone, much less MY son, being lowered into a fire area from a rope from a helicopter is just plain crazy!! Michael, is on a crew in Ukiah, Oregon. He just left this morning...so we said our goodbyes last night with a lump in my throat and tears in my eyes, I gave him a big hug and kiss and say prayers that they will be safe. They will be gone til probably October or November. So.... I decided to stamp to take my mind elsewhere...If you have kids, you know where I am at... :) This card was stamped with Summer Mini Catalog - Tropical Party. I used Pumpkin Pie, Melon Mambo and Garden Green. I stamped the palms onto patterned DSP paper from leftover Sale-a-bration. The background is embossed with Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder and edges punched with scallop border punch.
