Butterfly Hugs

Happy Tuesday!  I hope everyone is well.
I am sad to say that this week is my last week as guest designer over at Tuesday Throwdown.  I have had so much fun creating with them and I'm bummed that it is over.  Thank you so much to Davi for giving me this opportunity!  It definitely helped get me out of my comfort zone!

This weeks challenge is "Use Some Sparkle!"  One thing I love to use is glitter so this challenge was perfect for me!!
Our sponsor this week is The Cutting Cafe.  I used the butterflies from the Animal and Bug Love Stamp Set.  I colored them in with my pencils and added lots of glitter to the hearts and their wings!
For the corner frame, I cut out a doily with my cricut, then a scallop circle from my Lacy Labels cartridge.  The top layer is the butterfly wording background from the Animal and Bug Love set.  I washed it out so that it looked more like a subtle background than a bold statement.  It could have been a little darker, but I think it worked out fine.
The last touch was adding gems around the scallop circle and the frame of the card!  It was a pretty simple card but I think it turned out so cute!  Doing the edge of the card as the scallop cutout was new for me.  I've seen it so many times on other cards and thought it was absolutely beautiful, so I wanted to try it.  I need to work on sizing and such for it, but I think I will be doing that more often :)

I hope you will join us this week at Tuesday Throwdown!  You never know, you might be the next guest designer!!
