Butterfly Card

My goodness, this month has flown by. I don't think it's ever been as hot as it has been this summer! The weatherman says it has, but I don't remember any temps near 107! Today I thought I'd get up super early (while it's cool) and make a card.

Today I wanted to make a card in reds and black. I started by stamping an SU butterfly in red on a 4-1/2" square white card, masking it and then stamping a couple of black flourishes at each side. I stamped 'Just for You' below the butterfly. I rounded two of the corners and then layered it onto red and black. I added a couple of gold brads and then added the layers to a white card. I stamped two additional butterflies, cut them out and layered them on top of the first one, gluing the top one just at the body so the wings could be lifted.
