Less Is More: Butterflies

This week's Less Is More Challenge is to use butterflies.  If you don't usually click over to Less is More to see all of the participants, be sure that you do it this week because already on the second day of this weekly challenge, the cards are stunning! 

Be sure to click on #72 - Sarita's card.  I follow her blog and literally gasped aloud when I saw this beautiful card - the thumbnail just doesn't do it justice.  Then there is an earlier card (#19) with a swarm of white butterflies that is just simply sweet.  Of course, I could list all of the 84 cards that are currently posted - I'm sure there will be hundreds by the end of the week.

Here's my humble entry:



  • Stamps: Just Rite Friendship Blooms Cling Set, Verve Thanksful Hearts sentiment
  • Ink: Stampin' Up Pear Pizzazz, Soft Suede
  • Paper: Stampin' Up Pear Pizzazz, Peach Parfait
  • Accessories: Stampin' Up embossing folder, Pear Pizzazz Taffeta and pearls, Nestabilities Labels 18, Martha Stewart butterfly punches
