Bright Butterflies and a Give-A-Way!


Hi everyone! I know it's only January and we have a lot of winter left but I needed a pick me up from this cold and I wanted something bright to celebrate The Alley Way Stamps 3rd Birthday! I saw the inspiration for the Runway Inspired Challenge and it is so bright and cheerful and made me think of warmer times!

I used some of the gorgeous images from the new 'Bitty Border' stamp set to beautify my butterflies and stamped another small image and sentiment from the new 'Flower Doodles' stamp set. Both are from the new release at The Alley Way Stamps! Too cute!


A side view of this card to show off these winged beauties!


I kept the inside clean and simple and added just one butterfly (I couldn't resist!) and a couple of more small images and some tiny pearls. I left lots of room to write a special message or add in a sentiment!


Now for the exciting part of todays post! As part of The Alley Way Stamps 3rd Birthday Celebration, I get to choose one lucky reader to win the fabulous TAWS 'Mustache Mania' stamp set!
