Monday At The Cafe with more butterflies

Happy Monday to you all! It's time for this week's Monday At The Cafe and I promised you more butterflies so here they are for your viewing pleasure.

I started by printing the images from Social Butterflies and Clear Butterflies on Saffron card stock. I colored in the leaves with my Apricot Marker cause in my world, leaves should be Apricot. LOL! I then covered the butterflies and leaves with Glossy Accents and sprinkled Dazzling Diamonds just on the leaves, shaking off the excess when they had had time to dry. I wanted the image to float out of the top of the box, so I cut across the top, stopping at either side of the image and then used my scissors to cut the images out. I paired the saffron with apricot and black card stock and added the ribbon, piercing and brads to finish it off.

For this and many more great sets, head on over to The Cutting Cafe. Just click the link in this post or on my side bar and you'll be whisked away to many more great images.

On a personal note, my husband lost his job today, so please be in prayer that he finds another one soon. I know we aren't the only ones dealing with this situation and I join all of you who are in the same boat in prayer that the economy will soon stabilize.

Thanks for stopping by my little slice of the stamping world and have a blessed day! TTFN

Hugs, Becky
