Just Because Butterfly

I was quickly doing a little blog browsing on Wednesday morning while getting ready for work and spotted this lovely card on Lisa Johnson’s blog.  I thought about that pretty little card all day and just had to recreate my own version of it last evening!  How do you like?
KSS Just Because Butterfly
I pulled out my trusty, faithful 3-Step Butterflies stamp set from Kitchen Sink Stamps to create my version of Lisa’s pretty card.  I have never tried creating a background like this, but I think maybe you’ll be seeing it as an option more often!  I just used my aqua painter and took ink directly from the lids of a few ink pads, then even loaded up the brush and splattered it on the card front, too.  Super easy and fun to do!  The sentiment here is from the Simple Sentiments set, also from KSS.  Then I embellished with a few sequins, sent to me by my BFF, Barbara Anders!
Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Oh, Tammy, this is absolutely gorgeous! Simple, yes, but ELEGANT! Love the colors you chose, and thanks for the tips on the "how-to"...I might try to case this, but sure won't be as good as this!
