the CASE of the Swallowtail
Bitty Butterfly Revisited

Button Buddies Cherry Hearts

Today we are mixing a little old, Button Buddies stamp set and a little new, Hearts a Flutter stamp set and framelits and I am pretty tickled with the results.  There is only one problem.  I could not decide on  which layot I liked best so i am going to show you all three.

Here we have a little side banner action.  Don't you  love the cherry hearts?  Both of the hearts were stamped in Real Red ink and the images are from the Hearts a Flutter stamp set.  The cherry stem was colored in with Gumball Green and Soft Suede Stampin Write Markers.

Here the banner was placed in middle with the cherries layered on the Real Red Polka Dots from the Polka Dot Parade DSP.

So, right about now you are wondering why didn't I just make all three cards.   Here's the sad truth....I only had that one little strip left of the Real Red Polka Dot Parade DSP!   I have two open packs of Polka Dot Parade DSP and just that one little strip of the Real Red.  I guess it is plain to see what colors I like to work with.  I am going to try and exercise some willpower and not order more of the Polka Dot Parade DSP until I use up some of the other colors.  We shall see how long I can stand it.  

Are you wondering which layout I decided to commit to with my last little bit of Real Red Polka Dots?  Which one do you like best?  I am posting the finished card to my Facebook page.  I am working on posting more often to my page so click on over and see the finished card and let me know if I made the right choice.
