Today's card was inspired by this card I made for the Create with Connie & Mary Challenge #550. The Butterfly Duet punch is unfortunately not available right now but it looks like it will be soon (April 1, no fooling!).
I used the Needlepoint Nook DSP. Have you checked out this pack of paper? I love this pack of paper. Both sides of the paper have great designs and they coordinate so well together.
The sentiment I used on the front of the card is from the Needle & Thread stamp set. Did you see the faux stitching below the sentiment? That is from the Needlepoint Elements framelits. If you are a regular reader of my blog (thank you!) you know I am a big fan of these dies. I have certainly gotten my use out of them. You can see some other samples here, here, here, and here.
Inside of my card I added a strip of DSP (hate to waste those little strips), a sentiment from the Needle & Thread stamp set and the sweet little butterflies.
Starting with a sketch or a color combination really helps me to get started stamping. Try it next time you are in need of a little creative assistance.
