Butterfly Bling

Before I show you today's card here are a couple of pictures taken of the hail storm we had here on Thursday.
This is a quick shot of the front porch taken during the brief storm - it only lasted 10 mins or so and we were lucky that the stones were really small.
And a couple of HOURS later, when it was time for the doggie walk we came out to find this ice block still intact!!
Oops! I see now I could've removed the twig :-0

At least we were tucked up inside ( after a quick dash to put the car safely in the garage!!) so had the best excuse to make another card :-)

This card is a case of a card by last weeks Just Add Ink's winner, Amy White.  You can check Amy's card out here.
It was the red frame that caught my attention as I "recently" acquired the Square Framelits from SU so it was time to get them out!

The base of the card is Whisper White and the DSP is from the Epic Day This and That pack. The Gold glimmer paper is cut with Bigz die and the next layer is Pool Party card stock using the Elegant Butterfly punch . The top layer is punched from the DSP with the Bitty Butterfly punch.

And the Raspberry Ripple frame was made by first stamping with the Dictionary stamp using Black Stazon ink and then cutting it with the Square Framelits to create the frame.

The Hello Lovely greeting was stamped using a marker to ink the words only part  of the stamp.
And, as always, lots of dimensionals were used in the making of this card ( but no animals :-))

Card stock: Whisper White, Raspberry Ripple, Pool Party, Gold Glimmer
Designer Series Paper: Epic Day This & That
Stamps: Hello Lovely, Dictionary 
Access: Big Shot, Beautiful Butterflies Bigz, Square Framelits, Elegant and Bitty Butterfly punches, Basic Rhinestones, White Bakers Twine

Happy Stamping until next time,

Jan
