Butterfly Bliss

Hi everyone...happy February!

My share today is the Sale-a-bration set called Bliss and it's definitley one of my favourite stamp sets!  I know I say that about all my stamp sets, but seriously isn't this a pretty set?  Love it!!  This card reminds me of Wedgewood china {g}

 Here's how I made it...I used the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing folder on Whisper White and layered that on Bashful Blue cardstock.  On a strip of cardstock, I stamped the larger image, centering it first then adding images around that centered one. 

I made two strips of scallops with the Ribbon Border Punch, stamped Bliss and used my large oval punch and the scallop oval punch. Then I stamped the butterfly and cut it out, added a sparkly rhinestone and put it on with the Multipurpose Glue. 

Then to finish it I made the bow...this bow is so much fun to make (I used a spatula!) and I've promised everyone a picture tutorial on how to make it...so that's coming soon...I promise! 

At a class we had in December, I was saying that the Fork Bow.. well...it.just doesn't have a great name...so Jennifer (thanks Jennifer!!) came up with a brilliant name, we're now calling it the "bow de fourchette". Now that's a much better name!!

Thanks so much for stopping by and sharing your time with me!
