~ Thinking of you ~ butterfly card

I seen a card in a magazine last night at Michael's and I really wanted to buy the magazine because I really liked the sketches in it and the card samples.. however they won't let you use a coupon. I left there and headed to JoAnn's.. mainly because I was looking for some ribbon.. but at JoAnn's I noticed that the magazines weren't signed as if they were on sale.. and they had the same magazine. I had the lady scan it and it wasn't on sale.. score!

Tonight I wanted to make that card.. and pulled out my Sizzix Tim Holtz Rosette die.. and there is a love hate relationship I have with that thing.. more in the hate column because that thing perforates the lines to much that it tears the paper.. grrrrrrr.. I tossed it aside and decided to use a new die I got the other day from Memory Box called Woven Circle. I cut it in half so that it spread out in the box I had cut for all my stuff to go on.

The card stock I used is all Stampin' UP!.. Early Espresso and Cream Confetti.

The pattern paper is from Dream Street Papers

The stamp sets are Hero Arts Antique Engravings and a sentiment set that is out of the package so I don't know the name of it anymore.

The rhinestone brads are Stampin' UP!

The distress tool I used is from Stampin' UP!

I used a punch from Stampin' UP! that has corner pieces on it.. I use it to cut the sentiment piece at the ends.

The inks are Memento Black ink and Copic markers

and my favorite thing on the whole card... is the Stampin' UP! Dimensionals.. ha ha.. they are my fav!

thanks for looking ~

have a great airborne day!
God Bless All Our Military.. each and every one of them
