Butterfly Dreams




I have wanted this stamp set since PTI released it in February. I just love how Niki designed it!! Butterflies are one of my all time favorite images. And they have a special place in my heart. Whenever I see one, I always think of my sister-in-law who passed away from Hodgkins Disease 15 years ago. It's like a sign that she is near me. It's funny, I just now realized that rainbows used to be the sign (long story) and here I made this card in rainbow colors. It was definitely not intentional! But I am loving the coincidence!!

Anyway this card was made for the PTI swap that I am in over at SCS. Angela gave us sketches to choose from and boy was this one a tough one for me. (Sorry, I can't find the sketch right now.) But once I got it together, everything fell into place. I love how that happens.

Stamps: PTI Butterfly Dreams
Ink: PTI Hawaiian Shores, Versamark
Paper: PTI White, Pure Poppy, Summer Sunrise, SU Old Olive, PTI Hawaiian Shores, PTI Bitty Dots paper in Summer Sunrise & Berry Sorbet,
Misc: PTI Butterfly Die, flat back pearls
