Paisley Butterfly Kisses

Believe it or not, I bought this blue & chocolate paisley paper on Friday and used them Saturday morning to make 4 cards - YAY for me; I didn't hoard the DP like I usually do. LOL

I love just about any color with Chocolate Chip. My BFF's favorite color is blue although she likes sapphire blue better; I thought this combo would still work - it's soft and pretty!

I used the same layout I used in THIS post. The base card is a beautiful light blue, layered with chocolate chip which I distressed the edges, then I layered the blue & chocolate paisley paper. Believe it or not, I had "just enough" of the light blue ribbon - tell me, it was just meant to be, huh?

I stamped the paisley butterfly from Papertrey's Butterfly Kisses set in chocolate chip onto whisper white and mounted on light blue card stock. I edged the white circle in blue and the scalloped circle in chocolate chip. I added some 'bling' to each butterfly; various size rhinestones. Each card has a different verse inside; a nice variety she can use as needed.

H0pe she likes them! Thanks for popping in; hope you come back soon! ~M.

I love this card! It is so cute. I need to check out paper trey. I have seen this butterfly set used a lot of different ways and I really like it. They also have a very cute lady bug set. I loved your card "mom's butt" and I went out to look at Inky Antics...they have some very cute things also!
