Birthday Butterfly & Softball

This is a card I made for the SCS Challenge #228; I so love the challenges! The base card is SU! White layered with SU! Rose Romance and DP by SU! (Sweet Always). I stamped the butterfly 3 times; once on the white card stock and twice onto the pink polka dot DP. I then cut the two butterflies from DP; adhered one flat, adhered the 2nd one with glue down the center of the butterfly so I could slightly lift the wings for a 3D effect.

All layers were sponged with SU! Close to Cocoa. The butterfly is from Kim Hughes' Little Gal stamp set - I really like her whimsical stamps!

The white bow is a double loop bow I made with my new Bow Easy - my first attempt. I think this will be a GREAT little tool, just need to find some time to use it!

OK, on to some personal 'schtuff'!

I finally got some pictures of our youngest daughter playing softball - I've got to get some more, particularly of her pitching! She pitched the entire game last night and did GREAT!! None of these are great pictures, but there will be more soon. I tried to take several of her at pitching camp, but only one of those turned out and it's still pretty blurry!

Thanks for popping in; have a great week! Hugs, ~M.
