Flowers and Butterflies

Good Morning....It's a chilly one here in the Northeast. It was 39 degrees when I got up this AM. I'm not going to complain though because by the end of the week it's going to be in the 80's. I'm not ready for the Hot and Humid weather yet.

Kerry's challenge this week was Flowers. My first thought was "this is easy". I went through some of my new stamps that I wanted to play with and the one that I wanted to use didn't have flowers. Luckily there's only a few stamps that don't go with flowers so....

This is another Sugar Nellie. Don't worry, for those of you who don't love Sugar Nellie, my next 2 cards are not made using them. I just thought she was so cute with the butterflies and I bought a new butterfly punch at CK that I really wanted to play with so it just seemed natural that she needed to be inked up. The top 2 layered butterflies were punched using the MS punches. The butterflies at the bottom was made using the Tonic punch system. I have seen the tonic punches at various conventions but really didn't know if I wanted it and no one was demoing it for me to try. Saturday there was some punches to try so I got to play a little. I still didn't know if it would be one of those things I would buy and never use. It was the one thing I bought at the convention that I still debated about when I got home. Now I am really glad I bought it. I am still playing to get it to align the way I want but I really like how it looks on this card.

I hope everyone has a good day.
