FMS #51 - Beautiful Butterflies

Happy September! School has started and we're beginning to adjust to our new schedule. The kids both had a great first day at school and I was able to get a handle on some things here at home - yeah! :) As for stamping, I whipped up a card for this week's sketch.
I decided to pull out my much-neglected Beautiful Butterflies die and I put together a happy, cheery card that I hope will make you smile.
I am in love with these Vintage Faceted Designer Buttons. They are so elegant and add that special touch these butterflies were calling for. This is such a great sketch from Cindy Hall - I hope you get a chance to play along. Stop by the Freshly Made Sketches blog and check out all of the great inspiration from the rest of the design team Have a super day!

Be still my heart! You've created my favorite type of butterfly - the layered one - but you've added the faceted designer button! GORGEOUS! This idea is definitely a keeper!
