I have a few cards I would like to share that I have created.

I have a card I would like to share that I have created using my favorite The Rubber Café Trailing Butterflies Large stamp.

For this fun fall colored design I used paper from My Mind's Eye, the bling is from Want 2 Scrap, and the stamp is available  from The Rubber Cafe.
The spectacular seam binding is from Really Reasonable Ribbon .I stamped and cut out the extra butterflies from an En caustic Wax background I created.
Someone asked me to create this for a Thank You card for someone that really likes butterflies. What do you think,have I satisfied a butterfly lover?
Again I have used some of my favorite products to create this fun design.
I used a Darice Butterflies embossing folder from Crafter's Companion, Fabulous colorful ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon, ink from Memento from Crafter's Companion. The wonderful flower was created from a die I have from Cheery Lynn Designs. Once again the pearls are from Want 2 Scrap.
The flower center is from My Mind's Eye Lost and Found collection.
