stickers. . . .

are not my usual go-to for making cards.  But, I have some beautiful foil butterfly stickers that I decided to use on a card for the Flutterby Wednesday challenge which is to use a sentiment on the front of the card along with a sentiment.



The sentiment is a older one from Hero Arts but still a very nice one to send to anyone in need of a hug.  Gold embossing is so pretty and becoming very popular again (which reinforces the saying, "what goes around comes around")!!  When I started stamping - some 17 years ago or so, heat embossing was THE thing to do.  :-)

I love the lacy circles dies from Spellbinders and the gold sequins are a recent acquisition.

Have a great day!

Such a sweet card, I really like how the scallops on the edge mimic the wings of the butterflies.

I love how you used the sentiment with the two very ornate diecuts! The gold-embossed focus sentiment is perfect with the design! Also, thanks SO much for being such a supportive blog friend to me, Joy!
