SU Flight of the Butterfly

SU Flight of the ButterflyHappy Saturday to all.  Hope your weather is as good as mine today.  I’m in the midwest and the temps are going to be in the low 80s.  Very nice for mid July  I’m so excited.  This is the first time I have scanned a picture and I scanned it right to my memory card as a jpg.file. WOW  I don’t know about you but I have  a terrible time getting a good picture some times.  How do you process you pictures for posting.  I’m all ears, but I must say this worked very nicely.  Todays card is from the SU stamp set Flight of the Butterly (#111564).  My CS is Crushed Curry, Whisper White and Bermuda Bay.  DP is from Throughly Modern (#115673).  I used the new SU Butterfly Punch (#116629),  it’s a WOW, two white brads and a little pinch of crushed curry polka dot ribbon.  You might be wondering how I got that rectangle scallop square.  Well, you might have already been introduced to this but you can create any size scallop square using our Ribbon Punch (#112091).  I first saw this idea on Julies’s blog Paper Pleasing Ideas.  It’s not hard, but does take a steady hand and some practice.  Oh, I forgot to mention that on the card base I used SUs new  Elegent Bouquet Dry Embossing Folder (#115964).  I did need to give it a little punch so you could see it better so I used the white gel pen for the flower centers and that did the trick.  I hope this card gets your mojo going and please remember you can order on-line at my su website www.sandymurphy.stampinup.net or e-mail me above for any of these great supplies 24/7.  that’s all I can think of right now so I’ll say so long and have a great Sat.  I’m going outside to spread mulch.  Yahoo!!!!
