Happy Hello Butterflies

If you're like me, you have more stamp sets than you ever think you'll get to use in a lifetime. I love going back to some of my older but well loved stamps though. Just because those sets aren't fresh out the shipping box, they are still awesome! I pulled out two Papertrey Ink sets for this card and paired them with one of my favorite paper companies called October Afternoon. Pink and brown were used for the butterfly images and that burst of Summer Sunrise PTI ribbon pulls out the orange flowers from the background paper. I just love those punches of color. The file folder die was from a sheet of die cuts that came with my October Afternoon paper pack. Here's another view of the three butterflies.....ready to take flight it seems. I bent their wings slightly inward and used a small pop dot to adhere them to my card front. I used Glossy Accents on the dots of the wings, so pretty! This card will probably not ever be sent in an envelope..will be best to hand deliver this one.
Note: I'm going to start listing my supplies at the bottom of my project with the links. I think it's easier to see all the supply list in one place.

Supply List:
Papertrey Butterfly Kisses Stamp Set
Papertrey Papertray Stamp Set
Papertrey Sweet Blush card stock
Papertrey Summer Sunrise ribbon
October Afternoon Patterned Paper and File Folder Die Cut

Michelle, I have a few questions for you. First, I saved a few of your photos for inspiration and have posted them to my blog crediting you as the creator.

I see the 'markers' you use, and I was wondering what brand they are- and where you purchase them.

Thanks!
Jessica
