Butterfly Wishes Card
May wishes to you, Patty here with vintage look card for my Mother created with KI Memories papers and 2 different Hampton Art stamp sets. My mother loves the old fashioned look so I took advantage of the new KI Memories Vintage Charm collection.

Butterfly Kisses, Butterfly Wishes card by Patty Folchert
I began building this card on top of the “Blue Ledger” paper, which I stamped with the doily stamp in brown from the Hampton Art/Echo Park-Oh Snap stamp set. Then I fussy cut out the roses from “Roses” paper. I then added a ruler border strip from the “Rulers” paper. Then I utilized the fun “So Very Sweet” ruffle sticker. To add some more texture I chose the ruffle sticker strip of “Roses” with the fringe edge. To complete my theme I then fussy cut two butterflies from the paper “Butterflies”. The Jillibean Soup –Chilled Cucumber Large Stamp set offered the perfect sentiment for my card, “Butterfly Kisses, Butterfly Wishes.;”  Which I stamped onto the “Blue Ledger” paper and popped up with foam dots. Then I just added a punched border strip and some pink vintage trim to finish the card off.
