VCRocks Blog Hop #3

There is only about a month left of my favorite group VC Rocks!  Where is the time going?  We are already on our third blog hop.  You should have joined me from Barb Furlong .Or if you are joining me out of sheer randomness you can see the entire hop from here.

For today's hop, I made this fun card.  Using Tempting Turquoise, Regal Rose, Rose Red, Garden Green and Velum card stock. I used Beautiful Butterflies die, Elegant Bouquet & Petals a Plenty embossing folders, Fancy Flower punch, Two Step Bird punch (for the leaves), white gel pen, clear rhinestone brad, silver cording (retired) and dimensionals.

The butterfly was cut from the Rose Red and Velum card stock tied with the silver cording that made the body & antenna.  The flower was punched three times in Regal Rose and embossed with Petals a Plenty folder. Two of the flowers were snipped to the middle of the flower and then the petals were brought in tighter so they over lapped and became more 3D. A clear rhinestone was put in the middle. The leaves are the wings of the bird punch.  The white gel pen was used to color the centers of the flowers of the a base of the  card.

Don't forget to come back August 21 & 22 for this years final blog hop.

I hope you continue on with our blog hop by visiting Lori Palmer

Happy Stampin'
