Oops I forgot to give it a title

Made it through a Monday - yeah!! Sorry no oldie moldie paper today on my card. The first day of fall and it is almost 80 degrees - tomorrow it is going to be over 80. How lucky are we - hard to dress for this time of year. This morning I was putting some things in my card and had my garage sandals on - well guess who wore her garage sandals to work - luckily they are Crocs so they don't look bad - just not too stylish. Did you happen to see the Croc commercials at the Beach Volleyball tournament on TV yesterday - they are too funny.
Well here is my card for tonight - it is based on the sketch at Card Positioning System - very fun to do. I hope you enjoy my creation.
Paper - Basic Grey
Stamp - Purple Daisy Design
Ink - Stampin' Up
Punch - Paper Shapers
Rub On - On Heart One Mine
I stamped the butterfly twice and punched them out and adhered them together - I only put glue on the middle of the butterfly and then folded up the wings so it looks like the butterfly has just landed on the circles.
The stripe on the side is a strip of fabric that is gathered to fit the length of the card. I sewed it to the front of the card and then added the strip of contrast paper on top and stitched it on also. The fabric was leftover from a top my daughter made while she was in college. It is fun to add this dimension to a card - something unexpected.
Everyone have a good evening.
