Sweet Stamps Center Step Card

Sweet Stamps Challenge #7:

Center Step Card
I've never made a center step card before, so this was a fun challenge to do!!

Our team lead Sandy, created this template:

Here's my creation:
The stamps I used for this card include "Butterfly Bookmark" for the two end panels and "It's Your Special Day".  For the main butterfly I used the "Intricate Butterfly Die" by Marianne Designs! Other products used from Sweet Stamps include: "Lavender" Shades Dye Ink and Soft Pink Rhinestones.

Side view:
I just love how this card turned out!

A close-up of the butterfly:
I used Creative Inspiration Paints "Tutu Pink" to cover the entire butterfly.

A close-up of one of the side panels, in which I used "Butterfly Bookmark".  It's a new stamp that was just released last month, one of my favorites from Sweet Stamps!
I added some Creative Inspiration Paints to the Butterflies, but it is kind of hard to tell from this picture, sorry.

 Make sure to join us on the Sweet Stamps blog, we'd love to see what you create.  You have a chance at winning $20 to purchase some "sweet" things of your own!!  Also make sure to check out all the other lovely creations from the other DT members!!

Have a great day!
