butterfly_sympathyI was very sorry to hear a few days about about the death of BB King. I remember my younger days when he would frequently come to Burlington and perform at Hunts (I'm really dating myself here). I never saw him in concert, but I certainly know that he became a true legend in the Blues music world. May his music and inspiration live on forever!

I used the sketch shown to the right as the inspiration for my card design. I changed the proportions to be standard card size rather than "Tall & Skinny", but otherwise you can clearly see the sketch transferred to the finished project. I designed this card for my stamp club gals for our April meeting. The Butterfly Framelit finally became available again and I felt like I could share it. They were so excited to get a chance to use it! I also used Sale-A-Bration patterned papers to create an Easter card that the Women's Spirituality Group mass produced at church. Those cards were included in Easter baskets that went to shut-ins that are visited by great souls in our church.

We used sponges to soften the edges of the white circle with Crumb Cake ink and to darken the center of the butterfly with the Daffodil Delight ink. You can't see it in the photo, but the inside has a white panel that is stamped with poppies across the bottom to add something extra to the inside. It was a quick card to put together, but it will mean so much to the recipient.

Most of the elements used for this card are sticking around when the new catalog starts on June 2nd. The pretty DSP and the poppy stamp we used on the inside will be retiring and no longer available.
