Good Monday Morning All!! I hope everyone had a great weekend. I went upstate (3 hours away) to my parents this weekend for a family birthday celebration. We had an awesome time except for my six year old Meghan, coming down with a stomach flu at 1 a.m. in the morning. WHAT A MESS! That was it for our sleep for the next couple of days. We traveled home with a pail in front of her (very nerve racking!!). Half way home my other daughter Nicki, also began getting sick. They passed the bucket back and forth. Needless to say it was a very long trip home!! They were up all last night sick as well. My husband and I feel like sitting ducks here just waiting to get sick. Thankfully the girls are much better today. Very calm and just vegging out on the couch. Atleast it has given me a chance to sit right along side of them and do today's challenge!!!

I used some of my new goodies to make this Tri-Shutter Card, including my Walk in the Park Paper, Great Friend Butterfly Stamp, Matchbox XL Sizzix die, and Butterfly Sizzix die. I borrowed my sister's stampset Flight in Butterfly. Since I have to send it back at the end of the week, I wanted to get something made with it.

The cut out blossoms are made with the Boho Blossoms punch and the Urban Garden Paper. The larger butterflies are made with the Butterfly Sizzix die for the gray and the regal rose butterfly layered over top is stamped and cut out using the Great Friend set. The smaller butterflies are made using the MS butterfly punch.
CARD RECIPE:
stamps: Flight of the Butterfly, Great Friend

paper: Walk in the Park, Urban Garden, Black, Pink Pirouette, White CS

Accessories: White Satin Ribbon, EK Success punch, Butterfly Sizzix punch, Matchbox XL Sizzix die, MS Butterfly punch, Hero Arts Black Pearls, sizzix flourish die, Boho Blossom Punch, Regal Rose and Black ink

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you enjoy today's card! I look forward to visiting all your blogs for some awesome inspiration! Thanks also for your wonderful comments each day! I so enjoy reading them.
