Butterflies in the Sky

Do you remember that show on PBS called "Reading Rainbow"?  I LOVED that show.  They always had their opening song....Butterflies in the Sky, I can go twice as high.  Take a Look, Read a Book, It's Reading Rainbow....I sing that song every time I work with butterflies (and trust me...that's a lot!)

I wanted this card to mimic the OMBRE look which look which is really popular right now.  I love the blues together (plus doesn't it look like a sky).  This card was very very easy to make.  The hardest part was lining up the three pieces of card stock in the embossing folder.

For the label, I used the designer label punch and just entered the one side through the bottom of the punch and put it between the two cutting blades to get just the one end punched.  The dollies were cut into thirds and just tucked behind the label.

Colors:  Island Indigo, Bermuda Bay, Pool Party, Naturals White, and Smoky Slate

Accessories:  BIG SHOT, (Retired Embossing Folder), Papillon Potpourri Stamp Set;  Many Thanks Stamp Set; Bitty Butterfly and Designer Label Punches; Dollies; Stampin' Dimenstionals, Rhinestones, and Stamp A Ma Jig
