Inspired By Stamping... and butterflies.... at Christmas? hehehe!

Hi!  Thanks so much for joining me today!  I have a fun/unique type of Christmas card to share today that I made based on the latest Inspired By Stamping Challenge:

And I made this:

( a close up on the pretty tree topper )

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Inspired by Stamping Butterfly Wings
Inks: Distress Inks, Staz-On
Sizzix Embossing Folder
Rhinestones: Kaisercraft
Pearls: Recollections
Gold Stickles
Studio Calico: Mr. Huey in White
Brown Pleated Ribbon

I had so much fun making this card because I tried so many new techniques.  For one I thought of the box and made a butterfly tree simply because I wanted to use my new butterfly stamps that just came in the mail. Secondly, I sprayed my new Mr. Huey spray and dabbed it off with a paper towel and I love the snowy look it gave to my tree.  I also did water coloring with my distress inks for the butterfly tree topper.  Viola!
* I am also entering this into the Simon Says Stamp Challenge: Anything Goes

Happy Crafting and thanks for stopping by!

I've seen trees decorated with butterflies for Christmas, Lisa! I think it's neat! Different and unexpected and very beautiful. :) Thank you so much for playing with us this week at IBS challenge. :)
