Today’s card was lots of fun to make.  I used a technique called Tea Bag Folding.  Tea Bag Folding uses small squares of paper and folds them to make different shapes and images.  I folded two squares of paper to make a pretty butterfly for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches Challenge.  Here is my challenge card:

And here is the FMS banner:
I built my card around the sketch and the butterfly.  The butterfly is crafted from a piece of designer series paper (dsp) from the Pretty Petals DSP Stack.  This bright blue paper worked beautifully for my butterfly.  
For the background, I spritzed Mint Macaron and Pacific Point ink on Whisper White cardstock.  Sorry, it’s a little hard to see in this picture. 
To the background, I added a strip of black text from the Neutrals DSP Stack.  Next, I used the Hearts Border Punch to make a pretty strip from Pacific Point cardstock.
To finish my piece, I embossed the sentiment in black and added a few rhinestones.  (Yes, I love my bling.)
Finally, I mounted the piece on Pacific Point cardstock and then put that on my Basic Black card base.
I think my butterfly looks like it could flutter right off the page!  What do you think?  Let me know in the comments below.  I love reading them!
Happy stamping!
