Simply the Best

This is my favorite of all the 12 cards I made for the Anni-VERVE-sary, so I guess it's fitting that I used the phrase "Simply the best." This was Julee's sketch #8.

When Ericka was here last week for a day of stamping, we went to lunch and then next door to Michael's. Can you believe this Martha Stewart butterfly punch was reduced to $5? Had to buy it...Ericka bought one as well.

I stamped the Verve butterfly stamp on cardstock and then used the Martha butterfly punch. I like the effect of a butterfly within a butterfly. I love the look of the mini pearls on each butterfly.

I love the clean lines of a faux bow.
