Watercolor Wings Butterfly Swap Card

I’m excited to be attending Stampin’ Up! OnStage local event in Milwaukee this weekend with my sister and several of my downline.   
In addition to getting the new catalog, receiving free gifts and prizes, seeing new product display boards, sharing ideas with fellow demonstrators and making projects with some new products and stamp sets…  we swap cards with other demonstrators attending. My sister Debbie helped me work on my swaps Sunday night.

My swaps are a butterfly card made using a technique I shared a few weeks ago on the Springtime Foils Butterfly card (click here for instructions & video) and the Petal Palette Stamp Set Card (click here for instructions & video). 
This butterfly card is perfect for many occasions; birthday, wedding, anniversary, congratulations, thinking of you or sympathy.
