Butterflies and bling comin' at ya today! Just Add Ink's challenge this week is to make your card very feminine with pink and sparklies! I chose SU!'s dainty Pink Pirouette and one of their butterfly stamps, since butterflies are dainty as well. And, surprise, more rhinestones!! :)

This card used the kissing technique, for which this butterfly is perfect. I inked it up in Pink, then took my dot stamp inked in Espresso. My [p]inked :) butterfly resting rubber-up on the table, I kissed it with the dot stamp leaving Espresso colored dots on the butterfly. Then you take the butterfly and stamp it on your paper. The trick to this is a quick, light touch with the pattern stamp; press too hard and it will smudge. This kiss is just a peck - a butterfly kiss, if you will!!

Stamp Sets: For All You Do, Occasional Quotes, Polka Dots & Paisley
Ink: Pink Pirouette, Early Espresso (used Stampin' Write Marker to outline butterflies)
Paper: Pink Pirouette, Basic Gray textured, Whisper White, Early Espresso
Tools: Scallop Edge punch, Large Oval punch, Scalloped Oval punch, Dimensional, glue dots
Embellishments: Basic Rhinestones, Flower Fusion 2, Designer Buttons Neutrals
