Pacific Olive Papillon Potpourri

This morning I sat down with my daughter and we did a little stamping.  It's fun to have a stamping buddy and she loved making things with butterflies.  My husband asked how soon she can sign up to be a demonstrator, and I told him that she has to be 18, so we have quite a while to go :)  I love watching her create and can't wait to spend more stamping time with her.

I stamped this card to go along with the color challenge at Dynamic Duos this week.  The duo is Old Olive and Pacific Point.  I started with a white card base and added some Olive Patterns DSP for the background.  I stamped some Pacific Point butterflies and punched them out with the Elegant Butterfly punch before layering them on my 1-1/4" and 1-3/8" squares.  I popped them up a bit with some Stampin' Dimensionals.  I layered the squares onto some Pacific Point card stock and added some white 1/4" stitched grosgrain and layered that onto my card.  The "thinking of you" comes from the Sweet Essentials stamp set and is cut into a pennant shape with the help of my trusty Hexagon punch (punched on the sides).  I couldn't decide whether I should put the greeting above or below my butterflies, so my little helper decided for me.  I think she made a good choice!  It's nice to have someone to bounce ideas off of :)
