Butterfly Swirls

The theme this week over at Crafty Cardmakers is dry  or wet embossing. I decided to use dry embossing for this challenge and used a Darice butterfly corner embossing folder for card.  I cut out the embossed butterfly swirls area. 

I used designer paper for the blue background and the stamped butterflies.  This was a very simple card but I liked how it turned out. 

Thank you for stopping by and have a creative week. Remember to pop over to the Crafty Cardmakers challenge blog to be inspired by our creative design team.
