Hello!! -- Loves Rubberstamps

**For the YNS Brand NEW digi BLOG HOP,

Hi there!!
There is a new challenge up at the Loves Rubberstamps Challenge Blog today!!!
Oh yeah... it's that time again...!!!
There are prizes to be won and fun to be had, so don't forget to pop over and link up your latest creations!!  

I have seen Karen from Paper Playhouse and Mona from Cupcake's Creations use these fabulously large and amazingly stunning butterflies as their focal image and I knew that I wanted to give it a try!!

I love FALL and gorgeous rich fall colors... but a girl has got to get her weekly dose of the BG's!!
My last few projects haven't had a speck of BG on them and that had to be remedied!!
(I have an insane love for all things in the Blue Green color family!!) ;) ;) ;) 

Here's the sketch:
So.... do you have 20 minutes???
If so... you can recreate my card!!

Here's what you'll need:

I used Blueprints 1 & 2 for my quick and easy mats on this A2 card.
The pierced circle STAX for matting my focal image,
one of the dies from Fancy Butterflies, and a fun
Hello die from Happy Hellos as the sentiment!!

I also used yummy Blu Raspberry card stock from MFT and
Daffodil Delight from Stampin' Up to coordinate with my DP.
Some daffodil delight candy dots finish it off!!
Voilà!!  A super quick and easy card!!

If you don't have Fancy Butterflies yet, what are you waiting for?
These are a GORGEOUS must have set for your die collection!!
(Oh!! and did I mention there are 4 dies in the set!!)

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
Stamp n Doodle Challenges: In the Garden
A.R.T. #16 Anything Goes
