Sunburst butterflies

Good Tuesday morning to you all. We're having a heatwave-it's 46 F outside-wonder if the sap is flowing. Soon, I hope.
My card today is for the Just Add Ink Challenge , to add a sunburst. Now, my friends have all been making these cards, and they made it look so easy. ME? Not so easy. I don't know if I over-think things, or what. It took me forever to figure this out. But then, geometry was never my strong point. After many false starts I finally won out. I think.

I am trying to use up these K& Co. butterflies. They are so pretty, and these don't have any glitter on them, so my card will be going to Operation Write home-thus the sentiment. The design papers are from Close to My Heart-Dotty for Yiu, and MME-Reunion. The card base is Stampin' Up cardstock. I used the EK Success arch punch to make the border. I stamped the sentiment (My Favorite Things 'More Essential Sentiments") with versa Mark ink and heat embossed with brown embossing powder. I added some gold peel off line stickers, and some gold metal dots from Imaginisce with the heat tool.


  1. You've done a wonderful job with your sunrays Jackie! I don't think there can ever be any wrong with card-making! Your butterflies are really sweet! Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week!

  2. Well you did a great job for your first go Jackie. I really like how you alternated the paper patterns and added those lovely butterflies to fly above. Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week.

  3. The gold zig-zag stickers are a nice touch in between each paper panel, Jackie. This is a lovely card! Thanks for playing along with us at Just Add Ink.
