Butterfly beauty card

Here is a quick and easy, single layered card using Martha Stewart and Fiskars butterfly punches. I chose some coordinating dp (scraps) and a sentiment stamped on a piece of dp (DCWV).
I rounded the corners of the card for a more elegant feel and added some bling to butterfly on sentiment line and voila. Super easy but beautiful card. Let me know what you think.
Be creative and have fun.

Martha Stewart anywhere punch

Hi, I just wanted to share a quick card that I made using the Martha Stewart anywhere punch. There are several different shapes in this line. I do not know the name of this particular shape, but I liked it. It added a little more decoration than the plain square.
How the punch works: the base sticks to punch with a very strong magnet system. Remove the base and place under the paper where you would like to punch your image and the punch will align and "stick" to base, now just punch out image. I lined up these three windows without any problem.
I used the Fiskars border punch to mimic the same shape on the side.
These work great, and you can punch anywhere.
Have fun. Be creative. Thanks for looking and please leave a comment.
