Hey there... Hope your weekend has been going well. Spent part of the day helping my oldest write a report for his Social Studies class on the Crusades. And I have to say I learned a thing or two along the way! Anywhoo... have a card that works for several different challenges: Less is More (color challenge: yellow); Retro Sketches, Flourishes (use a butterfly) and Catered Crop (use something starting with the letter B - butterfly). This also works for CAS-ual Fridays... so maybe I will pop it into that challenge, as well.
Back in April I was super lucky and won the entire April Flourishes release... three beautiful stamp sets and a gorgeous background stamp! For my card I decided to use the background stamp, Antique Lace, along with stamps from two other Flourishes sets: Clematis & Butterflies & Botanical Bookplates. I stamped the Antique Lace on white cardstock using SU!'s So Saffron, trimmed it to fit the card front and adhered using foam dimensionals. I cut another piece of white cardstock and stamped the sentiment in bottom corner and then the butterflies were stamped using So Saffron ink. A piece of So Saffron grosgrain ribbon was then tied around the piece. This piece was then adhered using more foam dimensionals. I stamped the another butterfly using Tuxedo Black ink, colored it with Copic markers and trimmed it out. A light coating of Diamond Stickles was applied and then the butterfly was adhered to the card as shown. I seem to be in a white on white with a pop of color mood right now as this is the third one I have made in the last several days. IThe is just something about a crisp white card that makes me happy!
Thanks for stopping by....
