one of a kind...

Hey friends!!  We are having some seriously nice weather here in the PNW!  I'm popping in with a card that I made for some challenges.  I recently got the new Reverse Confetti stamp set Butterfly Dreams and the matching dies so I teamed it up with the RC Color Me Happy set to create my card.  The colors are from the current Color Throwdown and the layout is based on the current one from CAS(E) this Sketch.  I'm also going to post this to the current Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge of anything goes.   I know there are already a ton of entries... but you can't win unless you play, lol!   Super simple design.  I stamped the brushstroke image in SU!'s Kiwi Kiss on a white panel that I die cut using my AJVD Polka Dot Rectangle Backdrop die and then added some Ranger Diamond Stickles for some sparkle.  The bottom half was partially embossed using my Swiss Dot folder.  Die cut the butterfly and then stamped it using SU!''s Take with Teal ink.  Some Diamond Stickles was also brushed on the butterfly and once dry I attached it to the a SSS Fog cardstock base.  Easy peasy lemon squeezy!!  Decided to add this to the current Word Art Wednesday challenge, as well.


Thanks for stopping by today...


Supplies:  Cardstock:  white, SSS fog; Stamps:  Reverse Confetti; Dies:  Reverse Confetti and A Jillian Vance Design; Inks:  Stampin Up!; Ranger Diamond Stickles

Such a lovely CAS design, Rosemary! Love the way you used the colors. The weather here in the east is warming, but we actually had snow flurries this morning. Crazy!

Lovely bold colour combo Rosie you can't go wrong with a butterfly! Commenting is a bit hit and miss at the moment but I know you'll understand.

Forgive me for my long absence...you must have thought I abandoned you! I really love this card, Rosemary! Your butterfly is so pretty, and the brushstrokes add so much texture and interest to your CAS design! Great job combining challenges on this fabulous card, too!

Oooh, pretty, Rosemary ... what a wonderful sense of movement from the dimensional butterfly wings and that swooshy brushstroke in the background! Hugs, Anita :)
