hello...

Hey there!  Popping in with a card for a few challenges:  MFT Design Superstar, Paper Players, Freshly Made Sketches and Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge (pop it up... the strips are popped up).   As indicated the MFT Design Superstar challenge is happening right now and well... I just can't pass up a good challenge!  This card is for the clean and simple genius category.   I love a good clean and simple design and that is what this week's Fis all about!  I trimmed down some MFT smooth white cardstock into strips and then adhered strips of MFT silver glitter cardstock to the backs of each strip.  The butterfly (from the MFT Beautiful Butterflies stamp set) was stamped in the mint and blackberry colors per the Paper Players challenge and then die cut with the matching die. I wasn't really sure that I would like the mint and blackberry together, but I really do!   I adhered the strips with foam dots and then determined where I wanted the butterfly to be placed.  I stamped the word hello (part of a sentiment from the MFT Springtime Blooms stamp set) in Crumb Cake ink.   The butterfly was adhered and then I added the wood veneer butterflies to bring in a bit more of the crumb cake like color.  My fourth color per the PP challenge is silver.




Have a wonderful day!

Supplies:  Cardstock:  MFT smooth white and silver glitter; Stamps and dies:  My Favorite Things; Inks:  Hero Arts, Close to My Heart and Stampin Up!; Studio Calico veneer butterflies

The little strips of silver glitteriness look superb against the clean ground and those striking butterflies. The popped up strips also add to the overall effect. Such a lovely card - clean and stylish. Thank you for joining us at The Paper Players.
