A Featured Butterfly Thank You

Barbara (Stampfilled Dreams on SCS) is the featured stamper on SCS today. Oh my does she have a gallery filled with yummy projects and cards! WOW! I decided to case THIS CARD of hers because I was drawn to the ribbon treatment and butterfly. Mine turned out pretty pink, which is not the norm for me. I asked my daughter's opinion and she told me, "Mom, you know you should never ask my opinion if your card is mostly pink. You know what I'll say" (She is not a fan of pink....*grin*). Well, it's a start. I haven't uploaded a card since last Wednesday, so this is it.

I also ink distressed the edges a bit with Vintage Photo (Ranger Distress)

When CASEing a card for the FS challenge on SCS, two things must be changed. I used all dp, and added the punched corners (with a new punch that I got from my dear friend Joanne (JoJot on SCS) Thanks Joanne...it adds so much to the overall look of the card!! I also made my flowers vellum, and popped up the card with dimensional tape.

My butterfly is a Spellbinders diecut and I coated the embossed portion of its wings with glitter. The flowers are vellum punched flowers, and I used a roatary cutter for my scalloped edge. The charming sentiment is from Papertrey's Women of Life set and is stamped with Vintage Sepia (Versafine) and embossed with Clear ep.


Supplies:
Stamps - Women of Life (Papertrey)
Paper - Quite Smitten (MME), Prismatics
Ink - Vintage Sepia (Versafine), Vintage Photo (Ranger Distress)
Accessories - Rhinestone Stickers (Kaisercraft), Carl carla craft flower punch, butterfly diecut (Spellbinders), scalloped rotary cutter, decorative corner punch (Marvy), glitter, dimensional tape, clear ep, ribbon (American Craft)


I hope all of you are enjoying your weekend, and are refreshed after all the craziness of the Joyous Christmas Holiday! Thank you so much for stopping by and for all of your encouragement. I so enjoy creating, stamping, and learning!

Happy Stamping!!
