God's Beauty Card

Last night at stamping a wonderful friend of mine Sharon S. and I made this card. She was SO kind to let me play with her brand new set!!! Let me tell you something about Sharon. She is one of those people you meet and you like her instantly. I am SO fortunate!!! I love it when she comes to stamp, she's such a delightful person!!!

Anyway I took out my book of SplitCoastStampers Sketch Challenge printouts and we found one that the butterfly fit in and just ran with it. Sharon had colored a couple of butterflies with yellow and oranges and then we did the blues and purple and found we liked the blues and purple better. That then determined the color of the card stock we would need. The butterfly was stamped in VersaMark and then black embossing powder was used. The inks were added with q-tips and ink pads. We uses Lovely Lilac for the main part of the card. I ran some white through the Cuttlebug Dotted Swiss folder. (I have to tell you this, I laugh every time I write the word Swiss because my brian must misfire and I type swill every time!!!LOL - well, the "s" and the "l" are both used by the ringfinger, just on other hands. Maybe that's it??? LOL). Ok, back to the card. We just followed the sketch for the pieces and added the Ticket punched corners and this is what we got!!! We all just loved it. I took a photo of it before Sharon took it home!!! It was a VERY fun card to do!!! Click on the photo to see a closer view of the colors. This size photo doesn't do it justice. As with all the photos on my blog, you can click on them for a closer view.

Thanks SO much for visiting today and have a WONDERFUL day!
