Butterfly Thanks

Sunday, February 8, 2015

I managed to pop into my stamp room Saturday night to make a card for a few challenges.  I combined the sketch from CAS(E) This Sketch with the colors at Pals Paper Arts and the embossing challenge at Happy Little Stampers.




I had a little CATrastophy with the lights I use when I'm photographing my cards.  One of my kitties (the one I usually say is a little angel) knocked over one of my lamps and the bulb smashed to smithereens.  So I've had to improvise with lighting my cards until my new bulb arrives.  The darkness you see on the left side of this pic is the lack of light from my unlit lamp.  I've tried to compensate with my camera settings and my photo editing software but those can't correct everything!

Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies:
Stamps:  Papillon Potpourri (SU); Ink Splats (Indigo Blu); Thanks (Simon Says Stamp)
Paper:  Pixie (Avery Elle); Rose Red, Whisper White (SU)
Ink:  Basic Gray, Rose Red (SU)
Accessories:  Diagonal Stripes stencil (Simon Says Stamp); translucent embossing paste (Dreamweaver); Basic Rhinestones (SU)

Gorgeous design Jen! LOVE the soft pink with the diagonal embossed design ... the translucent gel really adds a subtle, but pretty design. And LOVE the grungey gray stamped background ... perfect to show off your beautiful butterfly. Thanks so much for playing along at Happy Little Stampers!

Thanks for your lovely comments about my layered butterfly. I've been admiring the lovely way the diamonds on your butterfly are ever-so-subtly repeated in the splatter background. So amazing! I really love your work and this is just another example to adore!

The lighting still showed off the simple beauty of your card. The splashes behind the butterfly, the font and the bling on the butterfly take this card from simple to glamours. Love it.
