Just Saying Hello

Sunday, January 22, 2017

No one was more surprised than me that I had some extra time this weekend to make a card for a few challenges.  I'm trying to be organized and get most of my cards done for the week before the Patriots vs. Steelers game tonight and so far so good.

This card uses the colors from Color Throwdown, the sketch at As You See It (back after a little an unplanned hiatus!) and my butterfly is a nod to the flutter challenge at Inkspirational.

That's it for me.  I'm simultaneously super excited and super scared for the football game tonight.  It's going to be a good one!  Go Pats!

Thanks for stopping by!

Stamps:  Painted Butterflies (Altenew)
Paper:  Basic Gray, Crumb Cake, Going Gray, Urban Garden DSP, Crumb Cake DSP (Stampin' Up!); White (Spectrum Noir)
Ink:  Grapevine, Ruby Red (Altenew); Basic Gray (Stampin' Up!)

Swooning over your showcase of the Painted Butterfly, made all the more beautiful with the stage you've created for it! You've inspired me to bring my set out; it's been too long! So thrilled you shared your creativity in the Inkspirational *Flutter* gallery! Enjoy the football game (even though we live in Canada, my husband is a full-on US football fan!)
