I don't know why I begin most posts with a description of our weather, LOL, but we got RAIN! You have no idea how much we need water! The lakes are down - some done by 50 feet due to the drought. We've had very little snow in the mountains again this year, so the water is low - that's the water we use in our homes. So, when it rains, I am so very happy!
Today begins a new challenge at the Addicted to Stamps Challenge Blog! This time, we would love to see **drumroll please**
That should be a fun one to do, yes?
I'd like to share my creation with you. This time, I chose a very little used stamp - it's the Magnolia large (huge) butterfly. I haven't seen many gals use it over the years. I think it came out in 2011 in the Butterfly Dreams Collection. You can find this lovely stamp here. Here is my creation:
I chose to create an easel card. The image has been colored with Twinkling H2O paints so it has a metallic finish. I also used Magnolia pink dotted paper as part of the background paper. The butterfly paper is from my stash. I pulled flowers from my flower bucket, die cuts from my various dies, gorgeous rose lace, and a beautiful white lace butterfly. The sentiment is Magnolia. I used a Spellbinders' banner die for the sentiment and elevated it on pop dots. I also took the butterflies and the tag in the envie behind the butterfly and applied shabby pink Fran-tage. The sentiment on the bottom was created on my computer. The laser cut frame is from a wonderful little shop called Stay True to God. I covered the frame in Stickles Star Dust. I also used it to edge the sentiment banner. Here are additional photos:
I had graduation in mind when I created this. I'm not sure it would work, though. When might you use this card? Leave a comment below. I'll select one and send that gal a special something from me!
