Stamp Simply #76 - Cabin Fever


Happy Friday Everyone!!!



It's Friday again and that means another fun challenge over on Sharon Johnson's blog. Today Sharon has challenged us to make a card or project that will bring some signs of SPRING, new life, fresh air and warmer temps to those of us still cooped up inside (like here in NE Ohio)!



When I think if Spring & Summer I think of grass turning green, flowers started to pop their heads out of the ground, birds singing and eventually the flutter of butterflies around the flowers. So today I chose to use this gorgeous Inkadinkado (garden delight) butterfly as my focus. I stamped the image onto Pretty in Pink paper using Versafine black ink and detail clear embossing powder. My card consists of three papers: River Rock, Pretty in Pink and Basic Grey (sugared) designer paper. My sentiment (SU Wonderful Words II) was also stamped with Versafine black and embossed with detail clear ep. My only embellishment is the upper left corner which I punched using the SU slit punch and placed a Colorbok metal dot. Very simple yet I think very nice. What are your thoughts???
Don't forget to jump on over the Sharon's blog and check out all the details and her beautiful work of art! Her design team is amazing ... be sure to check out their creations too ... you won't be sorry!!! Always inspirational!! Have a great day! I'll be back later with a card that has been "stuck in my head" ever since I purchased a few Sugar Nellie images ... finally put it to paper.
