IC135 For You


Hey you all!!!
Finally I had time to stamp this afternoon....
I would have been done much earlier if I would have known what the *heck* I was doing... - LOL!!!
I had several ideas when I saw the IC #135, but then nothing really worked - does that sound familiar???
After the tenth try I took a break and cleaned up my desk...needless to say that didn't help either - LOL!!!
But at least I had cleared my mind and started with a new idea and this card is the final out come - WAAHHHOOO I have made a card!!!
The Inspiration came from this picture. I have used the wonderful new *Butterflies & Blossoms* Set from *Little Paper Shop*. Btw it's back on the shelf's - I heard it sold like hot potatoes....so go back to the site and buy yourself this fun Set!!!
I have started out with a 5" x %" Whisper White card base. Next I have layered it with a panel of Bali Breeze DP from SU . I have pierced two rows on the left hand side to give it more interest.
The main image was stamped with Pumpkin Pie Ink. The butterfly was inked in Basic Black and also colored with Pumpkin Pie Ink. Everything was raised with Stampin Dimensionals before I have placed it on the card.
Next I have stamped the sentiment from the same Set with Basic Black and also pierced right below it. Then I have added some Black Brads from SU on the top and bottom. Voila!!!
Hope you like the idea??? ~TFL~
