FS57 - Merci

Hope you all had a great weekend???

Mine was pretty DH is gone for about 12 days and I'm by myself with the girls!!!

Didn't get much stamping done...but guess what..they are going back to school tomorrow - YEAHHH!!!

Later in the evening I did have a chance and participated in my first "Featured Stampers" challenge #57.

It took me for ever to pick a card...and by the time I did make it I didn't have enough day light to take a picture. So I ended up in my Master Bathroom (best lighting) and took pictures of the card - but it didn't capture the "Purely Pomegranate" at all!!! It looks more like a redish Cardstock...

Anyhow - here is the card I got inspired by:

and this is what I changed:

New Colors - Purely Pomegranate, Whisper White and Basic Gray as my colors. New Ribbon - Basic Gray Taffeta. I added Dazzling Diamond Glitter and the main image was embossed with black EB. The butterflies were colored in with a Blender Pen and I used PP & BG Ink. I also found my lost Color Spritzer Tool and "spritzed" some Purely Pomegranate all over.

I tried very hard not to use Stampin Dimensionals, but my addiction I had to raise the image!!!

By the time I made pictures and downloaded everything on SCS I realized I made a "Typo" on the link to the card I cased and of course nobody has an idea what I've cased - LOL!!! Kiddos started to get hungry....didn't load it on my blog now at 9:46 pm - I'm about done!!!

The end of the story - I shouldn't have made a card today - LOL!!!

Thanks for looking anyway and don't forget to sign up for my BLOG CANDY GIVEAWAY!!!

Have a good night!

Beautiful! Love those butterflies! The colours are wonderful, and the simple splash of ribbon is the perfect finish!

And between you and I, I find Rose Red and Purely Pomegranate the worst colours to photograph! Mine are usually reddish too, and I have to edit them in PSE if I really want the colours to be true.

I like your card much better than the card that "inspired you". The butterflies are a much cuter style.

It's very whimsical and 'happy'.
You did a great job.
