1. Saturday Challenge is

Here's my sample card as a design team member 
for Mark's Finest Papers! Thanks for looking and head 
on over to JOIN IN the challenge fun!
I rummaged through my paper drawer and found colors
that matched, pretty closely, the colors for the challenge.
Then I needed an idea...ummm...so, I checked through
my die cuts to see what I could use and I found this sun
burst, but then what??? I managed to get my layers set
and then I struggled some more. sigh...Finally after 
going through my MFP stamps I saw the sentiment and
thought, "this will work"...somehow. I found a butterfly
and used Stampin'Up markers to apply ink directly to
the stamp and then I "huffed" a bit of moisture to the 
stamp and ink and STAMPED! 
I like the watercolor look and the soft colors. I added
it to my card using a bit of mounting tape and 
rounding the wings a tad. 

Thanks for stopping by and consider following my blog.  
Be sure to join in the current challenge now!!

I used MFP stamp sets
"Hello Butterflies"
"Birthday Mini"

  1. Beautiful! I love how you described how you made your card! You described what I'm sure a lot of us do, but don't mention! Crafting is work, but once we're done it's worth it! :)

  2. Very pretty; love the sunburst!
