Stamping411 Challenge SSC183

I loved the Stamping411 sketch for this week. I needed to make a thank you card and the sketch was a great design for me to work from.

When starting I thought I wasn't going to like it, but once again the end result turned out great. That is what counts. I chose my colors from the Stampin' Up! catalog. Sometimes when I can't come up with the colors I would like to use, I will look in the catalog at the samples, find out what colors were used, and then make a card of my own.

Here is a close up of the butterfly. It is made 3D by using dimensionals and glue dots. I twisted 1/4" early espresso grosgrain ribbon around the middle. I should probably say I also used my Big Shot and the Bigz Beautiful Butterflies die. I am very thankful that I bought it.

All products used are Stampin' Up!
Cardstock: baja breeze, crumb cake, soft suede, and elegant soiree dsp
Ink: baja breeze, early espresso, and soft suede
Stamp set: because I care (sentiment)
Tools: big shot, beautiful butterflies bigz die, elegant lines embossing folder, perfect details texturz plate, stamping sponge, and scallop trim border punch
Accessories: 1/4" early espresso grosgrain ribbon and basic pearl jewel

Well, I hope you like it. I really do. If you have a minute leave me a comment!

Now go-n-stamp!!
