Hi! I’m happy to be here with you today for  Happy Little Stampers’ May Case the Designer Challenge.


The winner will receive a $15 (Australian) gift certificate from Happy Little Stampers.
I am excited to be your designer for May!
Here’s my card:IMG_3597_edited-1
I used a die from HLS Butterfly Dies and a sentiment from Thinking of You.
I’d like to play this card along at Word Art Wednesday’s Challenge #228-#229,at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday’s Anything Goes, and FUSION-Sweet Orange Blossoms.   My card reminds me of both the Sketch and the Inspiration photo. Don’t you think? And I’d like to play at The Card Concept #54 {Spring Flowers} (CAS Mixed Media).

I used a stencil and stenciled white embossing paste onto the black card stock.

IMG_3607_edited-1
I added a small amount of red water color paint to the blooms. (This butterfly is going to flutter over to my conservatory.) IMG_3604_edited-1
I also added a water colored die cut butterfly.IMG_3606_edited-1
Lastly, I stamped the “Thanks” in embossing ink and then I heat embossed in white embossing powder. I’d like to play this along at CAS Mix Up and at Love to Create Challenge 9 Anything Creative/Mixed Media Goes. I’d also like to share this over st Simon Says Stamp Work It Wednesday April 2016: Flowers.
