June CCC

It's time for the June Card Chain Challenge over at Lily Pad, join in, you have until the 13th to upload your card there and that way you will be the lucky recipient of an equally beautiful card hopefully from a complete stranger!  I love this challenge!  You get a choice of either using a colour palette, a sketch or a theme, or all three. 

This month I decided to go with the colour palette and the theme of Friendship.


Paper: Cardstock (PTI); Neenah Solar White; Patterned Paper (My Mind's Eye)
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black Ink; Copic Markers
Stamps: Hero Art (Artists Butterfly H5426); Technique Tuesday (sentiment)
Other: Stampin Up Scalloped Edge Punch; Glossy Accents; Dimensional Squares

I truly enjoyed making this card.  I was not sure that I would get all the colours in but I did!  And I love to piece that butterfly, so the inside wings are popped up with some dimensional squares.  I also added some glossy accents to all the little circles on the wings.

I like the simple  design of the card, can you imagine how many different cards you could make using this same layout but different strips of patterned paper and a different stamped image or a chipboard piece of some sort.

So now I wait until the week of the 13th to find out who I send this card to and who sends one to me!  So exciting!  Go and join in the fun if you can!
