Sending Hugs

(This is my 2nd post of the day, please scroll down if you want to see the other card).

Hero Arts is taking part in the OWH World Card Making Day Blog Hop and they are offering an awesome prize.  All you have to do is make a card today and comment on their blog with a link back to your card.

I try never to pass up a Hero Arts challenge as they have been super generous to me personally, and many others, and I do love their stamps.  So today  I dug out a buttervly stamp I have not used in a while and made this card:

Paper: notecard (Hero Arts); Neenah; patterned paper (My Mind's Eye - Hattie 6X6 paper pad)
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black; Copics; Hero Hues Poppy Chalk Ink
Stamps: Hero Arts (CG130; CL542; CL380)
Other: scalloped edge punch (Stampin 'Up); dimensional tape; white enamel accent

A nice easy design and one of my favourites!  I stamped the leaf repeatedly with the chalk ink onto the notecard.  Then simply laid down a piece of patterned paper, a sentiment strip and finally I stamped and coloured that beautiful butterfly.  I added some White Enamel Accent to the spots on the wings and when I adhered the butterfly to the card I only glued the body down and used some dimensional tape under the wings!  I like it, do you?

Hi Brenda,

Your card is beautiful--the butterfly is gorgeous. I haven't had the chance today to make any cards; hopefully I'll have a card finished by the end of the day. You take care and "Happy World Cardmaking day"". Hugs to you.
