Anything Goes



This week over at the SSS Blog the theme for the challenge is Anything Goes.  I had just made a Mother's Day card so why not pop it in.  It's been a while, for some reason I seem to not have as much time to craft lately, not sure what's going on.  Nevertheless, I thoroughly enjoyed making this card.


Paper: cardstock (PTI); designer paper (DCWV: Citrus matstack); HA Layering paper (orange colour)
Ink: Archival Ink (Sepia); Versamark
Stamps: The Craft's Meow (Cherished)
Other: HA White Embossing Powder; White Uniball pen; Hug Snug seam binding; Twine; Martha Stewart butterfly punch; MFT Dog Tag die

I white heat embossed the stamped image on yellow and then did it again on blue, twice.  Then I trimmed out the blue flower and adhered it, and then trimmed out one floret and adhered that with some dimensional foam.  The butterflies were punched out from the left over embossed image.

That's it from me for now.  Off to get my daughter and her friend ready for a fun club at church they like to go to on Friday nights.  Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!
