Wild Flowers and Butterflies

This month the challenge on the Hero Arts blog is to make a card, page or project with the theme of love or friendship or else to use the stamp kissing technique. I love making cards for friends and it’s great to send a card to a friend without a particular occasion in mind.

Wild Flowers and Butterflies
Stamps (Hero Arts) Wild Flowers, Old Letter Writing & Tree Birds and Messages

To start with I applied faded jeans distress ink to white card and using the same ink stamped with the Old Letter Writing. For the main panel I applied shabby shutter, broken china and faded jeans distress inks to white card and spritzed with water. Then I embossed the Wild Flowers in white and added some gems.

To make the butterflies I embossed the Old Letter Writing in white on vellum, punched out four butterflies, layered and added gems. The sentiment is embossed in white.

I'm submitting the card into these challenges -

ABC Challenge - N is for Nesties.
C.R.A.F.T. Challenge - In the roll of a die.
Stamptacular Sunday Challenge - Whateva!
Stamp, Scrap & Doodle Saturday - A Punchy Challenge

Another very special card, my friend! I love the softness of this. You keep inspiring me to get out my vellum - it has always given me such a scare! I am still so tickled for you. Hugs, mkm
