Butterfly Hello

I have been super busy this week, so I decided to try to combine a couple of challenges today. I struggled with the first card that I made, so I am totally not going to show that one yet...I just don't know what to do with it at this point, but I am NOT throwing it away, I worked WAY to long on it!! So tonight, when I finally gave up and decided that I was going to go to bed, I got inspired to make a card finally, figures right? So, I used the sketch from this Wednesday and today's Ways to Use it challenge, to use a silhouette stamp. The stamps used on this are from my pal Jessica's new company, There She Goes. I stamped the Butterfly twice with Sage Shadow for the solid part and then Chocolate Chip for the detail. I cut them out and popped them up on a panel where I have stamped the leafy vine silhouette stamp, pierced the edges and sponged them with Chocolate Chip ink. The layers are the reverse side of the DP(couldn't find matching colors) and Chocolate Chip. I added some spiral clips with chocolate taffeta and chocolate gingham. The background is Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla, and the DP is from Crate Paper and is part of the Seaweed collection. I pierced and sponged the edges, and since I can't make a card without brads, I added a bunch!!
Well, that is it for me now! HOPEFULLY, I will be back tomorrow with some more inspiration!! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!
