God's Beauty

Good Tuesday Morning Peeps! Hope you all are having a great day so far, it is beautiful here in southwest Missouri. No rain in sight and the sun is shinning and temps are warming up!!!

Today's card is made with a fabulous new set that I just received compliments of my awesome friend and SU demo Lois. Be sure and check out her blog if you get a chance!

I loved this set when I saw it in the cattie, it is a level 1 hostess set. I have seen some really nice things made with it. And it sure didn't disappoint when I worked with it!! Really easy to make a GREAT card with! You really NEED this set! I suspect you will be seeing more of it this week!

I used Karen Giron's Sweet Sunday Sketch for my layout.

The card base is made with whisper white cardstock and is a 4-1/4 inch square. I then used some of the really nice textured black DS paper from the Rockabilly pack. That paper really does ROCK!!!

The center element is made by stamping first the leaves onto the whisper white piece with some pigment black ink and then embossed with clear embossing powder. I did the same with the butterfly and the flowers onto some scrap whisper white. I then colored them with my aquapainter and some ink squished into the lids of my ink pads. I used kiwi for the leaves and pacific point and baja breeze fro the flower and butterfly. I cut out the flowers and added them around the leaves by attaching them with a black brad in the middle. The butterfly is up on dimensionals. I pierced around the edge of the center panel before adding the flowers and butterfly. The center element is layered onto basic black cardstock and then more whisper white.

No sentiment on the front of this card, it could be multi occasion card, Thank you, Sympathy, Birthday, get well, thinking of you, best wishes and so on.

The black and white really look elegant and the pop of color in the middle really makes it a stand out!

Well, that is all for today, Thanks so much for stopping by today and HAPPY STAMPING!!!
