Live, Laugh & Love



Hey there peeps!!!!

Today I am sharing a card that I made with three, yes count em, three challenges!!! The first one is the sketch, which I found at the Just Add Ink Blog, this is a fairly new blog as this is just their third challenge. The next is the color challenge at Pals Paper Arts The color challenge is Melon Mambo, Pretty in Pink and Black, with neutrals being added at your discretion. The last one is for the Stampin Up Late Night Stampers Yahoo Group to use butterflies.

The base of my card is Melon mambo I followed that with some whisper white and the DS paper is from the Sweet Pea DS pack. The stamp set I used is "On Your Birthday" stamp set. I stamped the sentiment with black stazon and used my circle and scallop circle nesties to cut out. The two butterflies are cut with the Sizzix Bigz Beautiful Butterflies die. I cut two one in melon and one in black. I used my swirl embossing folder on both. I added some melon ribbon across the middle and added some sticky black pearls.


The inside:



Well, that is all from me today, thanks for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!

Well done on the triple challenge! Love how you used the black scallops only part way around the cirlce. Your butterfly is gorgeous (I just ordered it and can't wait to get it!!) and the three brads outside the circle are a lovely balance to the butterfly. Great job, Vicki!
