Think Spring!

I don't know what kind of mood I must have been when I made this card. I almost NEVER use orange cardstock! Maybe I was trying to break out of my comfort zone? Beats me!

The flower stamp on the bottom of the card is Penny Black's Wind Caressed . I stamped it twice using VersaMark ink, then embossed with JudiKins Detail Black embossing powder. The flowers and butterfly were colored with Tombow markers.

The cute little butterfly is Heart Flutter , also by Penny Black. I stamped it on watercolor paper using VersaMark, then embossed with JudiKins Black Opal embossing powder. It has a little glitter in it, and I wanted some sparkle!
I stamped the butterfly again on my main panel, then adhered the first butterfy over it with Scotch Mounting Tape for dimension.

The sentiment is Penny Black's Think Spring! . I just love the font, and think it's such a pretty stamp. It was also embossed with JudiKins Black Opal embossing powder.

The corners were punched with my SU! punch. I added Hero Arts adhesive rhinestones to them for a little more dazzle.

Thanks so much for stopping by. I will have something new for you tomorrow night.

Until then.....

I'm a big fan of orange and yellow! It is so cheery and does more for brightening the soul that a strong cup of coffee!

Beautiful spring design!
