I made this card for Sharon Johnson's Stamp Simply Challenge. According to the rules, you can't use any picture stamps. The only stamps allowed are sentiments or background stamps.
Since I called in this morning taking the day off for a *mental health day*, I was fortunate enough to have the time to play along!
A friend of mine is going through some tough times right now. And sadly, I don't get to spend as much time with her as I used to, so I thought this sentiment would be perfect. The card is going in today's mail!
The sentiment is Penny Black's True Friends . I love that sentiment, and could actually use it for all my friends that I don't see often.
I stamped it on Urban Prairie paper using turquoise pigment ink, then embossed using JudiKins Detail Clear embossing powder. I used my petite oval Nestabilities to cut and emboss.
The designer paper is also from the Basic Grey Urban Prairie paper pad.
I used my Martha Stewart butterfly punch and cut the butterfly twice. Once in the turquoise color as a base, and the second time from Sunflower Prismatics medium. The bling on the butterfly is from Kaiser Craft .
Honestly, I have to admit that I wanted to add ribbon or something else. But ultimately I decided that the paper was pretty enough to stand on its own, so I quit while I was ahead!
Thanks for the challenge, Sharon. It was so much fun to be able to play along!
And thanks to each of you for stopping by!
Power Poppy August Release Day!
