I created this card for a friend of mine. I used the linen background stamp (retired) and Serene Spring (a new favorite) Level 2 hostess stamp set. Oh yeah and the butterfly on the background is from Dreams du Jour, another new favorite set. I used kraft, chocolate chip, whisper white, and perfect plum card stock. For inks, I used perfect plum, close to cocoa, and black stazon. To color the image I used the water color pencils and a blender pen. I used the new scallop edge punch and the photo corner punch. I wanted a little sparkle, so I added some dazzling diamonds with my 2-way glue pen to the butterfly and bird on the main image. I also roughed up the edges of the main image with my cutter kit! Love that tool!!!

Thanks for stopping by and I wish you a very creative day!!!
