Butterflies



This is the card that I made for Kristina Werner's Color Inspiration Challenge #45. It is also for my sister for her 18th birthday which is tomorrow!!!


The colors for this weeks challenge are basic black, basic gray, and whisper white! My sister loves black and white, so I thought this challenge would be great for her card! I also am using my new stamp set from the Occasions Mini called Great Friend!


I decided to use card stock in all of the colors! I stamped the butterflies with Stazon Basic Black and heat embossed them with clear and tinsel silver embossing powder. (The silver powder is from Stamp-n Stuff). I cut them out and mounted them on to the ww card stock. I then created several layers of card stock. For the saying I used the same stamp set. I stamped the flourish in stazon black and then cut it out. I then stamped the saying in basic gray and cut it out to layer it on the flourish. I used my scallop edge punch on the basic gray layer.



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