So, between chores and cleaning and sorting and again, rearranging my craft room, I managed to sit down and make this simple but pretty butterfly card. It's another of those I made for my "thinking of you" stash. These days it seems that I have more family and friends who live away than close by to share a cup of coffee. Sigh, I think my three sons should have taken me with them when they all moved out west, don't you? 😉
Stamp Set: Wetlands - sentiment (Stampin' Up!); Inks: Tim Holtz's Fossilized Amber Oxide and Spiced Marmalade (Ranger), Soft Suede (Stampin' Up!); Cardstock: Soft Suede, Whisper White (both Stampin' Up!); Patterned Paper: Gabrielle (Bo Bunny), Succelent Garden (Stampin' Up!); Other: Butterflies Thinlits Dies (Stampin' Up!), Simply Stamped - Butterflies Dies (Taylored Expressions)
The theme I used is from the Retro Rubber Challenge. It's an anything goes and one of my favorite kind of theme. But, you have to use a stamp that is a year old or older. For this one I used the sentiment from Wetlands which is from the 2013 Annual Catalog.
The sketch I used is from the Sunday Stamps Challenge. I loved the simplicity of this sketch. I've been using up bits and pieces of things I have laying around my desk and the butterfly patterned paper was perfect to showcase that bright Calypso Coral butterfly.
So glad you stopped by the Coffee Pot Stamping Cafe,
