Everybody likes BLING!
I'm guest designing again today at Sweet Stamps blog. The challenge theme this week is 'bling'. Yeah. I LIKE this theme! I had a great time designing a card and blinging it up!
I used my new favorite, "go-to" butterfly stamp set on this card. It is the Sweet Stamps set, "Fanciful Butterflies" (S600). There are 4 separate butterflies in this set, and they are beautiful. The sentiment is Sweet Stamps set #9099, "Fancy Birthday 2-line". I used My Mind's Eye Indie Chic:Nutmeg paper on this card, found in the Sweet Stamps store. I used a Lifestyle Crafts doily die, some 3 Girl Jam ribbon, and bling from my stash.
I stamped the butterflies in 2 different shades of Close To My Heart blue ink (Indian Corn Blue, Crystal Blue) then used CTMH Crème Brulee, Crystal Blue, and Indian Corn Blue inks and a water pen to give them more color. The sentiment is stamped in CTMH cocoa ink.
