Hello Ladies! Oh I have some news to share with you! I have been honored to join not one but TWO new design teams this week! First I have been asked to design for Glitterbabe at Glitterbabe's Challenge! Stef has some awesome images and I can't wait to work with sure to drop over and join in the fun at the Challenge Blog...we will be doing weekly challenges and of course there are going to be PRIZES! Second...I am now a new member of the Squigglefly DT! My term will be from July through December. Holy moly! They also have the most awesome images as well! Be sure to go out and check their store if you haven't been there! The variety and versatility of the images is awesome! I am anxious to begin my new duties and hope you will join in on all the fun at both places! Thanks so much to Glitterbabe and Squigglefly for having me!

OOOOPS! Bet you want to see a card today!!! Well I do have one for you!

Today's card uses another one of Gina K's stamps...the butterfly...I stamped the large butterfly several times to give it a "shadowed" look and then randomly stamped the smaller ones. The embossed background was created using one of my Spellbinders Impressabilities..inked. I love how it turned out...very deeply debossed! I have heard that some users have been disappointed in the way these emboss and deboss...I found that the trick to getting a good imprint is to run it through my cuttlebug more than one pass...after several passes it makes an awesome image. It just depends on your paper thickness how many times you need to pass it through. Don't give up using them! Once I discovered this, I will use mine more often now. The border that I used was a MS punch that I created 2 of and put them together covering up the join with a ribbon.

Well hope you enjoyed this card...and hope you all have a wonderful weekend! I hope to get to play this weekend...will be off to see you all and catch up with you too. Thanks tons for coming by!

This is so very pretty Vicki and the impressabilities plate you picked couldn't be more perfect! I found it also helps to mist your cardstock with water before you emboss it.
