Butterfly Card

Today's card is a cricut/SCAL card! I love using my cricut and just don't use it enough for what I paid for it! And today's card was created using a file from Mary at Mamawslegacy! Oh Mary's files are to die for! She has such a variety of files and is oooooh so talented. I cut out the card base, then cut the mat for the butterfly, as well as a butterfly...then cut another butterfly to layer on top...and sprinkled that one with glitter! The paper I chose to use was paper  I picked up last October on our vacation...the inside pink paper was trimmed with one of Martha's punches...added the ribbon and the tag (Nestie tag) and a little flower. This card is actually much prettier in real life...the camera did not do it justice! Hope you like! Be sure to pay Mary a visit to see all her wonderful creations. Hope your day is wonderful. I will be off to visit you all later on today! Thanks tons for stopping by and leaving me some love!

Stamping Boutique Blog Hop

Good morning! Welcome to this month's Stamping Boutique Blog hop! Are you enjoying the hop? Haven't the DT ladies pulled off some awesome cards? I always say it is not hard to create an awesome card with Tracey's images...and that holds true with this new line that Tracey is debuting! There is so much feeling and emotion in these images. If you have gotten to my blog via Kym W's blog then you are on the right path! If not be sure to start at the beginning of the hop which is at Tracey's blog! For my card, I used the Swan image. My coloring is with copic markers and the sky was chalked with pink and blue. The wings were coated with crystal effects and then I added some gold glitter while it was wet. The sentiment was computer generated. Although this card is very very simple in that I didn't really embellish much, I like it that way...I really didn't want to take away from the image.
Now....there is a PRIZE!! Yes, the blog hop winner will receive an UNRELEASED image from the Enchanted line! That image will be on display on Tracey's blog be sure to take a peak at it! ALSO...Tracey is going to give all Boutique shoppers a whopping 40% off during the hop until midnight tonight! Be sure to stop on over and take advantage of that awesome sale!
From here, you need to hop on over to the last stop on the hop...Rhonda's blog. She always has some stunning creations!

Thanks so much for visiting me today...enjoy the hop, and happy shopping!
