I was suffering so much from stamping withdrawal last night that I pulled out some stamps & ink and sneaked a stamping. What can I say. Besides being addicted to stamping, it relieves stress and I had a tension headache!
This card is for Susan's (Simplicity) One Layer Wednesday challenge, to create a scene, and the SCS Color Challenge. I love one layer cards because you can mail them without worrying about the Post Office tearing them up or charging for extra postage.
I used the Pocket Silhouettes stamp set for the flowers. I used Pretty in Pink, Always Artichoke, & Cherry Cobbler SU Markers to ink the stamps. The sentiment is from Herb Expressions and is stamped in Always Artichoke.
I scored around the elements with the scoring blade on my paper cutter. The butterflies are punched from the Itty Bitty Shapes punch from Pretty in Pink DSP. I used the Basic Black SU Marker to draw the body and antennae. I would have used the Beautiful Wings Embosslit, but it was packed up tight. You know little boys (or big boys) and anything that moves or has a button is fair game for breakage. I really hid the BIG GUY from the boys and in the process put it where I couldn't get it out easily!
Stamps: Pocket Silhouettes, Herb Expressions
Ink: Always Artichoke, Pretty in Pink, Always Artichoke & Cherry Cobbler SU Markers

I probably should check in the butterfly book to see if there are really pink butterflies. Maybe they are moths. Maybe they are mutant butterflies or moths! Anyway, I made a card & got rid of my headache. I'm happy.
Hope you are happy too.
