Bliss with Butterflies

Some weeks the cards just seem to make themselves.  Other weeks, it's a struggle to get something made.  This has been one of the latter.

Luke has decided he doesn't need a nap every day.  Needless to say, it's cutting into my stamping time!  Actually, it's Nana that needs his nap the most.  A couple hours of peaceful stamping helps me keep my sanity!  Oh, well, I guess he's telling us that he's not a baby anymore.  Sigh!

It took a couple of days, but I finally made a card for the Sketch Challenge 323 at SCS.

And I used the colors from the ColorQ Challenge #75

I had to substitute for Cool Caribbean.  That was before my SU Demonstrator days.  I tried to pick a butterfly from my collection that was close in color.

Edited to add:  This also qualifies for the Stampin' B's Challenge to use bling.

Card Recipe

Oh my, this is just beautiful! I am glad you got some stamping time. I am the same way---so glad when my DGD goes down for her nap---a beeline to the stamp room! Thanks for playing with the CQC this week!

Gorgeous and sooooo elegant! I really love this, Bonnie. Oh, too bad about naptime being over. And, a little sad, too. They grow up so fast.
