Nature, Nature

This is for the ColorQ challenge to use Kraft (or Crumb Cake), Cherry Cobbler, Kiwi Kiss, Tangerine Tango & White.

Here's my card.....

I had intended to send it over to the Friday Mashup challenge to have a popped up butterfly and I used the sketch from the Stamping 411 Saturday Sketch Challenge.  Unfortunately I didn't get it finished & photographed in time to  make those deadlines.

This is a 5" x 7" card.  I used my "whacked embossing folder" twice to deboss the top third of the card.  The butterfly was stamped & colored with a SU Marker, smacked with VersaMark and embossed with clear EP.  I did some paper piercing along the scalloped edge of the Cherry piece.  It doesn't show up in the picture though.

Card Recipe
Stamps:  Inspired by Nature, Nature Walk
Ink:  Old Olive (instead of Kiwi Kiss), Black StazOn, SU Markers (Cherry Cobbler, Chocolate Chip, Tangerine Tango)
Paper:  Crumb Cake, Whisper White, Cherry Cobbler
Accessories:  Whacked EF, Scallop Border Punch, Old Olive Satin Ribbon, Clear EP

I've spent a lot of time the past couple of days holding and rocking Luke.  He's had a virus and I'm so glad he still likes to cuddle.  He'll be too big for that soon.  Hopefully he is on the mend and will be back to his regular chatty self tomorrow.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I hope you come back soon.
