More Creative Elements

I am struggling to find time to stamp.  It seems like everything is done in spurts and starts!  It took 2 days to create this simple card and another 2 to get it ready to post! 

The layout is from a lovely sketch by Nance at Paper Players.

The colors are from the SCS color challenge this week to use White, Gray & Turquoise.

I had trouble deciding whether to do the butterfly on gray or turquoise so I tried both.  As you can see, the gray won out this time.  White embossing on the turquoise is really pretty though.

Oops! I just realized that I was supposed to use Going Gray instead of Basic Gray.

Card Recipe

Thanks so much for taking the time to visit.  I hope that I can get back to daily blogging but it doesn't seem to be happening.  Thanks for sticking with me.

Bonnie, this is lovely! A gorgeous use of these colors--love how you've colored in the bits of the vines. The corner details on the bottom is such a great take on the sketch! So glad you were able to play along with us this week! :-)

Bonnie, don't worry. We'll be here when you pop in to blog, when you have time. I don't seem to have enough time right now either, and it bugs me. Just have fun - that is the point! (I keep telling myself that too) Pretty butterfly card today. Gray is good!

Anne Marie said...

So pretty, Bonnie! I love the punched corners along with the flourish image. The color just jumps off the card, too! Thanks so much for joining us at the Paper Players this week! :)

Bonnie, it is so very pretty and I love it on gray. Sounds as if things are still taking your time with the move...and maybe the baby. :-)

I absolutely love this set and you are show-casing it beautifully here! It must be frustrating not to be able to blog daily but I'm sure you'll get more time eventually.
