Nature Walk Pink with Butterfly

I've raided my UFO (UnFinished Objects) box again.

I have a bunch of left over pieces from designing calendars
and from last year's calendars.

This was one of them.

After inking the flower stamp with markers, I stamped 3 times
 to create some dimension.

I colored the butterfly by swiping markers on a plastic lid
and picking up the color with a Blender Pen.

A little Sahara Sand around the butterfly makes it stand out
and gives it some dimension.

I used the largest die from Anytime Tags from Lil Inker (a NBUS) to cut
and emboss the design.

The mat was a snippet cut just a bit bigger and fussy cut to shape.

The Embossing Folder is a NBUS too.
It's so feminine and pretty.

With all this new schtuff on this card, I've got to go

Anything Goes
(Friendship Theme)

Congratulations, Darnell on passing the 500 mark with your followers!

this time is going on for 4 weeks.
A blessing for me.
Usually I don't have time to get one in.

This time we're playing BINGO.

I have Pink, Butterflies (butterfly), and Dry Embossing.

Do go and check out these challenges.

They both have wonderful inspiration and prizes.

I'm so glad you could stop by.

Hi Bonnie, sorry to have been MIA for a bit, trying to get back into the groove slowly. What a treat to visit & see your NBUS entry - so lovely. First thing I spied after the gorgeous butterfly was that Lil Inker die. It's perfect with this card. The design & the EF are wonderful. You never disappoint me with my expectation of seeing something beautiful here. I always do. TFS & Hugs.

Lovely feminine card Bonnie ... I sometimes wish I could make the stamp again thing work but I think I worry about placement too might have inspired me to have another go...great use of NBUS. Cheers

Oh Bonnie, this card is simply beautiful!! I love that flower and love how you gave it dimension by stamping it over and over. Your embossed background is so pretty and I just love the pink frame. Hugs, Brenda

Great use of both something from your UFO and something from your NBUS (love that new challenge as it will get me to use some things I've bought and left unopened!). And great choice of embossing folder for that image!

It means a lot to see you joining in my NBUS challenge again with this pretty card, Bonnie! The flower garden you created with stamping off is so gorgeous, it's no wonder that brilliant blue butterfly wanted to visit!

I REALLY like the stitched tag (sigh) and the way you used it as an arched window ~ seriously, genius! (My NBUS Mountain just gets bigger thanks to you!) And it all looks so perfect with the embossed BG!! Hugs, Darnell

This is so pretty, I like the multiple stamping of the same image, creates a very cool effect :)
