Good Times

Thought I'd take a break from posting Valentines to show you the birthday card I made for the last Hero Arts Flickr Scramble.  I'm a slow cardmaker, but for some reason I usually end up with something I like.  This card uses Hero Arts stamps I hadn't yet inked: little butterflies from Antique Engravings & the frame & sentiment from Lovely. The inks are Hero Arts Neon Red, Wet Cement & Tide Pool.  After adding a bit of the red with an applicator, the butterflies were covered in Wink of Stella.  The Lovely stamp set & Neon Red are both ON SALE at the a2z Scrapbooking Store.  You can also use my discount code, GRETA15, to get 15% off a minimum $25 purchase.  Thanks for stopping by.
