We got some great news today--the doctor had prepared us to expect that hubby would again need treatment, but the repeat test is negative! What a great way to start the week!
I was also finally able to get a card made for Freshly Made Sketches 200th challenge--just in the nick of time. My sister loves butterflies & the color blue. Right now she could use a hug, so I hope this brightens her day. Big surprise--I again used my self-adhesive Fun Foam! This time the Memory Box butterfly die cut was covered with Elizabeth Craft glitter. That is the most amazing glitter which burnishes to an incredible smooth sparkle (can't appreciate it unless you see it in person) & then doesn't rub off. The background is done with 3 distress inks: salty ocean, mermaid lagoon & peacock feathers. If you have trouble with smooshing, try Betsy Veldman's technique which is to just press the paper into the spritzed inks & pick it up--don't move the paper through the inks. The stenciling is done with Gesso & Tim Holtz Bubble stencil.
I layered trim over lace & added tiny pearls. The butterfly is layered over another one cut from vellum & I used my favorite Heidi Swapp stickers for the words. Edited to add: My 3rd entry for the Great Outdoors challenge at Dies R Us & the Butterflies challenge at The Mixed Media Card Challenge. Thanks so much for using some of your computer time to visit my blog.
