I’ve been in a rush today to get Keesh’s challenge done.  Keesh always comes up with some beauties!!!!  Here is the photo we had as inspiration.

 I have stared at this photo several times over the last week and have really struggled with it.  I did attempt something else but it just wasn’t working.  So I came up with this.  Now I was pleased how this one turned out considering my frustration, desperation, anquish!! But when I look at all the other cards that some very clever people have done mine is kind of boring.  Oh Well!! It’s done now!  I have a lot to learn!

Anyway, here is my card.


I have stamped the butterfly in Basic Black onto So Saffron DSP to create a shadow.  Then stamped the butterfly on whisper white with Tempting Turquoise and then cut it out.  I stamped the leaf stems in So saffron on whisper white and cut them out too.  I actually stamped these for my other card attempt (but we won’t talk about that one!).  I scalloped the edge of black card and mounted the DSP onto that and mounted it onto Tempting Turqoise cardstock.  I adhered the butterfly just on the middle so the wings would raise up, and also adhered the leaf stems.  I added a strip of black and created a bow with black cardstock.  The greeting is stamped in Basic Black.  It is a very simple card!!!!

I’m loving this new set “A Great Friend” that is coming out in the new Spring Mini starting on August 1.  I think it is a must-have!!

Go check out the other cards in Keesh’s challenge here.  There is some awesome creations!!!
