and it occurred to me since I also used a whole bunch of Hero Arts stampy goodness to make it I could also enter it in A Blog Named Hero's Challenge #9: Freestyle! :
And here's my card:
I can't seem to stop using this floral image from Hero Arts CG434 Floral Blossoms whenever I need to make a feminine birthday card! The image was stamped in Ranger worn lipstick, spiced marmalade and squeezed lemonade distress inks. The sentiment frame from Hero Arts CL588 Sending You Love was also stamped in worn lipstick and die cut using the matching Frame Cut die. After adhering it to the card front with foam tape I added a couple of Hero Arts Sunshine Dots. The butterfly from Hero Arts CG130 Butterflies set was white embossed twice on yellow cs and vellum. After sponging the vellum piece with squeezed lemonade and coloring in the dots with a worn lipstick distress marker I cut out the wings only and adhered them to the cs butterfly.
Other Materials Used: Papertrey ink white cs, Stampin' Up yellow cs
We are finally getting some much needed rain here in upstate NY - I think I can actually hear the grass saying "Ahhhhhhhhh!!!!!" Hope everyone's been enjoying their summer! My hubby is finally free of the arm brace he had to wear 24/7 and is getting some range of motion back in his arm through weekly PT. We've been trying to "squeeze our summer" into these last few weeks:) Last Monday we took a day trip to the Canadian side of Niagara Falls and had sooooo much fun being tourists for a day! Neither of us had ever been on the Maid of the Mist so we bought the Adventure Pass tickets to do it all! I'm kicking myself for not bringing the camera as we were quite a sight in our garbage bag rain ponchos looking like drowned rats! And at the end of the day there was a stunning double rainbow over the falls!! At the Hershey store we spent an outrageous amount of money on the thickest and most chocolatey milkshake either of us had ever had :) And we promptly lost all our Canadian change at the casino:(
Thanks for all your supportive comments and have a fantastic weekend!
