Wow! Summer has been a bit of a whirlwind around these parts and as a result, not such consistent blog posts.....but I'm back with a new card today and I hope you all like it and find inspiration in it. ;)
The Card base is Calypso Coral with a layer of Wild Wasabi. The DSP is called Tea For Two and has retired. There is a similar pattern in the current Stampin' Up! catalog called Afternoon Picnic, it just has a different color scheme. The stamp set I used is called From My Heart and I stamped the friendship image twice; once in Early Espresso and once in Calypso Coral, cut them out and then layered them. The layered butterfly element was achieved by punching an elegant butterfly and a bitty butterfly out of the same dsp pack. A little distressing with Early Espresso ink and a few pretties like the basic pearls and natural trim
and my card was finished. I love this card because the detail in the dsp makes it look like it took me a long time to make, but actually it was very simple. Let me know if you try this type of sketch this weekend. I'd love to see what you come up with. Happy stamping!
