I made this card yesterday and it is for the Through the Catalog swap, part 3. I chose to use an "elements" set, which is Baroque Motifs. The sentiment is from Warmest Regards. I used Rose Red and Black cs and ink and GP white cs. I used a Martha Steward punch for the butterfly, which is popped up in a dimensional. It doesn't show well in this picture, but I used a sakura clear glitter gelly pen in the center of the flowers. The faux brads were punched out with my 1/8' punch & glued on the corners.

Mother's Day

This picture was taken yesterday afternoon at our Mother's Day get together. That's my DH, Ron, me, and my sweet granddaughter, Sarah.
She's 4 years old and is a bundle of energy! She is on the go non stop from the time she gets up until she finally goes to sleep.

This is my creation for today's Featured Stamper on SCS.
I was playing with my prismacolor pencils for the first time yesterday and colored these two flowers from Doodle This. I didn't know what I was going to do with them, so I left them sitting out on my table.
This morning, when I was persuing Kim's gallery, I saw this card:
and I knew what to do with the flowers I colored yesterday! I changed the color scheme and DSP, I didn't use as many layers, my flowers are not popped up, and I left off the sentiment. I received the brad in the center of my flowers in a swap at SCS.
CS: Bravo Burgundy (base layer), Chocolate Chip (layer under the flower layer), Whisper White, DSP (from Target)
Stamps: Doodle This
Ink: Stazon Black, blue chalk ink
Accessories: prismacolor pencils, gamsol, brad rec'd in a swap, stick on brads
