Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge #289


wed-newchallenge-header 

Welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Challenge !! Thank you for joining us for the Anything Goes Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too :-)

This week the challenge is...

Thinking of You

 We are using Prima this week. You don't have to use them to join in but if you have some, we love to see them used :-)

For my card, I chose the Prima Paper (6x6) pad called Epiphany. I simply cut out the paper that I wanted to use and then started stamping. The small butterflies were stamped twice (with outlines and solid). I embossed the large butterfly on vellum and layered the white card stock underneath. I also added my new fave--gold strings!
you're beautiful inside and out
Supplies: Flight of Fancy (Clearly Besotted), Prima (Epiphany), vellum, gold strings, pearls (Basic Grey), Hero Arts (Tide Pool, Butter Bar), sequins


As always, Simon Says Stamp will be giving away a $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store!

Hello Virginia,

What a unique card - the butterfly makes you take a second look. Your choice of DP and element tie in so nicely.

What a lovely expression of yourself to bless someone with. A bit of original art from you to them.

Blessings,
Barb
