Jenny Gropp - You are here!
When I saw the challenge theme I knew exactly which background stamp I was gonna ink up! I loved this beautiful Cover-a-Card background Blossoming Branches, it's new, from the last release. And... just out of the box the mailman brought... I used one of the new Bottom Edger Dies!
I stamped the Blossoming Branches background in Memento's Espresso Truffle. Even though this background looks like it would be a lot of work to color, it really wasn't. I had Netflix on and markers in hand. The little flowers were really just quick dabs with the marker. Along the bottom I used the Bottom Edger Greeting Set. I made a mistake in leaving so much white space in between the edger die and the stamped image. So I just added a slice back in... hiding the seam under my ribbon. = )
I added the Fancy Butterfly Die Cut, curling it around my fingers to give it a little dimension. I used Collall (dimensional silicone) adhere it to the card so it would keep it's curves.
On the inside I added one of the new sentiments... Strength, Hope, Blessings... love the mixed fonts and the message! I added one more little butterfly covering it with Wink of Stella for a little sparkle. The card is 4" x 5 1/2" and opens at the bottom tent style.
