I'm Off....

I'm off to ScrapFest and to visit our families in Ontario today! Spencer and I are leaving Calgary early this morning. That should be an interesting flight... me and a 3.5 year old! Usually my hubby is great big help when we travel but he has to stay at home and work so it's just the two of us going for a visit.

For the next 6 days, I'll be posting a wide variety of cards and some techniques as to how I did each of them.

For today's card, I created this one last week for a challenge at one of my old stomping ground, Scrapperie. They're having a Snail Mail Soiree this month and have posted a new card challenge every day for the month of April.

This card was made for the challenge using a butterfly.

Oh Beautiful Butterfly

supplies: patterned paper, ribbon, pink flower: We R Memory Keepers; stamps: Stampin' Up!, BasicGrey; cardstock: Bazzill; ink: Versamark; edge punch: EK Success; embossing: Cuttlebug; white flower: Prima; brad: Making Memories; other: embossing powder, vellum, thread.

I used white embossing powder and my pretty Stampin' Up! floral image stamp to create the black back ground.

Don't forget that I'm giving away a FREE set of myStamp BOX stamps for the month of April. For details see THIS post! Good luck!
