So here is my design….I have decided that after seeing so many GREAT designs it was time to give your eyes a rest so I designed a very clean and simple design but still very pretty (at least I think so). I have finally accepted that my style is Clean and Simple….I state accepted because I drool over all the amazing cards I see online with tons of designer papers and flourishes that are just gorgeous….but…..I just plain can’t design them. Well I can but they don’t look anything like the works of art that I see so after spending hours trying to put together a work of art I ALWAYS end up with clean and simple so I have finally just decided to design clean and simple LOL!
I used the Butterfly Medley stamp set (love love love this set) and stamped once on Cryogen White. Then I stamped again on another sheet of Cryogen White and just cut out the butterfly. I then colored both butterflies with Distress inks so they matched. I glued the cut out butterfly on top of the stamped butterfly to add dimension to my design. Easy Peasy! Seriously! I then took copics and colored the flowers and added a little copper stickles on the flourishes (not very neatly either LOL)! Added some pearls and a couple of gems and called it done…it took me about 15 minutes to design this card and I personally really like it. I hope you do too.
Now since you are about half way done with the blog I need to tell you that if you like the PaperTemptress cardstock that is showcased in this blog hop there are 3 packages that are set up for purchase. Each designer was sent either a Spring Green, Spring Pink, or Spring Purple package which includes 20 sheets of coordinating specialty cardstock that are available for $11.24 plus low shipping ! A great value on an amazing selection of specialty cardstock!
