Happy Thursday!  I'm back again with another just for fun card.  This was a special card I made to send to Alma using her new Nesting set.  Since I knew it was going to Alma, I started with the classic TCP color scheme of yellow, black and rocker pink!


If you hadn't noticed from my recent posts, I'm in love with the Mini Exotic Butterflies.  I cut a few out in black and loved the look of the negative shape after cutting all three dies in a line, so I embossed the piece with a Sizzix folder, then layered some news print paper behind it and cut a tail to make it a banner.  I lightly sponged ink on the three butterflies, leaving a few white spots and added a top piece cut with the Pinking Border CutUps and accented with black rhinestones.

Next I stamped the nest image as a background all over my daffodil delight background, making an extra little piece to stamp the sentiment from Nesting on.  The bird is stamped directly onto the newsprint paper, then cut out and I sponged with melon mambo, then added some Stickles to it as well as the center butterfly.  Some Black Licorice Divine Twine, a mini library clip and one of the Mini Exotic Butterflies finished things off.

I guess this card would be a fusion of shabby chic and graphic styles.  That's me... never wanting to stay inside the box. {grin}  Well, whatever style it is, I had so much fun making it and I hope it makes Alma smile.

Well, I best be getting a move on.  I think the world spins faster and faster every single day.  Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Hope you find a little time to create just for the sheer joy of creating today!
