I made a card! Yes, I did. Finally. I was inspired by Lauren Bassen of https://laurafadora.wordpress.com/ background card on April 20th. I loved the soft colors and wanted to duplicate it. I didn't have the background stamp she used but I used a tiny square one from SU called Itty Bitty Backgrounds. It is very old but I do love it. Stamped in versamark and embossed in clear powder. Then sponged on distress ink. I die cut the new SU butterfly and sponged the same colors on it in reverse order so it would show up on the card and not blend in. The wishing die is from Simon Says and I cut it twice in white cardstock and once in pink and glued them together. Then stamped the rest of the sentiment in black ink. Added a little bling and it was done. I love how it came out. You know how sometimes you make a card and it doesn't look like what it did in your mind and you are just "Oh well, it's okay". This one was a nice surprise. I am going to enter it in http://seizethebirthday.blogspot.com/2015/04/make-your-own-background.html. Be kind to one another.

Thank you, Greta. I will also add this card to the Grab button for Uniko StudioUniko Challenge that is Things with Wings.

  14. Sorry, I'm so behind, my friend. I've been thinking of you, but I've had lots of trouble lately with Blogger going round and round and then saying "web page not found" or not available and a sad face. It gave me a sad face, lemme tell you! I can see why you are very happy with how this turned out, Brenda! It's so very, very pretty with those lovely pastel colors!! Hugs, Darnell
