HEARTFELT WISHES

Good morning!  The past week or so has been a busy one for me and I haven't been able to get any cards made until yesterday.  

The Tuesday Trigger  photo for this week is so pretty:



Here is my card:


Blue and white is my favorite color combo.  I stamped the butterfly on a blue speckled paper and again on vellum.  Cut out just a portion of the wings from the vellum and adhered over the blue one.  Added blue and white liquid pearls for accent.  The embossing folder is from Sizzix. 

I will also use this card for two other challenges this week.  The challenge for A Blog Named Hero is to use our favorite stamps from Hero Arts and this Artists Butterfly is just one of mine.  I also used one of my favorite tools, the Cuttlebug, to emboss the background so this suits the challenge this week at Simon Says Stamp also. 

Have a wonderful day!
