What's the buzz? ...

....  Hello!!  I managed to get an hour in my craft room yesterday afternoon - so nice to sit in the warm!!  This card is one of the stash that I use for my friends in the UK, to give and get news!

Stamps: Inkadinkadoo - Morphic Bugs; Paper Smooches - Cyber Cafe
Inks: Versafine - Onyx Black; Stazon - Jet Black; Stampin' Up! - Garden Green, Summer Starfruit
Accessories: White Lustre Card; SU Card - Summer Starfruit; Vellum; Clear Embossing Powder

I used the sketch from this week's Just Us Girls Challenges - JUGS#222 and the colours from Dynamic Duos - DD#85.


I made the card from Summer Starfruit; I wasn't sure about this colour when it first came out, but now I really love it!  I cut a panel of white card and adhered it to the base.  Next I cut the vellum to size and stamped the butterfly image in Versafine and embossed with clear powder.  Next I sponged on both Summer Starfruit and Garden Green inks and then cut the panel into three.  I finished the front with a fun sentiment.  Inside I cut a panel of white card and stamped some butterflies.

I almost didn't post this card - the idea was a good one, but I don't think it quite works!  That's all for today.  I've a lot to do today - I have to drive into Northville, not something I'm looking forward to.  Hopefully, the roads will be much clearer by now and not too icy!  And I really do have to get on with some ironing - I didn't do any over the holidays and the pile I have now is quite high.  Hey ho!  See you soon.

I like how you flipped the sketch. That butterfly, swirly image works perfectly on those panels and I love your choice of colors. Thanks for playing with us at JUGS!

I hadn't realised you'd stamped this on vellum until I read your post Deborah - looks fab with the sponged colours over the top!
