JG's Nook and Another CAS-ual Friday

Happy Monday friends! Hard to believe another weekend is gone - where do they go?  We didn't do anything terribly exciting. In fact, I was a bit under the weather, feeling much better now though.

Here to share a card I originally created for the current challenge over at Jay Gee's Nook. I love me some purple, so I wanted to play. Oddly enough I had a really hard time combining different shades of purple to get something I liked.  After the fact, I realized that I could also throw this in over at CAS-ual Fridays! Look at me being all efficient lol.

I knew I wanted to use the Butterfly stamp, and actually made that first. I heat embossed with white powdered and then used my Distress Inks and Perfect Pearls like watercolors to paint and fill in the image.  Then I went to bed, and finished it the next day haha.  I cut the Half and Half die, white heat embossed the sentiment, and then clear embossed the envelope pattern. I broke out my Janome Sew Mini to do a little stitching just for something extra. That sounds like a lot of work, but it didn't take very long.

  2. This is such a dramatic look, Danielle. The white card base and sentiment really 'pops' against the dark card stock. The butterfly is gorgeous as well.
