Hi & Hello!
Today's card took me about 5 minutes to make but looks quite elegant I think (hope). It was created for the SCS Color Challenge. Talk about throwing us for a loop today- we were to create a white card with only one layer. This is one layer for me, girls. Humph this was hard!
The beautiful butterfly used is a sneak peek of a new Sweet 'n Sassy Stamp set In His Time that is will be released on the 15th.
I stamped the main image onto 120 lb. Classic Solar White Neenah cardstock, then stamped the same image onto 80lb Classic Solar White Neenah cardstock. The 80lb cardstock is better to color Copics with as it doesn't soak up as much ink, and is easier to cut detailed butterflies with.
I left the base image uncolored as I think it makes a pretty statement that works well with the sentiment. I like the one pop of color.
The colored butterfly is attached to the base layer with a foam dot. I added Stickles in Waterfall and Crystal for some sparkle.
The Satin ribbon is by Stampin' Up!; the two copper crystals are by K&Co.
For another sneak peek of this gorgeous set you can check out the BasicGrey website (!) If you do not want to hunt the card it will be posted on my blog on the 15th along with the recipe :)
Speaking of recipes, I have been typing away on my Lettuce Wraps post but it is a lengthy recipe. It takes a lot of chopping and doing this and that, but the results are so yummy it's worth it. Look for that as soon as I can get done typing it lol.
