Shall we have a look at what I came up with this week? I have to warn you ;D, this is a very CAS card for me, but I thought I challenge myself a bit and go outside my box of lots of embellishments,hehe!!

Are you ready? 


Paper:     PTI Vintage Cream, DCWV Mariposa Designer Paper and Mariposa card stock pad

Stamps: ODBD Peace   from the Full of Grace Collection

Ink: VersaFine Onyx Black,

Accessories: Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels 6, Petite Ovals Large, Recollections half pearls, Filigree gold tone butterfly (purchased at FireMountainGems), May Arts ribbon, foam tape

What do you think?  I think this card would actually fit in a regular envelope ;D.

Are those creative wheels turning yet or would you like some more inspiration?  Check out what





have come up with.

Well, this is it for me for today, we have a big day for the "Women" of our church today. We are having a "Day at the Pool" just for the ladies. Since we are having it at a hotel and not at a local pool we had quite a few ladies sign up. I'll let you all know how this event turned out....I am so looking forward to fellowship with these ladies.

Oh, a quick reminder....remember that this challenge will run for TWO WEEKS!!! More details can be found at the ODBD Blog

Thanks for stopping by today and have a fabulous and creative weekend!!

Hugs and blessings,

Thank you for visiting my blog. I truly appreciate your kind words. I noticed your card on ODBD and was drawn to it because of the way you used DP to be one of the focal points. The way you put the butterfly into your bow is so unique.

Mary said...

Your card is beautiful! What a brilliant idea using background paper with birds on it. I love your bow and your beautiful butterfly.

I hope that your day at the pool with the other women went great. I'm glad that your getting out and doing something fun that is just for you. :)
