A Card Challenge

Today I have a card for a Challenge on A Day in the Life of The Paper Poppy. The layout is given on her blog and you can use Stampendous stamps and also enter on their blog for a chance to win. So this is the card that I created:

This butterfly stamp by Stampendous, called Ruffled Butterfly, is one of my favorites. I LOVE this stamp. So what I did here with it was stamp it onto Basic Grey Lemonade paper using black archival ink. Then I cut the butterflies out and used some frosted lace Stickles on some of the dots in the middle just to give them a little sparkle. Then I attached them to the card with some pop dots for dimension.

All the patterned paper I used is from the Basic Grey Lemonade collection. I really love the look of that. Next I cut out the word "Mother" on my Silhouette. I used some dimensional gel that I got at a scrapbook con, I can't remember what they call it, and then I sprinkled some really fine glitter into it and let it dry. I think this gives the letters such a pretty look. Once everything was dry I ran it through my Xyron sticker maker and then attached it to the card. I love using that for the little things I cut out on the Silhouette, it makes my life much easier and it's not messy like spray adhesive is.

For finishing accents I used some shimmery ribbon I had left over and tied a bow. I attached this to the card used vellum tape since it's so fine and see-thru. Vellum tape works wonders in these situations. I also used some pearl bling accents on the card just for a little more pop.

So there you have it. I hope you like it! This will make a great Mother's day card I think.

Happy Scrapping!
