BIRDS AND BUTTERFLIES BACKGROUND WHIMSY


Hello Friends,
Happy Tuesday! I had some time to "play" yesterday and created this card using a few challenges! I even broke outside of my comfort level and used orange and yellow!! I found these cute little butterfly stickers from The Paper Studio that I have had laying around the past few weeks and decided to use those to help embellish this card...

I used the Sweet Stop Sketch SSS64 for my layout/ design. 

I used the Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge #47 based on Matthew 11:28 "Come to me, all you who labor and are burdened, and I will give you rest." The challenge was to Make a card that symbolizes what brings you rest or peace. For example, it could be flowers, an ocean, music, mountains, sitting with a friend, or just reading a book.


I chose the I BRAKE FOR STAMPS Birds and Butterflies plate... I love nature, and the beauty of GOD's creation...I also love creating cards using techniques and this card uses the Technique Junkie Newsletter technique called Background Whimsy, Dye Ink Method. I love using the Technique Junkie Newsletter as it gives such great detail with pictures!!!
