Be sure to check out the DUDE TIME DOODLE BLOG HOP HERE when you are done!

Hello everyone- I have another post here to share with you today! First off, I am SO excited!!!! I taught myself to make my VERY first Blog Badge!!!For those of you who do not know, I consider myself Compu-Tarded, so this was quite the accomplishment for me!

Cyndi Spivey from Walking in His Grace contacted me and said she was looking for a Blog Badge for an upcoming Bible Study she is working on and asked if I could make one for her! So I did!!! Here it is...

The broom image was a free image I found on a Google Search engine found HERE. Check out Cyndi's Blog for some Inspiration and devotionals and her beautiful testimony!

Now for my card today!!!!  On this card, I used the Technique Junkie Newsletter April/ May 2010 Edition and the technique Background Burst Extension. This technique actually makes TWO backgrounds for you to design with!

Here is a close up of the detail in the background...

Here are the details for the card:

Stamps: Butterflies, Dianthus and Flourishes from Marks Finest papers
Paper: Rose Red, Artichoke, Plum, White
Ink: Memento Black, Copics
Accessories: Chalks, White Craft Ink, BG Image, Scallop Oval Punch, Oval Punch, White Satin Ribbon, Dew Drops, Paper Piercing Tool, Mat Pack, Dimensionals

I love ALL the details of your card, and especially the way you coloured the flower, and added the 'glitz'.

Hi Chris,

I think your card is beautiful. I love the treatment that you put on the flower and that only ink?! It looks irridescent on the butterfly and glossy on the flower! This card is lovely with this background and the bow and everything right down to the dew drops!

Congrats on making your first blog badge! I have no idea how to do that!

He IS Able,
