Spread your Wings

Happy Monday everyone!!!  I am very sad that somehow... in the midst of all my MOM duties... I forgot to get something ready for the Stamp TV Mix It Up Monday Challenge!! :-(   It's been a busy week for me in that I was on the committee to help get things in order for my son's 8th grade prom which was Friday evening.  We had meetings every night and most often stayed late to work on things.  But... though it was tiring... the dance was a HUGE success!!!  My son said he had so much fun, it was thinking , "this MUST be a dream!" LOL  So... today I am sharing a card I created that really makes me happy as well.

I DO hope to hop on over to Stamp TV and  join in on Donna Baker's Mix It Up Monday Challenge!  She's going "Shabby Chic" today and I can't wait to see all the awesome creations submitted!!  Be sure to add your tag STVMONDB1 to your upload to be entered into the drawing for a stamp set of your choice from Gina K Designs valued at up to $23.95!!  Remember, you don't have to use a Gina K Designs stamp, but if you do, your name goes into the drawing TWICE!!!  Have fun and good luck!!

I LOVE the butterfly in the Stamp TV Kit, "Springtime Silhouettes" but with so many other awesome images in the set, I hadn't had a chance to ink it up yet!  I began my card with a Pure Luxury Sweet Mango card base.  I layered on some Lemon Drop and Black Onyx.  Next I added that awesome Echo Park - A Walk in the Park DP with the bright butterflies (LOVE it!).  I added a horizontal layer of Sweet Mango and stamped my sentiment on it.  My butterfly was stamped on White and I colored it using my Memento Markers using the "thumping" technique for most of the coloring.  I added some glue to just the body part and raised up the wings a bit to give it dimension. 

Thanks for stopping by today and don't forget to join in on the Mix It Up Monday Challenge!!!  Have a great day!! *smile*
