FMS #184

It's been a week since I've had time to create any cards. I've been working on 60+ baby shower invitations for my niece's shower in June. So very glad my MISTI arrived just before I started them. If you're still undecided about getting this awesome tool, I highly recommend it. It truly is the Most Incredible Stamping Tool Invented.

I needed a card for my son's girlfriend so I made this based on the current sketch at Freshly Made Sketches. The yellow strip of polka dot paper is from Lawn Fawn Let's Polka 6x6 paper pad. I also added a sliver of black CS for some added interest. A butterfly from SU Papillon Potpourri was stamped with Cracked Pistachio distress ink, fussy cut and adhered with foam tape. The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp Dies & Stamps Set - Balloons.

I am entering this card into:

     CAS-ology Week 144 - Flight (my butterfly)
     Inkspirational Challenge #81 - Space (lots of white space on my card and where butterflies fly)
     Seize the Birthday - Anything Goes

As always, thanks for visiting and leaving a comment. I love reading them. Enjoy your weekend.



  1. You had me at the butterfly, Pam! Wonderfully pretty; delightfully "spacious"! Thank you so much for joining the Inkspirational gallery!
