Roses and a Butterfly.......


Good morning people!  We have another week under our belts.  This has been a busy week for me and suddenly I looked around and the weekend is upon us!  Before we rush headlong into the weekend, I want to share another card with you.  I used stamps from Heartfelt Creations on this one too.  (HCPC 3407 Botanical Floral 2 PreCut Set)   I also used Spellbinders Dies, Rose Creations, Grand Labels Four and Fanciful Flight to cut out the roses and the butterfly and to make the base of the card. 

Some of you have been asking what kind of paper I used to make the roses.  I'm afraid I can't be very helpful on this one.  I found this card stock at Hobby Lobby and there is no name label on it other than the color of the card stock.   It has a sheen to it and can be difficult to stamp onto, but I used my heat gun to dry the ink and then it did just fine.  It makes gorgeous flowers and shapes beautifully and I do love the sheen it has. I just spritzed the petals with a little water and then curled them the way I wanted them to look.   You know me ... I love that little bit of glitz on any project!

Well, that is about it for me this morning.  I have a full day ahead of me...lots of laundry and chores to do.  So remember, wherever you are and whatever you are doing, find a little time and "Breathe"!
