Thanks so much...

Hello blog...remember me? I have been MIA, but that seems to happen on this blog from time to time.

So, here's my card. I intented this card to be a card for this week's class, but alas class had to be canceled...so, now it's just a random card. Sorry about the pic, it's late and I'm tired.

I was inspired by this week's Shabby Tea Room Challenge #58 and the sketch is from All Things Unity Challenge #29. (just flipped it and made it a long and narrow card)

I got the idea for this card in a couple of places from this month's Stampin' Success magazine.

What a handy little magazine that turns out to be when you need a quick idea for a class or workshop.

The next picture is a close up of the little detail that makes this card special. in my opinion, at least.

I love the color's and the punched images...it screams Spring to me, even though the weather outside does not. :-(

Not a lot of stamping here...which makes me happy. I love stamping, but the versatility of these products just make card making so easy.

I sponged the butterflies just to give them some depth, popped up the panel and added some bling, because bling makes me happy. So, TFL!
