July CCC

Just a real quick post today.

I love Deborah's Card Chain Challenge! This month I had the pleasure of sending a card to Joy (known as dustypenny on Flickr.)


I used the Hero Arts Dots and Flowers stamp for the background and found some pretty floral ribbon I had in my stash. I colored the white flower with Tumbled Glass distress ink and added a fun, stitched brad from BasicGrey, to the center. I wanted to add one more color and thought a pop of red would be nice, so I adhered the gems and a butterfly.

Here's a close-up of the flower.


One more thing. If you'd like, you can click here to see my last post. It's a tribute to my mom.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope the start to your week is going well!

Beautiful! I sometimes forget some of the background stamps that I have but now the dots and flowers is great inspiration for me to take it out and use it again!
