Hero Arts Blog!

Happy Thursday!

It's a happy day for me and my hostess sisters, for sure! We are being featured on the Hero Arts blog today! We each made a card for the Keeping in Touch theme this month. We also decided that we should each use a butterfly on our cards. Here is mine.



I won't go into too much detail here on my blog. It's fairly self-explanatory, but if you are interested in finding out more details, visit the Hero Arts blog and click on the instructions under my card. I will mention that it's a bit difficult to see but I used the Graph stamp for the background. The different stamps and techniques I used on this card made it so fun to create. Distressed edges, layering, embossed resist and a little shading were all used, and I really like the way it turned out.

Thanks for coming by on this special, fun day! I truly appreciate your visits and comments!
