Butterflies, Roses, and Bugaboo

     This is another of the cards I found time to make last Sunday.  It's frilly, feminine, and has tons of glittery bling!  The digital image is from Bugaboo Stamps (Catch the Bug -- Anything Goes theme) and I used the sketch from Stella Says Sketch.

     Colors came from the inspiration photo at Stamptacular Sundays and the image is colored with Touch Twin markers, matted with black CS and polka dot dp from DCWV - Linen Closet stack.  In fact, all the dp happens to be from that same stack, and the background dp is embossed and glittery.  The sentiment is a clear sticker from who-knows-where!  To bling everything up, I added Sparkle 'n' Sprinkle glitters to the roses and the butterfly, "Fascination" and "Misty Blue," respectively.

     Other challenges:
Art Impressions Stamps -- Seeing Spots (polka dot dp)
Come and Get It Challenge -- Flowers and Butterflies, Oh My!
Charisma Cardz -- Bling
Crafty Ann's -- Butterflies and Flowers
One Stitch at a Time -- Use a digi
Sentimental Sundays -- Show me your spots (polka dot dp)

    By the time you read this, I'll be well underway with my summer teaching and loving it!  I have missed the classroom these past few years and I know I'm going to love being back at the blackboard, so to speak.  :-D  I hope your week is going well and that you're finding plenty of crafting time.  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie
