A Thing of Beauty


Oh, wow. I just love color challenges! I always find that I am inspired by stamps I never thought I'd use again! That was the case with this color scheme over at CR84FN #38. Isn't that color inspiration fabulous?!

So, I reached for a stamp set I tend to OVERUSE, then slapped my hand and reached for a different set. And I'm glad I did! I never use this butterfly image--I may have used it once years ago, but I felt like it needed more use. So, I used it! And added glitter!!!

Anyway, here's the card, so you can see what I'm talking about~


A close up of the glittery details~


And a close up of the sentiment~

I love the end result! I hope you do, too! Thanks, CR84FN for another great challenge! Looking forward to the next one! I hope you join us! Happy stamping!
