A card for fun ;)

Well, what is a girl to do when it is vacation and new stamps arrive in the mail?  How about when you spend a day sick on the couch watching YouTube tutorials?  Here is what you do... you make 2 lists.  One list is things to make and the other is things to buy.  So, I tried to shop.  That didn't go well considering I am still not feeling well and I then worked on a card.  I made tons of mistakes but I had fun trying!  In fact one of the flowers on this is covering an eyelet nightmare.  When creating this card I followed a sketch found at My Creative Time for their Throwback Thursday challenge.  They want us to create without Cricut and Gypsy this week.  All I wanted was to cut some butterflies... I hate rules :)  In reality I love rules I am a strange one but I hated them when doing this.

 Here is what I did:

I started with white paper and blended dye inks with my new "Ink Blending Tool" I bought this morning ;).
Then I used VersaMark to stamp the sentiment from K Andrew stamps "Amazing You" set on and sprinkled with silver embossing powder then I heated it up!
The flowers are from Prima flowers which I am beginning to adore.
The punch is EK success and today I finally figured out how to line it up.  I am a total crafting misfit... you should see me trying to do stuff!

Thanks for looking! On Tuesday's I reveal a sneak peak at my 300 follower give away.  HOWEVER, in celebration of nothing in particular there will be a special installment tomorrow so make sure to come back!  I never want followers that follow me for blog candy and give-aways.  BUT if you like what you see I would love the compliment of you following me ;)

Other challenges:
Crafty Creations- sparkle (My sentiment is sparkle and I love it!)
Creative Craft Challenges- making your own backing paper

  2. Great card...I really like how you stamped around your primas! I am going to try the challenge I guess it's time to dust off my punches!

  3. This is very lovely. I have been known to "cover up" mistakes also. I think everyone does that
    Great job on the card though. I love how you used the stamp

  9. This turned out really pretty, and I can't tell you how many times I have covered up a mistake with ribbon or flowers or whatever it takes. Beautiful job. I love the ink blending and great choice of colors. Hugs- Glora
