The stamps I used in this card are from Stampland Stamps... I used glossy card stock and a big leaf stamp that I inked in kaleidacolor ink (Autumn Leaves). I stamped the leaves around the outside of the card-stock and then stamped the face image in the middle using basic black. Then I brushed on green marvy ink over the top. I layered a background border of leaves stamped the same way and added corners and a butterfly punch that I put dots on the wings...
I needed a break from Christmas card making this evening so I made sunflowers... The Sunflowers are from Gina K a year of flowers. I used a mixed of blues and pattern blue papers along with a cuttlebug background. I used pop dots and layered the sunflowers along with stampin up corner punches, and three types of ribbon.
Thanks for looking... Hope Everyone Had a Fantastic Thanksgiving!!!

The background is made from two nestibilities, I used Liquid applique for the grass and some marvy ink was brushed on for the sky. I colored the butterfly with watercolor pencils and then clear embossed used pop dots to attach. Then added beads for body. I must have a dirty lens again on my camera because the top of the right wing came out blurred. It's time to cook dinner so I can't retake picture... so this one will just have to do....
It's almost Monday I know everyone looks forward to that....lol But have a great week!!!
This card was made for the SCS Inspiration Challenge... Wow my head is still spinning from all the SCS Comments I've gotten on this card ...32...and still going!!!!
The Inspiration was by Don Li-Leger, his design style is called Asian Fusion. I grabbed my closest stamp set by flourishes and used a flower stem like stamp ... I don't have bamboo,grass or anything else that is Asian inspired but I did have some Asian word stamps so that was a big plus. I was not sure how this card was going to come together I just knew I needed 3 different shapes and 3 different colors, spending most of my time trying to get the colors just right. My three shapes ended up being bigger then I wanted so after I cut them down and placed them on the card, OOPS I saw my cut was a bit off....shhhh don't tell anyone.....
Thanks so much for looking at all my Challenge cards this week!!! I had so much fun being involved that I'm looking forward to giving it all a try again...
