My card today is my submission for Chic Challenges CC 04.


I used a combination of the Best of Butterflies stamp set … along with the Artistic Etchings Stamp Set that will soon be retiring.

I used the French Script Background stamp on the Crumb Cake card stock (you could use En Francais Background) with Basic Gray ink.  I also sponged the edges with Basic Gray ink.

This picture shows how I added another butterfly using Stampin Dimensionals.

Personal  Note

I’m so very sorry!!! I’m seriously behind on everything! On top of personal stuff …. I spent over 6 hours yesterday dealing with a printer / internet issue.  I’m happy to say Chase fixed it.  I can’t believe I didn’t ask for his help sooner ..what was I thinking? He works at Geek Squad!! 

Thanks & have a great day!!
