Wishing you happiness

Happy Sunday! This week's Featured Stamper at Splitcoaststampers is Julia, a.k.a Artystamper (<--- make sure you to check out her gallery, she's simply amazing!).

There's so much cards I wanted to CASE'd (copy and share) but this card caught my eye and because I have couple of paint chips that I took recently when I was at Home Depot, I thought it would be perfect for this challenge.

The main image is from Stampin' Up Garden Silhouettes set and stamped on the paint chip using Basic Black Craft Ink, and once it's dry (with a little help of the embossing heat tool), added mini prima flowers with black brads and matted it with basic black card stock. I matched the paint chip with brocade blue card stock and run through cuttlebug using Birds and Swirls embossing folder. The butterfly is a punch by Martha Stewart from Michael's. The sentiment is from Stampin' Up Summer by the Sea and was stamped on very vanilla card stock and punched using 1 3/8" circle and layered it with basic black card stock scallop punched and raised with stamping dimensional.

Ink: Basic Black Craft Ink

Accessories: Cuttlebug, Birds and Swirls embossing folder, paint chip, mini prima flowers, black brads, Butterfly punch by Martha Stewart, 1 3/8 circle punch and scallop punch

Catherine, this card is seriously GORGEOUS!!! I absolutely ADORE it.
Girl, you really should be a "proper" demo because you are completely amazing. I am so glad I found your blog and I really do think you need to share your talent with people out there in the 'real' world too.
Big hugs
