Reds, Russets, Burgundy, with BLACK

Reds, Russets, Burgundy, with BLACK
and
Play Date Cafe meets FUSION

Sometimes when I drop my boy at Karate I peruse the local thrift shop.
Always looking for a good craft bargain.
Yesterday, I found this great buy,
a LARGE
Mesh background stamp for $2.99
(Yahooooooooo!!)
So I made a card (below) and also made another one for challenges.

Designer Paper: Basic Grey
Sentiment: Mamalephant
Die: Memory Box
Ink: Brilliance Graphite Black
Stampin' Up! Ticket Corner Punch









 

I randomly stamped the large background in the center in Brilliance Pearlescent Poppy.

 


I Die cut butterflies in Black and then popped up the lovely bold paper butterflies on top.
Added a few black enamel dots.


Imaginations Stamp

Memory Box Darla Butterfly
