Strength & Hope thumped butterfly card for 411 challenge...


Yes, another butterfly card. I'm really pushing the Strength & Hope stamp set, available now, because sales of the set raise funds for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. This time around I inked the butterfly in Baja Breeze ink and then thumped it with an Early Espresso marker. Then I added 2-way glue all over and dumped on Dazzling Diamonds glitter. It's gotta sparkle, right?


I decided to add a few buttons too. The little blue flower button is adhered to the brown one with mini glue dots, then there's a big rhinestone adhered to the middle of the blue button. I like it!

I used the sketch challenge at Stamping 411. If you're up for a new challenge, try http://alacardmonkey.blogspot.com/. You can combine both this sketch and the theme challenge of Nature at my new challenge blog, A La Card Monkey.
