Another card today!

Hello bloggers,

Life is good because I am getting to blog to my heart's content... what else does a little blogger like me want!!! Lol.

Here is a card I made yesterday and finished off today. 


Base card stock - light blue and distressed with grape (American craft pigment stamp pad)
White strip - punched with MS border punch and distressed with grape and Tim Holtz broken china
Also coloured in with Sakura metallic purple and silver pen
 Pop up butterfly border at the bottom - with a pop up punch and glittered
Flower - homemade by me using Sizzix flower dies and Carla craft punches - glittered as well
Flower centre - rhinestone from stash
Flourish stamp - Inkadinkado and stamped with Tim Holtz broken china

This is a closeup of the flower - a pretty hopeless picture!!!

Am entering this card for the following challenges: - anything goes (my second entry this week) - distressing and/or use paint - make your own flower

Thanks for all the inspiration!
