Off the Wall Craftiness and Wee Memories

Hi Friends,

I hope you’ve gone to see the full sets of the new Lawn Fawn sets! They are so much fun I know you’re going to love them.

So lately I’ve not played in some of my favorite challenges, and I’m determined to fix that! Today’s card is for the fun challenge that Kim runs at Off the Wall Craftiness. The challenge was to use the colors light yellow, light green, and light pink. And, I this card fits the Wee Memories Challenge to use butterflies on a card! So it's a two for one! Love that.

Here’s my card:


It’s a pretty simple card. I just stamped the background on the lemon cardstock, cut a strip of the green, stamped the sentiment, tied a ribbon around it. Then I stamped and colored a butterfly, cut it out, and applied a little bling on the wing, and glued the center down so that the wings would pop off the page. I also drew on the antennae because the others that were stamped were amputated in the cutting process;) I have a friend who was recently in a car accident who will be getting this card.

Oh, and notice that sentiment… it’s from the new Lawn Fawn set, Sophie’s sentiments.

Thanks for stopping by and remember keep commenting thru Friday for your chance to win one of the Lawn Fawn new releases :)

Hugs and blessings.


Stamps: Hero Arts background and butterfly, Lawn Fawn sentiment
