Sunshine and Blue Skies Challenge, FLLCJUN10

As Flourishes  readies to unveil new stamps this week, this great stamp company is hosting a color challenge--Sunshine and Blue Skies.  Create a card using any combination of blue and yellow, and you have a chance to win the entire June release!
The paper, the butterfly, and the sentiment are just right for this  fanciful summery card.

1.Make an A2 card base from Smokey Shadow cardstock.
2. Cut 3 strips of patterned paper and sew onto a piece of Lemon Tart cardstock.
3. Die cut label and stamp sentiment from Pure Poppy stamp set with London Fog ink. Thread with  lace trim and attach to piece.
4. Attach piece to card base.
5. Stamp butterfly from Fanciful Flourishes with blue ink on Lemon Tart cs,cut out, attach with dimension tape.  Place tape only in the middle of butterfly and gently lift wings.

Do you think the bird is calling out a warning about the giant mutant butterfly?

  1. What a gorgeous card Cammie! I love that pretty paper, and the lace and butterfly, everything comes together to make such a lovely card! And good luck, hope you win that June release :)

  2. You cracked me up with the ending of your post! I did not think anything was out of place or the size was to much. It is a beautiful card.

  3. What a sweet card and wonderful for the challenge--hope you win! Funny, I love blue and yellow together yet can't remember using them on a card.

  4. Cammie this is BEAUTIFUL! I love your papers and that gorgeous (not mutant) butterfly! The crocheted lace and your stitching are the perfect finishing touches! This is a card for the recipient to TREASURE!

  5. Beautiful vintage feel to your card! I think that bird is just singing a song of gladness that there are butterflies! Love it!

  6. Very pretty. Love the vintage feel to it and those colors together too!

  7. Cammie you sly gal you! See? This is why it pays to read through an entire post. Had me laughing and as usual, the family thinks I'm nuts cracking up holding my laptop. I think I saw that butterfly hitting up on our outside light last night. . .

  8. Cammie this is beautiful. I love what you did with this set and the paper.. Great job.

  9. Love the Websters Pages paper...beautiful card!

  10. Love the vintage feel of this one Cammie... a true beauty!
