Spring/Summer CLC Bloghop Day 3

Here we are, day 3 of the Spring/Summer CLC bloghop!  What has been your fave things so far?  Mine has been taking extra time to indulge in a little coffee and crafting and seeing all the creations.  Now what I need to do is get commenting!  I never get through them all, but try to get to as many as I can. 

So here is what I have for you today, a fun creation with a brand new stamp set I just purchased from Super Sponsor Drive by Crafts.  And also a sentiment from Super Sponsor Ellen Houston.


Now here is what I love about this card first and foremost, this gal reminds me of my friend Denise, who is sweet, kind and a total fashonista (not sure why she likes me since I am a frump! LOL)!  Such a beautiful woman and a beautiful image to use in her honor.  This image is from The Greeting Farm.  I stamped it on watercolor paper and used a combo of Zigs and Spectrum Noir  Aquablend pencils to give here these vivacious colors.  The background is also WC paper, I added some SN sparkle pen to the background and cut in these butterflies from the Crafter's Companion/Sara Davies Flutterby Collection.  (The great thing about this die is that you get to keep the butterflies and use them on something else!)  Lastly, I stamped the sentiment using a stamp by Julie Ebersole for Ellen Houston. 

Here is a close up so you can see the butterflies a little better with the white behind. 



This isn't my typical style, I usually go for building scenes, but I am happy I tried something different and like the outcome. 

Time to get on back to the hop and see what new creations ya'll have been making!
