Hi friends. I've been a card making fool this week as I never post every day! I do hope that you have enjoyed what I've been posting. Today I have a non-Stampin' Up! card. It's inspired by Julie Ebersole and also qualifies for the Ways to Use It Challenge (WT387) at Splitcoast Stampers, where you're to use something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue. My card meets the challenge 100% as the old is my card stock, the new is from my tissue tape, glitter, stamp set and ink, the borrowed is from Julie Ebersole, and the blue is obviously my butterfly. Pretty cool! It's a very fun challenge and definitely a challenge.
I hope that you enjoy this card and that it inspires you. Thank you so much for stopping by to see me today and God bless you!
