Good morning everyone. I hope your summer is going well. Finally the month of June has brought us "better" weather. The month of May was so depressing as we could not seem to have more than one day of sunshine at a time and it brought rain almost every single day.

Today's color challenge at Create with Connie & Mary brings butterflies and you can join us anytime during this whole week:

It's not often I can create a card without "Whisper White" or "Very Vanilla" mixed in somewhere!

The "Hope & Strength" stamp set lends itself to the most beautiful & elegant butterfly I've ever seen. Even though it needs to be hand-cut, Stampin' Up!'s Paper Snips are the greatest. And the new Melon Mambo Embossing Powder, what a great color!

Card Supplies:
  • Cardstock: River Rock, Elegant Eggplant
  • Inks: VersaMark
  • Stamp Set: Strength & Hope, Heard from the Heart
  • Accessories: Melon Mambo Embossing Powder, Rhinestone Brads
  • Tools: Ribbon Punch, Heat Tool, Paper Snips, Stampin' Dimensionals
