Good morning blog readers and Create with Connie & Mary subscribers! If you are a subscriber and reading this today, how have you enjoyed the celebrate nature theme all of the designers had for you? Wasn't everything awesome! Well today for the Saturday Challenge, I am continuing with the nature theme. We used these colors this week for our color challenge:

  • Crumb Cake
  • Daffodil Delight
  • Marina Mist
  • Not Quite Navy

Take a peek at my Swallowtail card below:

This is a gorgeous plus-size butterfly image that not only can you use on a card, why not try it on a scrapbook page as a focal point?

If you look closely, you'll notice a little bit of glossy-ness on my stamped image. I first stamped him on Daffodil Delight Cardstock using VersaMark Ink and then sprinkled Black Embossing Powder and heat set with my Heat Tool.

I also colored my Pearl Jewels with a black Permanent marker and glue them in place. How cute is that?Make sure you visit Create with Connie & Mary to see what everyone else is up to this week. And...you can still sign up for the subscription edition!
