Sunshine & Blue Skies....

Hey all! Yep, another challenge for you this week! This one is to get ready for Flourishes June Release! So, here are the deets on the challenge! As Flourishes gets ready to unveil a whole new crop of stamps, the DT is challenging you to share a bit of what we love about summer ---those bright blue skies and sunny days! It's a Release Week Color Challenge that could have you walking away with our entire June release! To be in the running, all you need to do is use some combination of blue and yellow. It can be any shade!

I chose more of a turquoise and yellow for my creation!
This card is really pretty simple. I picked some polka dotted decorative paper, cut it into a rectangle and then stamped my image onto the decorative paper. I had been wanting to try this ever since Maki did a tutorial over on the Flourishes Blog about really making the most of your decorative paper. You can check out her post HERE. After I stamped the Gerbera Daisies onto my background paper, I stamped it a second time so that I could pop up part of the daisy over my sentiment strip. I used the Water, Spring Greens and Daffodil Copic Collections grouped by Flourishes to color. Then, add a butterfly on some punched circles... and you're almost done! I accented the dot on the butterfly's wings with an Inkssentials pen. Add a scalloped border and some paper piercing and.. done!
Here's a close up of my little butterfly. I just love this lil guy! As you can see, I stamped and colored the front wing twice so that I could pop up one of his lil wings.
Ok, wanna make time to play? To enter, you have until Friday, June 11th at 5 PM EST for your chance to win! Use Flourishes stamps if you have them, but if you don’t, please play along anyway. If you upload to SCS, please use the keyword FLLCJUN10. Keep in mind, in order to be eligible, you need to link your creation here on today's post using the Inlinkz linky. Good luck! We can’t wait to see those sunny and blue skies!
