Flowers feed the soul.

Happy Friday everyone! I want to apologise to all of you for being such a bad blogger lately. It's not that I don't have anything to show you, it's just that I am having a hard time of trying to think of what to write in my posts! Now that it is summer, I have all three girls home with me and when it is nice we like to spend as much time as possible outside. Needless to say, we have also been going to bed VERY late and when I finally have a moment to blog, I'm too brain dead to do it lol!

I am going to try to be better and at least post cards everyday. You guys won't mind if there isn't any chit chat do you?? Don't worry, I will still include the card details for you :)

I made this card last night and was pleasantly surprised by how it turned out. I think that it may be one of my recent favorites!

Card Recipe
*I used the stamp set Poppies for this card
*The front panel was cut out using Nestabilities, then sponged and stamped with the poppies in Chocolate Chip.
* The butterfly was stamped into Versamark then into Chocolate Chip, embossed with clear powder and watercolored using Cameo Coral and Ruby Red inks
* Butterfly was cut out before I added Diamond Glaze to the wings to help it stand out.
*The sentiment was stamped in Chocolate Chip
*The Nestie panel was adhered to the card base using dimensionals
*I used a corner scallop punch for the corners of the card base.
