I opened my email this morning & received a very lovely surprise!  Over on Stamping 411, my card ended up being one of the Operators Picks.You can view it Here

As usual they have another great sketch, so why not have a go yourself, it is so much fun!  Without further ado, here is my card for the new challenge. 

Close-Up -
For today's card, I used my dauber and Baja Blue ink.  I daubed the ink directly onto Very Vanilla cardstock, then loading my image with Versamark, I stamped over the sponging.  I then applied white embossing powder over the image, and heated with my heat tool.  I used a tissue to wipe over the image.

As I am loving the effect the Shimmer Paint is giving to my cards, I poured 2-3 drops into a small spray bottle & filled with water.  I then lightly sprayed over the image - you can just make the shimmer out!

Using the Beautiful Wings Embosslit Die and Baja Breeze, I cut the butterflies out with the Bigshot.  I very lightly sprayed the butterflies with the Shimmer Mist prior to adhering to the card.

With a scrap piece of Soft Suede cardstock and the Thanks Embosslit Die, I again used the Bigspot.  I then cut around the die, sprayed with Shimmer Paint & applied directly to the card.

Supplies -
Stamp Set - Just Believe
Ink - Baja Breeze, Versamark
Cardstock - Baja Breeze, Soft Suede, Very Vanilla
DSP - Elegant Soiree
Embosslite Dies - Thanks, Beautiful Wings
Accessories - Multipurpose Liquid Glue, Taffeta Ribbon - Very Vanilla, Shimmer Paint, Heat Tool, Bigshot, Embossing Buddy, Embossing Powder - White

Until next time, Enjoy!
