Fluttering

Good Morning,

I have a busy day of cleaning and organizing, but I wanted to share a card before I get to any of that. My hubby is painting my craftroom/office for me and then I will get in there and reorganize. I just might have some blog candy soon...depending on what I find while cleaning! LOL! So stay tuned for that later this week!

This card is one I made for DT work with Layers of Color. I actually created it some time ago, but this is the first chance I've had to share it. This card uses the stamp set Flutterescent, which was released this past Autumn and an older set Nature Walk.

I went for a monochromatic blue and cream color palette with a vintage feel. I created my own decorative papers using the stamps to create the backgrounds. I also used two Stampin' Up! background stamps over the Layers of Color images. I've embellished with brads, ribbon, and a flower. I wanted to keep the focus on the images, so I keep this card clean and simple.

Thanks for dropping by today! Hope you have a super Saturday. See you back here tomorrow for our Whimsy Stamps new release blog hop! Happy Stamping! :)
