Caardvarks Hero Challenge

Hey all! I'm really loving getting to participate in several challenges lately...so fun! This card was made using a sketch from the Caardvark's "did you ever know that you're my hero" Challenge. I think the sketch is super fun, and is one that could be used over and over again! I told you I loved the new butterflies from the Occasions Mini...avaliable for ordering April 1st!

I love this retired SU paper...I love everything about it! I've only got a couple of sheets left and wanted to see if I could get a few more uses out of them! I started with an Old Olive card base. The main panel is a strip of dsp, layered on tempting turquoise cardstock. I had some FUN with my new Circle Scissor Plus(CSP)...more to come on that later! I cut some circles-the white, the artichoke, and the tempting turquoise circle outline with my new CSP and that was delightful! I stamped the little "label" outline(from the good friends stamp set...soon friends, very soon!!) with old olive ink in my white circle and attached it and the turquoise outline on my card. I then stamped the little "label" outline again with old olive, then added the friend sentiment stamped with tempting turquoise and cut it out with scissors. I mounted it on the almost artichoke circle-and then came the butterflies! I stamped two olive and one turquoise butterflies. I added glitter from my supernova glitter packs--olive and aqua. I just used my 2 way glue pen to add the glitter, then attached my butterflies with dimensionals to my card!

We're really counting down the days now...only 7 more "sleeps" in Germany! It will be sad to leave all the people we love here, but going home and being closer to our family will be great!!

Thanks so much for stopping by!! I'll do my best to be back Monday!:) Have a great day!!
