Priceless in Blue

Since I went pink, this probably should be a pink card but it's not. It's heavily influenced by Trudee's Card. I'm not quite the stamp artist that she is and I swore I saw the card and then went by memory but this is what mere mortals can do that make you go wow (artists like Trudee make you gasp and have to gather yourself to get a breath)

Here are the details: The card base is Soft Sky and when I make this one again, it'll be the Textured card stock since it's so much nicer. I then took a piece of 5 1/4" by 4" piece of Blue Bayou cardstock and stamped the big swirly in Craft White along with the small flower and circle in Blue Bayou on this piece. I stamped the butterflies on Shimmery White cardstock with Blue Bayou Classic ink and then cut them out. I took a rectangular piece of Shimmery White and stamped the smaller swirly on this piece with Soft Sky. I then lightly sponged and daubered the edges with Soft Sky. I mounted the cut out butterflies with dimensionals on top of this piece and then mounted this piece with dimensionals on top of the background piece.

I stamped the Priceless sentiment in Blue Bayou on a scrap of Shimmery White and then punched it out with my large SU oval punch. I then lightly sponged and daubed the edges with Soft Sky. I wrapped some Soft Sky Double Stitched ribbon around this base and then mounted the sentiment on top with dimensionals. Since I didn't cut the ribbon that long, I folded the edge back and attached a brad versus trying to tie a knot or ribbon and I'm rather pleased with how this turned out.

I was gonna add more glitter and maybe some hardware around the sentiment but it seems to work this way for now.

Thanks for visiting and I plan to celebrate World Card Making Day when I get up in the morning :-)
