Rubbernecker's Stampin' Sisterhood Challenge SS14.

It's Sunday, so that means it's time for another Rubbernecker's Stampin' Sisterhood Challenge !! 

 We have been given this awesome inspiration photo..........

I saw my layout right away in the photo and was very inspired by the colors!  Ever since I received this Butterflies are Free set, I just can't stop coloring them.  Since my computer was off to the computer doctor, I had lots of time to color a rainbow of butterflies! I really liked the green ones because they were out of the ordinary! I know there are no green butterflies around here, but there is in my mind~LOL, and aren't they just perfect for a march birthday.

I colored these beautiful butterflies up with Copics G12, G14 and G19, and added a couple of Blue Danube dots at the top of the wings.  Cut them out them Clear Embossed them, after adhereing them I popped the wings up for dimension.  A quick and easy image to create! 

Pop on over the  Rubbernecker's Stampin' Sisterhood Blog and see what my Sister's have created for you.  If you play along with us, you will have a chance at FREE STAMPIN' GOODIES so pop on over and check it out!!  We would love to see what you create!

I am entering this card into the Crazy For Challenges Spring Challenge C4C127, which is to create a spring card. I can't wait for green grass and butterflies!!

Thanks for stopping by and have a most fabulous day!!!

  3. El darling, so it was the computer doc that had to be called, huh? Geez, I think you really need to ponder what the word PICNIC really is. Sorry I havent returned your call. I've been living on the edge for so long now, I dont remember what normal is like. I will call. My calendar is looking a little better this week. I'd love to follow you on pinterest, so we need to make that happen. Now, on to your card. Ooooh, it's spring all right and it's gorgoues on top of that too. Striking white with green. I actually love all white everything and bringing the green into with your punched work will make everyone's head turn. hugs. over and out.

  4. I have a question: how come when I come to your blog, I always have to go backwards to get to the current upload. It cant be me can it? Wasn't it just you that crashed your machine? Surely, I cant be doing anything wrong. over and out.
