Live Every Moment

Hello Blog Friends - it seems to be a few days between visits lately - we have had a lot going on and I am working on projects - just not ones that I can show just yet, plus I am working on a few Workshops I have coming up...always something happening!

I created this card for my DD2's birthday earlier this week - not the traditional birthday card - but I love the sentiment and she loves the colours - so that has to be good - right!?  The background paper was created in August last year - at the Art-is-You Mixed Media Australian Roadshow.  The lovely Michelle Brown spent an evening getting everyone familiar with Gelli Plates - it was a lot of fun, but definitely time to use the patterned paper now! LOL!

The butterfly is from a Penny Black Inc Collage and has been fussy cut, coloured using Chameleon Art Pens and had some of the fabulous Want2Scrap bling added.

The sentiment is by IndigBlu and has been stamped using Imagine Crafts 'featuring' Tsukineko Memento Dye Ink in Tuxedo Black.  This has been layered into the Fleur de Elegance Spellbinders® Nestabilities® Decorative Accents, which has been cut using the Spellbinders® Grand Calibur® Die Cutting and Embossing Machine.  The flowers are from my stash!   Scrapbook by Adhesives by 3L E-Z Adhesive Runner and Crafty Foam Tape have been used on this card.

This card is for the following challenges:
