have a delightful day

Hello, my friends.  Today my card is quite simple.  Since I ordered all the newly released distress stains (except for picket fence, which wasn't part of the deal) last night, I decided I should open the ones I have and use them.  So that's what I did, well... I used ONE anyway on my card.  I swiped wild honey three times across the white card stock.  So fun how quickly the stains fill in the area and the colors have so much depth.  Then I stamped the butterfly and sentiment (vintage butterflies from Cornish Heritage Farms) with jet black stazon.  I backed the piece with black card stock.

I used the same distress stain to dye a piece of white ribbon, since I didn't have any the right color.  I dried it with my heat gun and tied it around the black card stock.  I used summer sun for the card base.

To finish off the card, I added some little half pearls.

My card fits the ways to use it challenge and the free for all challenge on SCS this week. 

I hope to get some more stamping done later today, because it's a mini VSN on SCS.  What's VSN?  It's a fun, fast-paced stamping marathon, with a new challenge every hour and just 45 minutes to complete each one.  For more information, click the link and check it out.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  Have a wonderful weekend.
