Hello Friend - Bloggers Challenge (Metal Challenge)

Happy Bloggers Challenge Friday! Thanks to those who played along with the Love is in the Air Challenge, the challenge this week is Metal (use Metal or Metallic card stock/embossing powders, etc.)

Inspired by this sketch, I used stamps, dies and the Blushing Rose Paper Collection from Our Daily Bread Designs to create my card.


All papers are from the Blushing Rose Paper Collection, I sponged the edges with Ranger Gathered Twigs Distress Ink.  The quote is from Quote Collection 4, stamped in Coffee Archival Ink on Vanilla card stock and die cut using the Matting Circles Dies, layered on an Espresso panel that was die cut with the Circle Ornaments Die.  To embellish I die cut the small heart from metal using the Ornate Hearts Dies, buffing the embossed area to expose the silver metal.  I also added butterflies using the Stamped by - Butterfly Mini that were stamped on scrap pieces of the pattern paper, Zva Creative Silver Metallic Gems and a flourish cut from Moss card stock using the Fancy Foliage Die.

Details:
Stamps - Our Daily Bread Designs Quote Collection 4, Stamped by - Butterfly Mini

I love your card design, Lisa...it's gorgeous! I never thought to use that little butterfly from the mini Stamped By stamp, but I'll be using it in the future! Thanks for the inspiration! Hugs!
