Flutter by Wednesday Challenge and Photo of the Day

Hey Friends!!! This is my second post for the day! Lately, I've been overlapping my posts because there's a lot of things going on in blog land and well, one card post a day isn't working. I made this card the other day for the Flutter by Wednesday challenge but I have backload of cards that I needed to post. Well, there's going to be a new challenge at Flutter by Wednesday tomorrow so I needed to post this today. Be sure to scroll down to my previous post for the other card I posted today of the Anya/Ian card and Crayon Box Project.

This is another of my cards that evolved. I started off with the Stampin Up image from the retired "Nature's Secret" stamp set. I stamped the image using a "Spectrum" stamp pad. . .you know the multi-colored ink pads. I then heat embossed the image with SU Iridescent Ice embossing powder. You can't see it in the photo but the image is very sparkly.

Then I remembered the Flutter by Wednesday challenge and added the butterfly which is a chipboard by K&CO. . .I also added the scallop frame using the K&Co chipboard embellishments.

Anyway, stop by Danni's Dream blog site to check out the Flutter by Wednesday challenge.
Hope y'all have a fantastic day!!

Photo of the Day

Love this Photo

Yesterday was my husband's birthday and we headed to the winery. It was really nice. We had a great dinner. . .I had a yummy rib eye. I also made a mini album for my husband which I'll post tomorrow. Anyway, before I left, I took a photo of the entrance of the restaurant. I love how the photo came out. To me, it looks like a painting. Anyway. . .stop by my photo blog "Photo Inspirations" and check out the other photos I took of the entrance of the restaurant and the other photos I post there!!
