This card is for the LNS ATC challenge. Card base is Whisper White with a layer of Marina Mist tinted vellum that I put through the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder. The ATC was created with Night of Navy Cardstock layered with the new Marina Mist cardstock (with a wide oval punched out of the center) to allow the double vellum butterfly to sit. The larger of the vellum butterflies was embossed with the Perfect Polka Dot embossing folder. The smaller was embossed with the Finial Press embossing folder which had been coated with Night of Navy ink and put through the Big Shot. Both butterflies were cut out with the #2 Butterfly Sizzix Die and the Big Shot. I used the Scallop border punch for the left side trim and whisper white 1" circles to create the scallop trim for the right side. The sentiment is from the new Artistic Etching set available July 1, 2010.

This beautiful card was stamped with the new Elements of Style stamp set. Although Stampin' Up makes wood mounted stamps, I prefer to use the cling mount on clear blocks. This image was colored with Stampin' Write Markers, then distressed and I antiqued the edges with Soft Suede ink. I hope you like it!
This card was created at a workshop in Sequim, Washington in May. The event was hosted by my upline Sandi MacIver of Portland, Or. We had tons of fun and I met many wonderful people. Thanks, Sandi....you're the best!
