Brads & Butterflies...and happy 10-year anniversary!

Hi everyone, and TGIF!! First, I want to wish my awesome husband a very happy 10-year anniversary. Love ya, babe! I made him a very special card using his favorite image...but I can't share it with you yet because it's in the Fan Club Gallery awaiting the reveal on the 15th. I'll be able to share it with you here on my blog in a few months from now. I gave it to him this a.m., and he really liked it...whew!

Today's Limited Supplies Challenge is to use brads on a card as the only embellishment....no ribbon, stickles, other hardware, etc....oh, and you had to incorporate the brads into the stamped image somehow. I used mine as the trails for the butterflies. Sharon Johnson is also running a 10-minute card challenge, so I kept my card really simple today.....Just the black Verve butterflies (that are oh so adorable!), silver brads, and shades of black/white/gray. The inside has one little butterfly down in the lower left corner on a piece of white CS that is matted with a black panel.

Recipe ~
Stamps: Verve Fluttering By, Verve Petals & Stems
Paper: Basic Gray, Basic Black, White
Ink: Versafine Black Onyx
Accessories: Silver Brads, Ticket Corner Punch


Janice and I had a great time shopping yesterday. Thanks for the fun day, Janice!! She found a couple really awesome stores. Just in case you're in the Hershey, PA area, here's info on the stores. They're both definitely worth visiting. Neither store has a whole lot of stamps, but MAN OH MAN do they have paper and embellishments!!
