Featured Stamper - Lost in the 60's

Today's Featured Stamper on SCS is Diane (Lost in the 60's)....awesome stamper!! What a fantastic gallery to choose from. HERE'S her card that I chose to CASE.

I was totally inspired by the Inkadinkadoo stamp she used and the flight pattern of the birds in that stamp. I don't own that stamp (but I might just buy it because I like it so much) but when I saw it, I thought of my new Verve butterflies.

Speaking of Verve, did you see that I was one of the winners for the $15 in Verve Bucks.....WHOA!, YAY!, OMG--SO EXCITED!! I'm lovin' my new sets, and I can't wait to see the new sets that are being released this week. I was the 29th entry in the Project Parade, and that was the number picked by Random Generator.....funny, because Kevin Harvick (my fav Nascar guy) is #29. {smile}

So back to the challenge...here's what I kept the same and what I changed. I kept Diane's awesome layout, used some large primas and a brad in the corner, chose stamps that would mirror the *flight path* in her card, and kept the same sentiment placement. I changed the colors, stamps, omitted the vellum, and added gingham ribbon as well as two faux brads in the lower left corner (also stamps from the Petals & Stems set). I know you're probably saying, "Orchid Opulence??" Yeah, I don't think I've ever used it, but let's give it some love, shall we? {smile}

The inside of the card includes a Poison Ivory (shimmery CS) panel with two butterflies stamped in the lower right corner with some paper piercing for the *trails*.
