MTVD and Featured Stamper (Susan!)

Here's a card that combines yesterday's Featured Stamper with the Meet the Verve Diva Challenge #02, which is an inspiration challenge hosted by Amber. Amber picked a picture from Crate and Barrel as this week's inspiration piece. A picture is attached below. I went with the colors in the piece for my card.

I was really excited to see that Susan (susiestampalot) was picked as the FS yesterday!! I love visiting her gallery and blog. She's a hoot!

HERE's her card that I chose to CASE. I used the same Verve butterfly, scallops behind the main image, and layout. I used plain paper instead of DP, omitted the piercing (only because I forgot to do it before I glued it all down...man, I wish I had remembered to do that), added scallops along the vertical panel, and went with the colors in the MTVD challenge.

The butterfly was stamped twice in Summer Sunrise. The second butterfly was cut out and popped up on dimensionals over the first one. The turquoise scallop rectangle is up on dimensionals as well.

Recipe ~
