Judy thought of a really fun challenge for today's LSC on SCS...make a card using something old, something new, something borrowed (with credit where credit is due), and something blue.
Okay, here's my list:
Something Old: SU Natural Beauty
Something New: My new Leafy Branch Cuttlebug Folder
Something Borrowed: I l-o-v-e the way Jami (sgtstamper) twisted the cord and ran it along two sides of her card seen HERE. Have you seen Jami's gallery?? She's incredibly inspiring! I was at the dentist yesterday for my 6-month cleaning and saw an ad in a magazine of a bedroom decorated in blue and orange, so that's where I got the idea for the color combo.
Something Blue: Ballet Blue Cardstock
I already had the butterflies colored and cut out from a card I made last month. There are two of them on this card, layered on top of one another with dimensionals. They were stamped in Versafine Black Onyx onto Fabriano Watercolor Paper, watercolored with reinkers/ink pads, and then I added some Stickles on the lines on the butterflies.
The flower was stamped in Versafine Black Onyx onto white Georgia Pacific CS, colored with reinkers, cut out with an oval Nestabilities die, and then Stickles were added. The scallop ovals are also Nestabilities. The white oval and the Ballet Blue oval are each up on separate layers of dimensionals. I ran two 4" x 5.25" panels through my Leafy Branch Cuttlebug Folder, one Ballet Blue and one White, cut the White one from corner-to-corner, and then glued it over the Ballet Blue panel.
Inside of the card: Ballet Blue mat, White mat, and then some of the leftover white Cuttlebug pattern was added to the lower left corner.
