Thinking of you...

It's been a while since I made a black and white card... I wanted to make a simple card without any designer paper and came up with this card

Of course I could not bring my self to leave it plain and simple, so I started adding pearls and before you know it, I got carried away with all the pearls. I stamp the butterfly, cut it out and pop it up with glue dots.

This week 259 Color Challenge over on Splitcoast Stampers is to use Pale Plum, Perfect Plum, Neutral and Soft Suede. Well I do not have soft Suede so I decided to make do with Close to cocoa, I figure it is close to soft suede. I am trying to use some of my much neglected Stampin up stamp. As I was organized my crafty room and get all of my stuff out of boxes I came across this set called The Gift of Spring from SU and thought I will have to use this set because it was sitting there for a while now. I got tired of packing and took a break, went on the computer and started to blog hops. I came across Stamp Something blog and their challenge was Touch of Spring Somethings. I thought it was perfect for this tulip stamp from this set. Also my card is for Sophisti-cat challenge #22 which is to use stitching and Crafty Creations challenge #55 which is also to use stitching on your creation. The pink Elephant challenge #54 and The Little Red Wagon challenge #16 is Ribbon. Last but not least is The Little Paper Shop challenge #55 Distressing.
