 My letter for you to collect is the letter E


Here is my card for today's blog hop:

 I used 3 of the stamps from this new release, hope you like these stamps as much as I do.  I used "4020K Blossoms" and 2 of the butterflies from "S600N Fanciful Butterflies Set".  I decided to play around with parchment again, I am really liking parchment.  I stamped my stamps using White Dye ink onto Vellum.  I added some Fantasy Gold embossing powder and heat embossed my images.  I used my embossing mat and stylus' to etch parts of my image.  I colored the blossoms using Memento markers. For the butterflies, I just heat embossed them using the Fantasy Gold embossing powder and then fussy cut them out.  I added some ribbon and a bow and a few pearls to finish my card.

Here's a closer look at my images:
See all the sparkle from that awesome Fantasy Embossing powder.  I love it......


Now I need to send you on your way! Your Next stop is  Dawn L'sShe will have something wonderful I am sure!    Don't forget to leave a comment before you leave, I want to make sure you get in on the giveaway. Again, My letter for you to collect is the letter E.

The embossing powder is so pretty. I think I bought some last time I was in the store. Not sure, but after I do my taxes I am gonna stamp a bunch of stuff. Happy spring.
