Be Bold

I have not yet made my 4 cards from our February Bloom Box but I did make a card using the Bold Wings stamp set.  Usually a friend comes over when her hubby works with mine on Saturdays and we make our cards but it isn't going to happen this month.

 I actually seen a card similar to this on Pinterest.  I started with a Whip Cream base and a layer of Huckleberry Fusion.  The butterfly is stamped on Whip Cream with our Clear Pigment ink then White embossed.  I used Huckleberry Fusion ink and multiple stamping with our Branch ATS stamp for the branches and text (from the Bold Wings set).

I used a couple PanPastels on and around the butterfly, I used the Huckleberry Fusion from the Rich Sorbets set and  Pool Play from the Confectionary Days set.  And 3 tiny rhinestones finished out the butterfly.

This card would also be great as a birthday or sympathy card just by changing the text.

And for those of you in the know, any ideas why my blog would get 540 hits at 1 time?  I've been getting 30 to 40 every 4 to 6 hours for the past week but Saturday afternoon, oh my gosh!  Would love to know why!
