CCEE1436


Lois is our hostess today and in honor of Newspaper Carrier Day she has asked us to make a card using newsprint. I used an ivory cardbase and added purple cardstock with the newsprint.
I embossed the top panel of purple and then rubbed white craft ink over it.  On the newsprint, I embossed the flower image with white embossing powder. Then I colored it with Stampin' Up markers. The butterflies are a Martha Stewart punch.  I used a button for the center of the flower and pearls for the butterfly bodies.

Make sure you make it over to see all the terrific designs for this challenge over at CCEE Stampers.  Hope you can find the time to join us in this challenge and link it up over at CCEEStampers.  Make sure you use  CCEE1436 on your card if you download it to SCS.
