Stampin' Up Weather Together, Umbrella Weather, Timeless Textures, Fresh Fruit

Goodness, ya' better put some rocks in your pockets today!  It's so windy out today you might get blown away!  It's been cloudy and rainy all week long so the ingredients for my card are quite fitting!

My share for today is a card that I designed using paper, die cuts and Enamel Shapes that my Good Friend and Fellow Stampin' Up Demonstrator, Kadie, sent to me for a challenge.  This is my second challenge and I just LOVE playing along.  It's so fun to see what you can come up with using all the bits and pieces!

The Stampin' Up products that were used are Weather Together, Timeless Textures and Fresh Fruit Stamp Sets, Umbrella Weather Thinlits Dies and Enamel Shapes.  

Let's take a look:

Ha!  Bet you thought there would be some rain or type of weather in my card, didn't you!!!  Nope, I turned the gorgeous umbrella's into butterflies!!!  As soon as I saw Kadie's gorgeous umbrella's in my packet, I hacked them up into butterfly wings!!!  =)  Isn't that funny!  Don't ask me where I come up with these things as I don't have an answer for you!  I just know that I LOVE how it turned out.  The gorgeous umbrella's made for some gorgeous butterfly wings!

Kadie's packet included:
 An A2 Card Base in Rich Razzleberry 
 A piece of Crumb Cake Cardstock that I used for my Card Front Panel

I stamped my Card Front Panel using the small splotch stamp from SU's Timeless Textures Stamp Set in Crumb Cake Ink.

 Two Umbrella's; one in Rich Razzleberry 

 And one in Delightfil Dijon Cardstock.  I trimmed off the rounded end from the umbrella handle and used them for the Butterflies' bodies.

  A piece of Soft Sky Cardstock which I made into a flagged banner.  I stamped my sentiment from SU's Fresh Fruit Stamp Set in Crumb Cake Ink.

 And, three Heart Enamel Shapes that I used for the Butterflies' heads and on my sentiment.  I used a Black Sharpie to draw the eye's.

What a fun, fun challenge this was!  Thanks so much for sending me a packet Kadie!!!

That's all I have for today.  Thanks for stopping by my blog!

I recently discovered that people are using my cards and/or projects, duplicating them and entering them into challenges and using them for their own card classes.  My cards and projects are my own creations and are not to be used in challenges, blog hops, card classes or sold at craft shows; etc., for profit.  I don't mind if you duplicate my creativity to pass on to family members or friends as gifts or Occasions cards; but,  PLEASE be considerate of others creativity!  Thank you!
