Another Birthday card with Hydrangea!









Yesterday when I was visiting fellow stamper's blogs, I stumbled onto these 2 challenges. ... I realized that there are soooo many challenges on the blogging world!! Anyways, when I saw this color challenge at CR84FN , I thought of my fav. Hydrangea stamp. Then I stumbled onto another challenge. It's a sketch challenge at Splitcoaststampers, and I, again thought of Hyrangea stamp. Then I remembered I needed to make a Birthday card for Birthday swap I participate throughout the year, and need to make a card for June, I decided to make this card. I embossed the Kraft CS with Cuttlebug embossing folder for background. I cut out the hydrangea image, attached it with dimentional glue foams, as well as the sentiment. I punched out 2 butterflies from 2 different colors of papers. One on the top has shimmer in it, but it would blend in to the background CS color, so I punched the darker paper to adhere it underneath. You can see them on the 2nd picture. I used purple color stickles for centers of little flowers of hydrangea. You can see them on the 3rd picture. Thank you for visiting my blog today :-) Hope everybody is safe from "severe weather"...
