Inspiration From One of my Favorite Stampers and a Rainbow Challenge!

Created by Michele Kovack
Do you have a morning routine?
I do. ;)
I feed my pups, make my coffee, and sit down in front of my computer and peruse through my list of favorite stampy blogs. It is such a great relaxing start to my day, and also a great way to get inspired.  Recently, I fell in love with THIS card from one of my stamping idols, Laura Bassen.  I love everything she creates! Her videos crack me up because she has such a great sense of humor! (I appreciate people with a sense of humor!) I don't case too many cards, but decided to try my hand at a card similar to hers.

I stamped the rows of butterflies using a Stampendous stamp and my Mini Misti.  It was embossed in white and colored in a somewhat loosely translated rainbow color pattern.  I splattered the background with white and black water colors for a bit of interest.  I added a sentiment from JustRite cut on white foam.  I added sparkly Stickles to it.  The sentiment was stamped on black and embossed on white. I added it to the front panel along with a few sequins.

I know my posts have still been a bit sparse, but summer has been so busy with baseball games, golf, graduation parties etc.  :)  
Life is good.
I truly appreciate you stopping by my little blog!
Have a wonderful day my friends!
