C&S Butterflies

I made this quick & easy C&S card for my next OWH box and love how it turned out! I'll be making a whole lot more of this design for sure! I used the Sweet'nSassy polka dot silhouettes stamps for this one, stamping the image in 3 colors and matching a piece of scrap cardstock for the mat. I don't know if you can see it, but I scored the panel with 3 different-sized lines on the top & bottom of the butterflies for a little interest. I used a fine marker and drew in the antennae and added a favorite sentiment from MFP. The border was done with a SU! fancy scallops border punch, and the butterflies were stamped with 3 different Memento inks - Bahama Blue, Tangelo, and Bamboo Leaves.
Well, today is tax day for me.....aack! I dread having to go through these yearly routine tasks like gathering receipts, organizing, adding, checking, double and triple checking, and all that fun stuff! I keep my fingers crossed that we don't have to pay in every year, but it's time to face it head on and git 'er done! Wish me luck!
Have a great day everyone, and thanks for stopping by!

Carol, I love it. The colors are great and yes, you can see the score lines. Great job. The antennae look great. Good luck today. I just hate all this stuff you we HAVE to do taking time away from things we WANT to do. Talk Soon. Hugs

Ugh, ugh, ugh! {Taxes - BLECH!}

I'll just get lost in your beautiful creation, instead of contemplating the T-word! {Blech!}

Sometimes the beauty of a well-inked stamp REALLY satisfies! {Okay, I mean ALWAYS! heh heh!} THIS is lovely my friend! Positively LOVELY!

Carol, your card is beautiful with all those lovely, colorful butterflies. And, I see the wonderful scoring just fine.
I know what you mean about tax time. My hubby and I got everything ready for our tax guy on Sunday. Was so glad when it was finished.
