CC71 Shower Card

Happy Saturday, all!  I had a quiet day yesterday, did some chores around the house and actually got to stamp a wee bit!  I am attending a bridal shower today and when I saw the photo at The Card Concept, I thought it would translate into a pretty shower card:

The photo just doesn't do this card justice, but hopefully you'll get the idea!  

I stamped the "greenery" from Jar of Love with white craft ink and heat-embossed it with white embossing powder, then lightly sponged a "halo" of Mint Macaroon behind it.  I added some Papillion Potpourri butterflies, stamped in Basic Gray and colored with Flirty Flamingo and Marina Mist, then stamped and diecut my jar on some retired DSP:

I added some Flirty Flamingo ruched ribbon, white sequins. and a little sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes, and it's good to go!  I would describe my card as the "Clean and Layered" style!

Do you think Cassidy was excited to dye Easter eggs?  Silly girl!

Wayne and Grammy got in on the act too!

Be sure to come back tomorrow--I am the hostess at the Paper Players!  Have a blessed Easter!

I love your embossed branches behind the butterflies. This light and cloudy background is just perfect. Looking forward to the PP tomorrow...

Wow, you've perfectly recreated that inspiration photo. I love how it turned out! That sponged back ground looks awesome with the white embossed stems. Hope the shower was fun. Happy Easter to all!

I love the delicate sponging over the embossing, so effective with the gorgeous butterflies. A fabulous take on the challenge. Thank you so much for joining us at The Card Concept.
