{A New Day, New Challengea, and New Stamps!}


Hello! For the first time in as long as I can remember this is the first Monday when I was okay with the weekend being over. Yes, it was one of those. But, Monday is here and a brand new week and that makes me glad.  Today I am posting a card I created using pretty pastel colors that are featured in this weeks challenge at the Play Date Cafe. To create my card I used two sets from Papertrey Ink, my newest set, Think Big Favorites #7, and Background Basics Retro. The patterned paper is from K and Company (tan print) and My Minds Eye (pink print).


Isn't that little butterfly pretty? Its is from K and Co and started out white, but I used SU Pretty In Pink and a  make up sponge to add a soft touch of color.  Love! The flower was created using a cutting file from A Little Hut. Next I stamped them with my Retro back ground stamp. Lastly I sprayed them with a light mist of water, crumpled them up (gently), and flattened them out to dry. I really love the way my layered flower turned out! I don't usually create shabby chic cards but I love the way this one turned out! Today I am playing along with these challenges:
