Gina K. Designs Inspiration Hop Day #3.....Bold & Beautiful!!!!

Smiley from millan.net or should it be...... Smiley from millan.net


Heehee!  Gina's newest Free with 3 called Bold and Beautiful has one of my most favorite images.....a butterfly!!  I do love butterflies!!!


 Stamps: Bold and Beautiful
Paper: Pure Luxury Ivory, Green Apple; DCWV Lace dp
Ink: Memento Pear Tart
Accessories: Rhinestones

I really wanted to showcase the butterfly and am enjoying making more CAS cards now and then.....so I had some lacey dp that I used to stamp the butterfly in Memento Pear Tart.  I stamped the sentiment also in the same ink on Pure Luxury Ivory and layered with Green Apple.  Just a few rhinestones....and a simple, quick birthday card.  And if you're like me you need last-minute birthday cards because of forgetfulness!  LOL

As you hop through the blogs, make sure you leave comments along the way for a chance to win a free stamp set of your choice valued up to $24.95!  We will randomly choose two winners so the more comments you leave, the more chances you have to win.
