Elegant Emerald

Hey There, 

I just wanted to pop in to share a card for the Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger Challenge: Elegant Emerald.  Here is our inspiration: 

Gorgeous, right?  Here's my take on it: 

I started by inking the background panel with distress inks and then stamping one of my Hero Arts background stamps (leaf and floral) over it.  I then added some vellum and stamped the Hero Arts envelop pattern in navy to resemble the model's veil.  Next came the  sentiment (PTI's Bountiful Banners), which is stamped in navy.  I surrounded the sentiment strip with gold striped washi tape as a nod to the model's pretty gold belt.  I think the butterfly is self-explanatory :)  It's a memory box die. 


I also want to enter it into the current A Blog Named Hero Challenge: Free Style.  And since butterflies come back in Spring, I'll also enter this into the Simon Says Stamp Challenge: Easter/Spring.  And I'll add it to Papertrey Ink's Make It Monday: Inked Backgrounds.

Thanks for stopping by today!
