Stampin' Up! Beauty Abounds for the Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop


Welcome to the Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop. This week we have a sketch challenge. If this is your first time here, welcome! If not, welcome back!!

I used the Beauty Abounds Stamp Set and Country Home Stamp Set to create my card today.

Here is our sketch...
My card base is Sahara Sand with a mat of Butterfly Bijou DSP. I cut the oval mat and another pattern of the Bijou with my Layering Oval Dies. I used the Butterfly Beauty Dies to cut the Sahara Sand Love You Always Foil Sheet sprigs. I stamped a butterfly on the DSP oval using Sahara Sand ink.

I stamped the sentiment on a scrap of Basic White cardstock and cut it out with a die from the Ornate Frames. It's adhered with Stampin' Dimensionals.

For the inside, I stamped the sentiment from Country Home in Sahara Sand ink on a piece of Butterfly Bijou DSP and matted it on a piece of Calypso Coral cardstock. The butterfly is from Beauty Abounds.

Because both stamp sets are over a year old, I am entering my card in the challenge at Retro Rubber
