CTMH Paper Focus Blog Hop - Wanderful

If you are coming from Marianne's Blog, you are on the right track.  I happen to be the start of this Wanderful showcase.  A list of participants is provided at the bottom of the list should you want to hop around.

This month, several team members and I are showcasing the Wanderful paper packet.  I am anxious to see what the other girls created with it.  I think it is ideal for vacation layouts but I choose to use it for a card!
I love this polka dot pattern that is included as one of the B&Ts.  Actually, I think I just love most anything that is polka dot.  LOL  I kept this card rather simple, cutting three strips of equal length and layering them on some Kraft cardstock, placing them towards the top of the card.
I stamped two of the butterfly images from this, "You're Own Kind of Wonderful", stamp set and used Cocoa ink.  Using three of our ShinHan markers, I colored them in.  (You can only see two different colors but in order for me to get the Smoothie color out of the markers, I used two different colors and layered them on top of each other.  Explore with your markers when you think you don't have the right tone!)
You know I love me some dimension on my artwork, so I took some 3-D Foam Tape and placed it under the wings of both butterflies.  I also used the markers to color this heart from the Chalk It Up Assortment, also in attempt to make it coordinate with the rest of the card.  And, of course, I always have to use some bling so included it on the body of the butterfly and then after one of my favorite sayings, "Dream Big".  

I hope you like it.

Now, go check out Melissa David's artistic talent!  She is sure to impress!  We truly appreciate you stopping by!

Happy hoppin'!
