A Beautiful Day!

Happy Friday morning everyone!

I am so excited about our trip! We leave very, very early tomorrow morning and will be diving by lunch! How about that!

I am also excited to have received my Serendipity Stamps last night. I made some time to use them and put a card together for the RSCC #8.

Here are the colors:

And here is my card:

This card uses the Butterflies in Flight stamp from Serendipity. Don't you just love the detail? I love how the images speak for themselves - you can color these babies in (and what fun that would be!) or not!

I added a little something by highlighting the butterflies with Pearl Ex. It gives it some subtle shimmer, but doesn't take away from the detail of the design.

The adhesive pearl was colored with a Copic marker and stuck on a button. It is much more complimentary to the Raspberry Fizz cardstock in real life! I can't wait to have the opportunity to use these stamps again.

Thank you for stopping by today - I promise that I will update when possible while I am away. But if I don't, it is because we are busy having a great time! Hugs!
