Blog Hop - Day 3 and Stampin'B's Challenge

Today my card serves two purposes – Day Three of the Mark’s Finest Papers’ Blog Hop and the Stampin’B’s DT Blog Challenge. Faith (Markie’s Mom) was the hostess for the Stampin’B’s challenge, and she wanted us to make a Spring or Easter card.

Butterflies always remind me of spring – when everything is new and clean. The images for this card are from Daffodil and Anise, a new set from Mark’s Finest Papers: Speedy the Cat Collection – despite the fact that this card has neither Daffodils nor Anise. I do love this little butterfly. I stamped him with Palette Noir Black and quickly clear embossed him. Then I sponged both Landscape and Beaux Arts Blue, adding the green half pearls for his body. The top of the tag was cut using a Spellbinders Labels Four die, and the punched border is a new Martha Stewart border punch.

For your chance to win BLOG CANDY, visit and comment on each of the following design team members' blogs on March 10th, 11th, and 12th. On Saturday, (March 13), a winner will be chosen from those who have visited all 9 blogs all three days.The winner will be announced on the Mark's Finest Papers Blog and will receive 2 Stamp Sets that will be released NEXT month. And remember, Friday night will be the New Flourishes Release at Mark's Finest Papers!
