Special Delivery.....

Hello everyone: I have a card to share with you today that I'm not to sure about, specially because I don't think it's CAS enough to submit to the Addicted to Stamps and More challenge #190 which has a photo inspiration theme of MOM, it has a butterfly so I just went with that and the fact that little Monica is being "delivered", I've made a card like this one for a new mom or a Baby Shower for the mom to be, I hope it's ok. I also want to submit this card to The Paper Players Butterflies CAS challenge from Sandy, again.....I'm not to sure it's ok. The other challenge I want to participate in, this card is perfect because it's the April Butterfly challenge over at LiveLoveCards so, I'm taking a leap of faith with my card, her it is.


Many of you know that I adore the House Mouse mice, super sweet and simply adorable. This image is just to cute for words. The stamp is called "Butterflight", I couldn't find it at their store so it might be discontinued. I stamped it onto Canson water color paper with Stazon Jet Black ink and colored with SU markers, the aqua painter and a couple of Prismacolor pencils. I sponged some distress Broken China distress ink and stamped the sentiment from an old Flourishes set with Calypso Coral ink, the ribbon is from my stash.
Here is a picture of the finished inside of my card.


Here are the banners that inspired my card.

Thank you for stopping by today, until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.

Thanks Sonny, I WISH I had all of this adorable images but sadly, I don't. I have a good bunch that I've been buying for years. I don't often go to the House Mouse store because it's like I'm under a spell or something, I always end up getting something.

Wonderful card Maria and I reckon its CAS enough too as coloured background is like coloured card stock and they say white is not the only CAS but then Im not an expert either. Beautiful butterfly.
