Over the weekend I purchased a retired set of stamps from another demo who is going through a de stashing period .
Well, My set arrived this morning along with this lovely thank you card.
To be honest, I think I was more interested in the card than the stamps ...lol.
So with Tracey's permission I decided to share her card here with you.
I think this is a happy, sunny card. It certainly made me smile when I opened it and that makes it worthy of a post.
My next reason for sharing this card is because it's a totally different style of card to those I usually produce and I thought, it may make you smile too.
Tracey has punched out the larger butterfly from the top layer of card to reveal the polka dot DSP beneath.
The smaller butterfly has been punched out of the same DSP and adhered to the top layer of Whisper White card, which Tracey has stamped using the splatter stamp from the Gorgeous Grunge set .
I am not sure what colour ink she has used, I am guessing it is Hello Honey. If I am wrong I am sure she will let me know.
I love the splatter stamp and use it quite a lot myself usually in conjunction with other stamps it's a great filler stamp for taking the starkness off a plain white background.
I was surprised to see how Tracey has used the two punches for the greetings. I would never have thought of using the scallop oval on top of a plain oval.
I tend to use the scallop as the backing to an oval. So it was great to see how somebody else uses these punches.
I guess all that's left for me to say is thank you Tracey for this card which brightened my day......
OH and Tracey, it even got Hubby's seal of approval....and that takes some doing.
