Thinking of You

This week's theme at Card A Day Blog is "Thinking of You". Thanks so much for stopping by and checking out today's card. I have all of the cutting instruction at the bottom of this post.

I used markers to color my stamp, then stamped on and off my white mat, varying the height of the stamp. This is then layered onto an orange piece of card stock.   The butterfly is stamped on white cards stock, colored, cut out and all the edges are inked.  I thought the butterfly need a little something so I used a little bit of stickles, on just the wing, to make it stand out after the card was all put together.   
For my embossing layer I started out by cutting my turquoise paper to fit inside the embossing folder. After it was embossed I trimmed around the outside edges leaving the embossed frame. I wanted a little bit of the kraft card stock front showing on my card. 

I layered the orange and white card stock with another flower stamped on the edge for the inside of the card.   I inked all of my edges with distress ink.

Thank you for stopping by.  Tomorrow Laury is the Card A Day Blog Designer so don't forget to stop back and see what she has to inpire you.
