Adore You for the Card Concept

Hi Everyone.  Happy Tuesday.

Oh.... I couldn't wait to play along with the Card Concept challenge this weekend.   Their inspiration photograph is just gorgeous

Isn't that gorgeous?   For my card I was inspired by the blue vase, the white gyp and, of course, the butterflies!   
I began with a Soft Sky base (what.... not using white!!!!!!) and repeatedly stamped one of the flowers from the Altenew Adore You stamp set onto the Soft Sky base with Versamark and heat set with puffy white embossing powder from Hero Arts.
I then colored the inside of the flowers with a white Prismacolor pencil.   I wanted the feel of the bunch of white gyp - but still leave the blue that I was so drawn to with the vase.
The butterfly is a sticker that my bestie sent to me last year ... I love these butterflies and it was the perfect fit for the challenge.  I then stamped the sentiment onto Neenah Solar White card stock and mounted it to the base and attached the butterfly.
Here's my take on the challenge:

On a personal note:
I wasn't able to get out and take any photographs of the wetland for you.... but... oh, I am so glad there is some green this way coming :-)  
I do want to share the photograph of the storm over the wetland that I forgot to include in last night's post though :-)   I really loved the look of the storm clouds and the muted colors - with the pop of green of the White Cedar.  The sky looked so big and the trees so small :-)    It really is a beautiful view - any time of the year - and we are so blessed to be able to look at it every day.

I'll be back with another card tomorrow - and will try and get outside between storms for you.  In the meantime, warm hugs and prayers for those of you who need a little lift tonight.

I love how soft and gorgeous this design is. The added texture of the embossing combined with the enamel dots is just perfect. Thanks for playing along at The Card Concept!


Such a beautiful card. Love that dreamy background and that fabulous butterfly. So glad you could join us at The Card Concept.


Beautiful card and the background using the puffy embossing powder looks great. I have a habit of Over-heating the puffy EP so don't use it very often.
The butterfly is perfect. Goes well with your card.

Even tho your wetland photo looks scary with them clouds, it's still a very lovely picture. Such siren picture of your wetland area
Like those pictures you see where the sky meets the ocean


oh wow - to both your card and your view! Your card is beautiful. I've never heard of the puffy embossing powder - you are always leading the way on new products. Unfortunately it takes a long time for many of those products to make their way to Canada! But simply beautiful, all 'round.

I love your card today, Jaydee. The white embossed flowers with the beautiful butterfly and sweet sentiment are perfect together. The picture is great with the lighter sky in the upper left and the green of the cedars. It's a big world out there. Have a wonderful day.


Love this Jaydee, you background is gorgeous! That storm looks scary, I hope it passed you by!
