The Cutting Edge | Challenge #3

I love finding new card challenges and this week I'm participating in the third challenge for The Cutting Edge


What a fun card! I really like the strip of cardstock with the hearts, and the white on white. For my card, I stamped several flowers from Altenew's Painted Flowers stamp set onto Neenah white cardstock. I die cut the vellum from Papertrey Ink's Notched Star Banner die, and the butterflies are from Hero Arts' Butterflies #3 stamp and die set. I used my favorite Hero Arts gems in the center of each butterfly, and the letter stickers are from Kelly Purkey/Simon Says Stamp. The last die that I used is the pinking edge die from Papertrey Ink that I die cut out of Limeade Ice cardstock.


Painted Flowers might be my new favorite stamp set. Altenew out did themselves with this set! The flowers are beautiful and give that lovely watercolored look without me having to actually pull out a set of watercolors. Win-win. :)

Thanks for looking!
