BE_Stampin'B's Challenge #20

Stampin'B's Follow the List challenge #20 for Aug. 21, 2009.

Our hostess today is Nancyruth Levine and her challenge to us was to use chalks on our card.

All images are by Creative Design Boutique/Rita Marie designer. This wonderful set is called
Flutterby Delight. I love the butterflies in this set, you can find them and many others at

For the chalk part of my card I did the background in pastel chalks "blue and pink", I used a piece of scrap paper and marked off different areas and then sponging on the chalks in streaky motions. I then used 2 different paisley designs from the same set and stamped them in Pretty in Pink and Bashful Blue. I used some Versamark and heat embossed with Clear EP.

For the layout I used this weeks SC242 which I think is terrific.
The cs is Bashful Blue, Ballet Blue, Pretty in Pink.
On the 2 main panels I sponged on some Pretty in Pink and Bashful Blue.
The flower is done with punches, prima flowers and a brad.
The butterfly was inked in India Ink/black and then colored with Copic markers, highlighted with 2 way glue and some Martha Stewart glitter. To finish my butterfly I added some gorgeous blue gems.
I also added the gems to the corners of the 2 main panels.
I finished off my card by added this beautiful pink polkadot ribbon.

Let me know what you think?
Hugs always, Nicole
