Welcome my stampy friends!

I am back from a summer hiatus and it is so good to be back!

I hope all of you had a wonderful summer!

We have a new challenge starting today at


Here is our gorgeous Inspiration Photo for this challenge:

I was inspired to create my Clean & Simple style card by those beautiful colors and the bold butterfly.

~Clean lines
~Lots of Layers
~Designer papers, embossing
~Clean & Fresh looking
~Some colored images

I layered some beautiful pattern papers together.

I added that bold butterfly which I made with a beautiful die from Spellbinders called Butterfly Sentiments.

I added some pearls , enamel dots and Wink of Stella for embellishments.
