Today, I had the privilege of participating on another 90-minute Scramble with the Hero Arts Flickr Group. It feels like ages since I've been able to participate in a scramble.....and as almost was a blast! I must admit though, that the first card I made ended up in the garbage! It was waaaaaaaay too busy. But, I salvaged a small part of it and ended up using on the card I submitted for the scramble.  Here's my card:

Here's how I did it:
I stamped my Hero Arts "Traditional Butterfly" stamp on white cardstock and colored with Copic markers. I then cut it into a circle and distressed the edges with "Peacock Feathers" Distress ink. The circular piece behind the circular butterfly is the piece I salvaged from my original card. I had inked the Hero Arts "Large Solid Flower" stamp with "Peacock Feathers", Evergreen Bough" and "Frayed Burlap" - spritzed the stamp with water, and stamped onto white cardstock. I then lightly swiped over the stamped image with Peacock Feathers distress ink and distressed the edges with the same ink. The larger circle was adhered to my kraft cardbase, and the butterfly circle adhered on top of it with foam tape. The banner was also cut out of kraft cardstock and adhered with foam tape. The buttons were added as a finishing touch.

Thanks so much for looking!!
