PDCC40+Hero Arts

Hello, how is everyone's Tuesday? I am busy in the kitchen and the craft room. I made strawberry Jello with real strawberries in it. Summer time is great time to enjoy all kinds of berries.

Here is my take on The play Date Cafe Challenge PDCC40. It's color splash week and it means black and white with a hint of color. Black and white, I have to play. This week's color is Green. Here is my take on the Challenge. It's hard to take a good picture of this card. I am wondering id that's because of the glitters. I took a LOT and they are all loose focus. I picked the best I can get and sorry about the bad picture.
This month Hero Arts new challenge theme is Keep in touch&back to school. Keep in touch can be friendship, hello, thinking of you.......,I will enter this one to the challenge.
I use my favorite Hero Arts Dogwood stamp and new favorite Lace background. Stamp the dogwood with white ink on black cardstock. (I could 've use white embossing powder but I didn't for this card I want the subtle color from the white ink.) Punch corner. Die cut label and trace the frame with black pen before take out of the die. Stamp sentiment with black ink and thread ribbon. Adhere on black pannel and affix on card base.

Close up to see my glittered green butterfly.
To make the Glitter butterflies. First I stamp the Lace background with Peel paint and Shabby shutter distress ink on white cardstock. Peel off one side of the Peelnstick double-sided adhesive sheet (You can find it at Craft store at the type/adhere section)and affix on the stamped panel. Punch butterflies with Martha Stewart punch, peel off the other side of the sheet and sprinkle MS crystal coarse glitter. Glue the butterflies with glossy accent and add gems and bow.
**Thank you True for reminding me to enter this one to Really Reasonable Ribbon Challenge#5 , using black and white with ribbons. **

Thanks for stopping by.
