Lovely Day

Here's a simple little card I made using my favorite Tim Holtz Kraft Resist paper from the Flying Unicorn Store. Flying Unicorn also has a social site too. Here you can meet an incredibly talented Creative Team and look at their work for loads of inspiration. The motto is friends, inspiration, laughter and fun. There are challenges that always have RAK prizes. There's lots to learn too from tutorials to ideas on organizing your supplies. Come on over and visit.

Well, I love the way watercolor paints reacts with this paper in a subtle way. I cut the butterflies from this paper and added Stickles for shine. There's a rick rack border, a sprinkle of rhinestones and finally I stamped it with "Lovely Day."

Hope you are having a lovely day today!
artfully yours, gerri
