CCEE1930 ~ National Moth Week ;)



Hi friends!

There's a new challenge at the CCEE Stampers this week:
National Moth Week!



Vicky is our hostess this month and said:

Who knew the moth would have a whole week dedicated to it!!  Use a moth (or butterfly) on your card today.  Extra credit if you actually have a Moth stamp/digital you can use.  


This is an opportunity to add to your Birthday, Thank you, Thinking of you or just all-occasion card stash.  LET THE INSECTS FLY!

 
Moths ~ that's one stamp I'm sure I don't have! ;)
Vicky gave us the option to use a butterfly so I chose that
as I have plenty of those!

I created a card today using Lawn Fawn's Butterfly Kisses.
I used the two critters and several of the butterflies in alternating colors.
I've blended a trio of Ranger inks:
Squeezed Lemonade, Spun Sugar and Worn Lipstick 
and decided to do just a strip of color for this card instead of the whole base.
With thick washi tape, I masked off the sides - off center on purpose ;)
and peeled it off when I was done to have a stripe of color.
I then ran it through the Gemini Jr with a die to create the panel
and added the critters and butterflies.
Super quick and fun!


 The sentiment is from the set, too, and it's using WOW white embossing
powder with a heat gun on #65 black cardstock and a MFT banner die.

You can see the themed cards here on the blog
as well as link your cards if you'd like to play along :)



This week's Lawn Fawnatics challenge is to use 'little things'
so I'll enter my card into challenge #57
and Cute Card Thursday 592 - no patterned paper!
 
Thanks for stopping by!
Big hugs, bigger blessings ♥
