ICS Blog Hop Butterflies Are Free


Hey there hope you all are having a good evening.  It was roasty toasty today with a high 98 degrees and I am off to Softball with the church group tonight I managed to NOT go to the pool today! The middle Tucker, Joshua had his friend over for some lunch... I managed to get some cleaning done and hope to have friends over on the 4th! Before all that, Mr Tucker and I are going out tomorrow night for our 10 Year Anniversary!! 

I am hopping with the ICS crew this evening! I would like to take a minute to thank Deb Naylor for adding me to this great hop! Wasn't Terri's creations completely adorbs?
This months theme is "Butterflies Are Free"! I love Butterflies... I think I have almost everything butterfly that we have offered! 


This great card started with a beautiful base of Tip Top Taupe. I then did a quick layer of Mint Macaron. The Very Vanilla layer is stamped with the Feel Goods stamped set using Versamark Ink and Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder. The small butterfly is from the Butterfly Basics set in the lovely Tip Top Taupe ink. I then took a scrap of the Tip Top Taupe that was embossed using the new Boho Chic embossing folder. I attached the Mint Macaron Dotted lace to the back using Sticky Strip (I still have a stash of it). Next I used Venetian Crochet Trim and Gold Metallic Bakers Twine across the embossed strip.  The butterflies were made using the Butterfly Thinlits in Mint Macaron. The smaller being stamped with Versamark and also heat embossed with the Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder. To finish this card off I used the new In Color Blossom Accents in Mint Macaron and Tip Top Taupe...

I hope you enjoyed my card! There is list of everything used at the bottom of my post!! Thank You all for stopping by! Next is Deb Naylor! She actually is the start of the hop! 

Have a great evening!
