Here's another all white except for the main image card, this time for the Flutterby Wednesday challenge. I used copper EP on the butterfly, cut out between some of the design, then curled the wings and attached it. I really like how this turned out. Lots of pretty shimmer without being over-the-top.

My second card today is a card I made for Father's Day. My dad has been gone for 20 years (he's actually my step-dad but the only father I ever knew), but he was my hero and I still miss him terribly. There are times when his passing seems so much more recent. Every year on his birthday, Father's day, Christmas I take flowers and a card to his gravesight at Ft. Sam Houston National Cemetary. He was a Korean War and Vietnam Vet. He loved sailing, so this set is perfect.
I used Flourishes stamps, colored a bit on the ship with Prismacolor pencils and added Stickles to the waves. Cut out image with Spellbinders deckled oval, sponged Distress Ink around the ship. Used a corner punch on the base CS and DP. Flourishes challenge is to use hardware. I have had these anchor buttons for many years. I snipped off the back, gave them a "patina" with a Copic marker and attached them. The ship's wheel is a Tim Holtz gear. I had some flower stamens and I colored them with a Copic marker and attached them to the back of the gear, then attached it with a brad. Looks like a wheel to me. : )
