I recently found out about a challenge and a contest with prizes, at http://www.cutcardstock.com.  This is my first ever time to enter a contest.  There are three prizes, First Place is $40, Second Place is $30, and Viewer’s Choice is $25.  I sort of thought: “nothing ventured, nothing gained“.  So, here goes.  The ground rules are that you must use a shade of purple, a shade of turquoise, and a butterfly.  Here is my entry, and quick and dirty recipe follows:

I used two rubber stamps by Heartfeltcreations.com; a digital butterfly stamp by just laury, a cuttlebug embossing folder, copic markers, several shades of ink, and turquoise and white card stock.  I also used two shades of glitter, and all the stamps were stamped on vellum with Versamark, embossed with White Opaque ink, cut out, and then sponged with colors of ink.  The butterfly was cut out and then colored with copic markers and glittered with two colors.  Sorry the details are so sketchy, but I was in a hurry because Sunday, March 18, is the deadline, and I did three cards before I found one I liked enough to enter!  Of course, the good news is that if you hurry, you still have time!

I don’t know if I’ll win anything or not, but I like my card.  I won’t publish one I don’t like, LOL!  I’d love to hear what you think of this entry.

Happy Stamping!
