I Didn't Forget...

But I am sure I will! LOL!! Hi everyone! Happy Saturday! I am not sure about any of you, but I have a BAD habit of sending out cards REALLY late! That's why I always need some "belated" cards in my stash!!

Here is my card for today's Inspiration Challenge on SCS, IC188 Chasing Fireflies!! What a fun site to be inspired by! I was so inspired by this Butterfly Standard Quilted Sham. I LOVE the colors and pattern, and it reminded me a bit of this delish Urban Praire paper from Basic Grey.
My layout is Jen's Sketch For You To Try from today, SFYTT, and I pulled all my colors right from this paper. I used Vibrant Teal, Crabapple Medium and Intense Kiwi cardstock all from Prism.
For my card, I used one of my favorite stamps, Slow & Steady by There She Goes! This little guy is SO much fun to color! I stamped him in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Snow White cardstock and colored him with Copic Markers. I LOVE how the sentiment curves just like my circle nestie! That is one of my FAVORITE things about clear acrylic stamps...you can "mold" them any way you want!!
I added tons of piercing on my card, and finished it off with this gorgeous crocheted flower that my friend Danielle Lounds made me! I added a button, also from Danielle (thanks girlie!!) to the center of the flower with some Linen Thread!
Thanks SO much for stopping by!!
