I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!  The baby is still not feeling well, but at least she slept through the night and I was able to get some much needed rest.  Thank you to you all for your well wishes.

I made this card for today's Splitcoast stamper's featured stamper challenge.  This week's featured stamper is sbs81, congratulations Stephanie!  And this is her card that I decided to case.

I used the same stamp set as Stephanie did and I also wanted to try and make a one layer card like her card is.  I kept the same sketch, but I decided to add a butterfly, dry embossing, and I changed the colors up a bit.

I created a mask using my coluzzle rectangle template.  I placed the template on top of my card and I began stamping the flower images.  Once I had my flower images stamped I started sponging my blue background.  (I didn't mask off the flowers, I just sponged around them).

I decided that my card still needed a little something else so I added some decorative scoring along the outside border using my scor-pal.

The bee was just stamped, cut out, colored using my SU markers, and the placed on my card.  I added some dd glitter onto the bee's wings.

Thanks for stopping by!  Tomorrow I'll be posting a card for Splitcoast's Clean & Simple (Monday) challenge.  If you have time be sure to check out the challenge found here, this week is a super easy one!

What a beautiful card! Just the type I like to give and receive. I really like the touch of scoring the edges, it finishes it off nicely :-)
