A Happy Hello

Happy Wednesday, Everyone!  It's time for another challenge from The House That Stamps Built.  This week is a Designer's Choice Challenge from the fabulous Patti: White Plus one other color.
Here is my card:
 It turned out a bit more shabby chic than I first planned, but I love the final result.   I started out by partially inking up the music background stamp and stamping it onto the stitched panel, then I lightly sponged the edges to distress them a bit.  I also sponged the edges of the embossed panel.  For the circle, I used some frantage embossing powder to create some dimension (I just learned how to do this the right way and am sooo excited!).  The butterfly was stamped in Versamark on vellum and then embossed with white embossing powder.  I fussy cut the butterfly and then colored on the back with the aqua ink and popped it up with pop dots.
Now it's time to head on over to the challenge blog and see what the rest of the DT has done with this challenge.  And remember, if you like any of the stamps I used, I have a 10% discount code over on the left hand side of this blog.
(And on a side note, Cas-ual Fridays Stamps is starting a new challenge blog: Cas-ual Chic and it's all about adding layers and "stuff" to your projects.  First challenge starts July 10th)
