Just for Fun Friday

It's Just for Fun Friday over at the Just for Fun Rubber Stamps blog, which means it is time for Color Challenge #13. Because the color challenge is orange, black and white, my first thought was to put together a Halloween card, but then I forced myself to think just a hair more out of the box than that. After all, it isn't even quite June yet and thus butterflies seem far more appropriate than witches and goblins at this point anyhow.

I hope after seeing this card and visiting the Just for Fun blog that you will decide to play along with us this week for a chance to win a sweet discount at the Just for Fun Rubber Stamps online store right here. 

For this card I used the butterfly from the Cats & Stuff unmounted stamp collection. You can buy it right here. The sentiment is from one of my favorite Just for Fun stamp sets called Collage Unmounted and you can buy that one right here.

I colored the butterflies with my Copic Markers and added some Copper Stickles to their wings for just a tad of bling.  I embossed the black cardstock strip for texture and cut out each letter of the sentiment to leave a bit of the patterned paper peeking through.  Then I tied it all up with a black swiss dot bow because that's how I roll... and now... it's your turn! Yee haw!
