DIY Stamped Designer Paper

The current challenge at the AEI♥U challenge is to make our own stamped designer paper.  Here's my entry:

Avery Elle Stamped Paper Challenge

I used these Avery Elle sets: Thanks a Bunch, Petals & Stems, and Oh Happy Day, along with Butter Bar, Green Hills, and VersaFine onyx black ink.  I placed my stamped panel on a yellow card base and added a simple punched monarch butterfly.  

It's such a dreary day here today, I guess I needed to make my own sunshine!  

Challenge 9

Hope it's better where you are!  Thanks for visiting!

  6. Your yellow roses are beautiful.They made me think of the song The Yellow Rose of Texas. I am originally from Illinois,moved to Houston 35 years ago. i hope you have a bright sunny day tomorrow.
    That's a lovely shade of yellow,rich without being too bright.
