Hello Everyone...thanks ever so much for your positive and fabulous comments on my story book card...will have another one coming up in the next couple of weeks.

But today is Sunday...a chilly Autumn day...but beautiful and a simple card to share.

Just couldn't get the sun to shine in the right spot to get the sparkle..sparkling.

But we have a little, so that will do..

The poppy stamp is a wooden stamp from Rubadubbadoo and I stamped it 3 times...coloured with a red copic R27 and added olive green pencil for shading..

The butterfly is from a clear set...the only name I have is "Sullivans" an Australian co.

I stamped her 4 times and decoupaged sections..also coloured with copics..

Another side view showing the DP's with this card...just red and white cardstock..and a fancy corner die from Joy Crafts.

The sentiment is a stamp from Ladybug Crafts Inks...I won this set a long time ago.

So there we have a simple card which nearly took longer than my story book card...sort

Beautiful card, Chrissy! Very striking with the red poppies and border. the decoupaged butterfly looks fabulous. Isn't it amazing how long a 'simple' design can take to make???!

Oh Chrissy, this is a lovely card. I can't see the sparkle, but I love those flowers and how you have colored them. Your butterfly with all his depth is so stunning, you did such a wonderful job on him. It is our Spring and yesterday was so sunny and not wind for the first time in quite some time. It was heaven on earth. I only bring it up as today is a totally different day. :O) Yep that old wind in making up for being gone and it is blowing so much and the sunshine is hiding, so it is rather chilly this morning and you can bet that I am going to take advantage of the not so nice weather and spend my day making a few cards that I NEED to make. Yay, for days when it is more fun to stay inside instead and play. lol.... Like I need an excuse to stay outside and play. Hope you and Harry are enjoying your fall weather. I just love it when the sun is out and you get that crisp fall air. Take care, hugs Lisa

I love my DPs, but it's fun to make a card without any patterned papers from time to time. It gives your card a nice clean look, and I love the dimension you've added to the sparkly butterfly, a nice touch!
