Kathy *Day 2*

Here is the next card by Kathy:
I love, love, LOVE the colors of this card. Kathy's stamping of the clouds in orange is bold and fun! And I'm sure you noticed her stunning butterfly. One of Kathy's style trademarks is adding dots to a stamped image. Who would have thought that this could add so much!!?? Finally, I love the texture and sparkle the punched border and gems add to this card.
Here is my take. I had way too much fun adding some white dots to my butterfly...this could be addicting! :)
Thanks again for stopping by!

Supplies---Stamps: Butterfly (Hero Arts CG120), Sentiment (Hero Arts CL342), Butterfly Trail stamped and stitched (Hero Arts JS143); Ink: Distress Ink (Tim Holtz), VersaMagic Chalk Ink, Black Ink (Stampin' Up); Other: White Gel Pen (Sakura), Copic Marker (YR68), Dimensional Adhesive (All Night Media), Misc. Cardstock, Gems, and Thread
