Karen *Day 3* and a VIDEO

This card by Karen is so fun: And did you notice all the charming details on this card? I especially love the button centers and stitching on the flowers! Oh, and don't forget the cute ribbon leaves!
Here is my take:
This card began entirely as white cardstock. The green background was distressed with Forest Moss and Peeled Paint Distress Ink. The stamping was done with Forest Moss Distress Ink. The butterfly was colored with Copic markers and the dot details were added with a fine tip black pen and white gel pen. (Yep, more Kathy inspired dotting--once you start you just can't stop!!)The sentiment panel was distressed using Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink.

I also have a card and video that I made for my LSS,
Mementos, to share with you today. Pretty clean and simple stamping on this card:
And here's the video:


Thanks again for visiting, my friends! See you tomorrow!

Both cards are very pretty, love the rich deep tones you got with the background on the first, and like the idea of stamping off on the corners, so pretty!
