Hope Is Faith: Embossed Butterfly

This is my final card for the GKD Guest Designer spot. I have seen just some beautiful projects in the STV Gallery and on is just so neat how so many of us enjoy GKD stamps!

I made this card using the stamp set Hope is Faith which includes this beautiful butterfly image and sentiment. I used the colors Lovely Lavender and Creme de Menthe along with White Heavyweight cardstock for the base. The butterflies were embossed on Glossy cardstock and sponged over with Memento New Sprout and SU Certainly Celery to make the butterflies POP! I have been wanting to emboss the butterfly image on vellum for quite a while and thought it would be perfect for this card. I am having a hard time picking which spring color combo is my favorite, and right now I think it is Lovely Lavender and Creme de Menthe, but it will probably change tomorrow, LOL!

Thanks so much for stopping by and hope you have a FABULOUS Wednesday!
