Experience, strength and hope

I think I'm getting my mojo back.  I had 3 stamp sets I hadn't put together yet and with a choice betwwen dog grooming and craft room yesterday, I choose the craft room.  I found out that a good way to adhere lace to a card is to put it through my Xyron machine--works like a charm, everything is stuck down.  Used a sponge to color the plain wodden button.  All edges are sponged with soft suede.  The stamp set is Strength and Hope.  Cardstock is Kraft.  Ink is soft suede.  Pink DP and ink are old CTMH Shell Pink.  Used silver pearls on the butterfly body.

I have had such a dry spell. Can't get motivated to make anything. I thought I'd try a challenge for today and this card is for CAS140. I started this card with a blue, yellow and orange ribbon--can you see it? No? Well that's because the card took on a life of its own as so many do. I don't know the colors of the cardstock because I pulled them out of a pile of mixed colors. The DP is K&Co. The stamp is from Big Lots. I colored the stamp with my aqua painter and Groovy Guava, Barely Banana and Real Red. The ribbon is from my stash and looked Groovy Guava to me. So there you have it.
