The Card Concept #38: Miss You

Hello, friends!  I was able to make a few cards today because my youngest son has a fever and therefore we are not going anywhere.  He's taking a nap, so I was able to make a card in between the usual household tasks.

Today I'm playing with the color challenge at The Card Concept #38.  I think my card fits the definition of "clean and simple," maybe "clean and layered?"  I definitely was inspired by the colors this week!


I am getting ready to send in a final bunch of cards to Operation Write Home as they begin to wind down operations with their "Finish Strong" campaign.  They will not be accepting cards after August 1st, so I figured this is a good time to send them off.  I wanted to add a few "miss you" cards to the stash I'm sending, and this is one of them.

(Note that I know they don't accept cards with glitter for safety reasons, but this butterfly was cut from glitter card stock and I tested it, as they recommend, to make sure none rubs off when I scrape it with my finger.  Not one fleck of glitter came off.)

  1. So sorry to hear your little guy is sick Judy, hope he's better soon. Your card is gorgeous!! Such a pretty butterfly and a great use of the medallion!

  2. Gosh, Judy, you reminded me I have this medallion stamp and it needs to be dusted off. I love how you have combined it with the butterfly and good for you to test it and fab it passed. Great to see you at The Card Concept x

  3. Judy, this card is so so pretty. Love the colour combination. I dont have that stamp but I have one from Mama Elephant that I think will look beautiful used this way too. Always love your inspiration.

  4. Lovely card, I like the combo of the medallion and butterfly.

  5. This is such a pretty pattern and talk about perfectly stamped!!!

  6. Absolutely GORGEOUS card, Judy! I love the elegance of the medallion as a background for the butterfly and the color combo is just beautiful! Another perfect card for OWH, too!

  7. Truly gorgeous Judy! Love the use of the medallion under the layered butterfly!
