Hello Hello Hello

And Hello once more :)

 

All the greetings are because I used the ‘hello, hello, hello’ sentiment stamp from the Happy Greetings stamp set in the Summer Mini Catalogue. 

 

The card base is Basic Gray which has been dry embossed using the Big Shot and the Elegant Lines Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  This is a great folder and just adds that little bit to the background.

 

The colours are from the colour challenge at The Play Date Cafe – Basic Gray, Daffodil Delight, Basic Black and Whisper White as the neutral.

 

The layout is from the sketch at Create with Connie & Mary which you can see here.  I have flipped the sketch around and used the wonderful Beautiful Wings Embosslits Die to create the butterflies.  This Die is one of my favourites at the moment (of course don’t forget the ‘bling’) as I love how the butterflies are embossed and cut at the same time when the folder goes through the Big Shot.
