Beautiful Day

Good Morning! 

We are expecting a Blizzard any moment now.  Could be FUN!

Today's card will be entered into the Challenges at; Altenew, Penny Black, Favorite Stamp and Stamping Sensations, Animal Magic (which may include birds and butterflies too).


This card uses one of my most favorite floral stamp sets from Altenew, Beautiful Day.  Butterfly from the Wild Hibiscus set.  Inks in Melon Mambo, Pink Pirouette and Black Licorice.  Greenery colored with Copic Markers.

After stamping, die cutting and coloring the Butterfly I covered it in glitter.  Quite the sparkle!
Wishing you all the most beautiful day.  I hope to take some pretty pictures of our Winter Wonderland once it begins.


  1. BEAUTIFUL!! Love the soft color of that gorgeous flower. I can just imagine how sparkly butterfly is in real life.

  2. Gorgeous creation, thanks for joining Penny Black & More @ Allsorts challenge, good luck.
    Happy crafting

  3. Very pretty Donna! Beautifully coloured!

  4. This stamp set is fun to work with and you have really done it justice. Love the simple soft color of the flower surrounded by the green leaves and the pop of red. Great how you offset the main panel and used a butterfly all gittery and pretty.

  5. Beautiful flower and butterfly. like how you positioned the focal image leaving a bit of the pp peeking out on one side and top. Lovely, my friend.

  6. Wow, great take on that challenge. I love what you have done with the Beautiful Day flower, always a winner in my book. You have colored it beautifully and the butterfly along with the striped background paper makes this card just over the top gorgeous.

  7. Just beautiful! I love how you have coloured that gorgeous flower.

  8. Oooo absolutely stunning and such gorgeous colouring too, thanks for joining us at Penny Black & More this month, Luv Sam x

  9. Love you took the photo inspiration and made it your own! Awesome composition and use of colors, Donna! Thanks so much for playing Altenew February Inspiration Challenge! FABULOUS!
