Stamp Happens

I made this card last night while my 8 yr old was at a friends house, my 2 yr old was asleep and my 2 week old was napping. Yup, hubby & I got a bit of quiet time, but not for cuddling....haha....rather for card making (on my part)!

Yesterday I recieved my stamp set from Stamp Happens (see below) in the mail, and was just DYING to use it. I won this set of stamps from them after being randomly chosen at the Delightful Sketches Challenge blog! The set is soooooooooooo cute, & the rubber image stamps so smooth & even!

After checking my challenges, I noticed a couple I could enter this card in, however, did not get a chance to enter it into A Spoon Full of Sugar (Pink, Black & White) as by the time I finished the card, it was late & I HAD to get to bed. So I thought I would enter it this morning.................NOT! New challenge is on today! DANG! Regardless, the other challenges I prepared this card for are Dutch Dare Challenge (color inspiration- see pic of T-shirt), Charisma Card Challenge (something for kids) , & the sketch from Friday Sketchers .

I colored my girl with watercolor pencils, blending stumps & baby oil. All the papers are misc., as are the button brads & prima flowers. I used a CTMH stamp set called Butterfly Wings for the butterflies & swirls. I also thought it was about time to get out the handy dandy mini-sewing machine for the border of the black paper! I tiny bit of distressing and VOILA.....almost a masterpiece!
