Totally Hues Challenge #2

Hey! Here today to share a card I made for Heather P.'s Totally Hues Challenge #2! If you haven't seen her new challenge yet- pop on over and show her some love! I love Heather's style and these challenges have really taken my out of my color comfort zone- in a good way!

Here's the challenge:

And here's my card:

Ok, guys.... can I just say how much I'm diggin' the new coasters from PTI. So silly, really. They're just coasters... but I'm having so much fun stamping away on them and die cutting them and using them on my cards. So fun.

This is a little different from my usual style- and went crazy stamping on this coaster, but I really LOVE the result! I started by playing around with the new Delightful Doilies set using Aqua Mist and Ocean Tides ink. Then, I pulled out BB: Text Style and stamped it over top with Frayed Burlap Distress Ink. LOVE.

I took the idea of dies cutting the coaster and stamping the frame inside from Nichole- she used this technique here. Loved it, had to try it! I also used the new frame from Tag-It's with Walnut Stain Distress Ink and the sentiment is from Daily Design Sentiments.

The butterfly... beautiful... used the new Bitty Background Blocks to add some detail to the butterfly shapes.

So...... that's a grand total of 6 different stamp sets on this one little card... lol! That's what happens when you get a bunch of new stuff and want to play with it all at the same time!

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you play along with Heather's challenge! It's so fun!
