And now onto today's card:
Which was inspired by this silly photo of my little pea:
I loved the color combo in Courtney's shirt, but decided to go with a butterfly theme rather than flowers, mostly because I wanted to try a technique for coloring the butterflies that I learned from Jill Foster (jillianavery8222 on Flickr) in her fabby tutorial she did for the Hero Arts blog, HERE. You might say I was inspired by Jill! Which, by the way, happens to be the name of her FANTASTIC blog!! Jill is an amazing stamper, I am always in awe of her creations! Her blog is so much fun - she picks a different stamper to be inspired by each week. Well would you believe this week she picked ME?!?! It's been such a thrill to see what she's come up with every day!! You can see all of her Libby-inspired (squeal!) cards HERE.
And because Jill and I are sort of blogging together this week (although granted she is ACTUALLY blogging, so far I've just been sitting back watching her blog, LOL!), it only made sense to invite her to play along with this week's challenge. Here's what she came up with:
Jill is the queen of gorgeous backgrounds, and this one does not disappoint! And she also went with a beautiful butterfly, but a completely different style than mine. The pearl is such a perfect touch. I love your card, Jill! Thanks so much for playing along!
