Happy Monday! I hope all you Momma's out there had a great  day yesterday :) My sister and I took our parents out to dinner. I {heart} family time :)

I also hope you had time to hop along with us during There She Goes Clear Stamps MOABH. Wow there are so many great stamps from them and the inspiration on the hop was amazing!!

Now onto the crafting!

I played along with Penny Black for National Scrapbooking Day. The challenge was to make a monochromatic card, we also only had 24 hours to do it!

I kept mine pretty simple. I stamped the butterfly 3 times, once on bright red and twice on dark red. I fussy cut out the whole butterfly from dark red, the inside layers from the bright red, and the top wing from the second dark red. I adhered the whole butterfly and it's layers flat to the card. For some added dimension I adhered the top wing with foam tape but only on the left edge, the right edge I glued flat. The butterfly and the sentiment are both from Penny Black's To You set.

I added some stardust stickles and some ribbon to complete it.

Thanks for visiting!!
