This card is for today's H{ippity} Hop Monday! I am using Unity Ippity stamps. This set is called Where You Should Be.   

This card is for QFTD04 at SCS!  Congratulations, Linda!  This is the card I chose to CASE.   I love the look and wanted to create the look with more whimsical images.  I changed the colors.  Instead of adding a sentiment to the oval at the bottom right, I added directly to the focal panel.  Truth be told, my sentiment did not fit any cute oval so I had to adapt.   The black background on my card is embossed with a sizzix texture plate.  It looks great IRL.  Does not show up on camera, though.  I added two butterflies in real red for some added pizazz.  Linda stamped her two butterflies on her card.  I added red gingham tabs and some gold pearls and called it complete.  I really love how it turned out!

Focal Image:    I cut the ivory cardstock to the dimension I needed for my 5.5 card.  I sponged barely banana around edges and a little on the center.  I then added summer sun heavily around the edges.   I stamped the sentiment.  I stamped the flowers.  I created a layout that looked good to me with the sentiment actually stamped on the main image.  However, once this was done, it still needed something more.  This is when I decided to stamped the flowers in the summer sun.  It is subtle, but just enough to give it that finished look.  I added this panel to the card on two layers of foam tape.  It sits up higher and does not have a backing mat.  I am as amazed as you that I did not add another layer.  I actually love this more simplistic look for this particular card!


Thanks so much for hopping by!  As always, your comments are greatly appreciated!

  14. Betty this is fabulous!! I love how the red accents pop against the black and yellows! Thanks so much for playing along with us!! I didn't see your question about ippity challenges to go along with the Hippity Hop until I was gathering the list of blogs participating today. We have the challenge issued on each Monday for Hippity Hop that you could use to make your card for the following Monday's Hop if you would like. But as you did today, we welcome any combination of challenges you would like to incorporate!! :-)
