Happy Thursday!  I am popping in with a fun card.  I am playing along with a few blog challenges.

I am playing along with this week's Papertrey Ink Make It Monday Challenge, Freshly Made Sketches, and Stamp, Ink, and Paper Challenge.

 For my card I started with PTI select white card stock.  I used the cloud images from the Yellow Sunshine stamp set and stamped them all over the panel using spring rain ink.  I used my Tim Holtz stamping platform to ink the clouds up several times.

Next, I used one of the tiny images in the same stamp set to repeat stamp onto the clouds using blueberry sky ink.  I inked up all of the cloud images with the same tiny image to create some texture and dimension on the background.  I added some white gel dots to the centers.

I die cut some blueberry sky card stock and PTI select white using the butterflies from Love Lives Here and Signature Series: Butterfly die.  I layered two of the butterflies in contrast colors.  I die cut the "smile" die from Bold Borders Prism die.  I die cut the word twice with PTI select white and once with blueberry sky card stock and layered together.

 I sponged some versamark onto the bottom of the word for added definition as well as around the blueberry sky butterflies.   I added the panel to a top folding PTI select white card stock base using foam tape.  I finished the card with a few clear sequins.

As always thanks so much for stopping by!
