Good Sunshiney Monday Morning

I can't get enough of this taste of Spring-like weather we are having. I am totally drinking in the sunshine!!! I'm glad you're all here for another fabulous Monday of {ippity} inspiration. I just love these H{ippity} Hops!!! This week our challenge is to Dry Emboss! Use your {ippity} stamps (need some ippity??? I'd be happy to send you some) and keyword IHHC14 when you upload to SCS for a chance at a prize. Here's my card for the challenge this week. I used the new My Mind's Eye paper,Quite Contrary-mmmmmm, love this pack. My dry embossing was achieved by my favorite and quickest way, the swiss dots embossing folder. I did up a whole panel in rose red with it. The stamp set is What Matter's Most! I'm still sending FREE 6x6 paper packs of this dp, with every $50 order! SHOP HERE!Here's a close up of the butterflies and sentiment. Yes, I cut out a bunch of those butterflies and attached them with dimensionals. It was worth the effort. I finished off the inside since my card base was chocolate cs. I'm getting much better at doing this, it really makes a statement AND doesn't take any extra time at all.
ETA: almost forgot to say, this sketch is from Jen DelMuro, A Sketch For You To Try. I've been a long time lurker and finally put one of her's to work!

Make sure you visit the {ippity} blog for the full list of participants (the list keeps getting longer and longer each week-I ♥ THAT! ) Enjoy your day! Hugs, Lisa
