New Beginnings

Happy New Year to All!  The new year has come with some exciting new challenges for me, one of which is having the opportunity to be a part of the SU Creative Crew Challenge team over at Splitcoaststampers.  For the next four months, I will be creating projects to inspire others playing along in the challenges.  This month's challenges are now open for you to join us. 
The Catalog Focus Challenge has us focusing on stamps, ink and paper ONLY!  No goodies like, dies, ribbons or buttons!  Here is one of my catalog focus cards-

I just love how this oversized butterfly is paired with the "Wish BIG" sentiment.  The image panel is matted on black and popped up on dimensionals onto a black card base.  This card is fun and easy to do, albeit a little time consuming with all of the watercoloring!

Thanks so much for stopping by and may your New Year be a creative one!
