A Little Note..

Good morning!! Today I have a little WOW! Embossing inspiration for this month's challenge theme, which is Stars and Stripes. I automatically think of Red/White/Blue, July 4th and the USA when I hear 'stars and stripes' so I decided to steer another direction and I have made a card in sweet pink, blue & yellow using powders from the Pastel collection.

I embossed the background stripes with Pastel Blue and matted it with a pink cardstock. Then I handcut a couple of stars and embossed them with Pastel Pink, adding some blue to the edges. I used the Pastel Yellow for the butterfly, which is from the With Love clear stamp set, and scissor cut it out before adhering it to a double layer of white card using 3D foam dots. 

The sentiment, stamped out with Archival Black ink, is also from the With Love set. To embellish I added a couple of buttons flossed with twine.
