The sample is the top card on page 27. It used the Butterflies Thinlets to make some kind of impression into the cardstock but also has the impression highlighted with ink.
Here is what I came up with and I think it's pretty close to how the Stampin' Up! designer made the sample.
Here's a close up:
I added some stamped off splatters from Gorgeous Grunge across the butterfly and some full strength splatters on the Crumb Cake card base and Best Year Ever DSP (SAB). The DSP is also lightly sponged with Crumb Cake ink.
The thank you from Lotus Blossom (SAB) stamped in Rich Razzleberry (that obviously needed to be reinked!).
I raided my little stash of ribbon bits and pieces for the embellishments and found a few of those sweet flowers that we carried last year (I think!). The Occasion catalog has some nice pink one in the Artisan Embellishment kit if you like this look! I sponged some Crumb Cake ink on the flower to keep with the vintage-y look.
I used 2 challenges to bring this card together: Create with Connie 337 & Mary and ColourQ 274
Thanks for looking! Did you stamp today?
