Look Ma! No Stamping!

Rarely do I create a card design without using stamps, but that's what I did today with my Butterfly Rag Bag inspired design today.  Anne gave us the Henrietta's Handbags website for our inspiration challenge today on Splitcoaststampers, and I chose this cute Quilted Rag Bag

All I used for this card is my Beautiful Wings Embosslits by Stampin' Up, some fun white and black polkadotted designer paper, my deckled rectangle Nestabilities, a white gel pen, and dimensionals.  I distressed the edges of the white and black designer paper further with my finger to resemble the rag look in the inspiration piece.

I've been down with a cold the past few days with absolutely no ambition to stamp, so it felt good to get back into my stamp room for a little while this morning.

Love the pretty flutter of butterflies against the black and white on this Charlene - hope you feel better - and Happy Mother's Day!
