One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

The Challenge #85

The Inspiration challenge over at The Challenge # 85 is rainbows and celebrating!
Thank you Lesley for this fun challenge and for being back to creating cards!  Love to see your work and have missed you!
Lin and I went to the Stamp & Scrapbook Expo today at the Puyallup, WA Fair grounds.  We have not been before and it was great fun!  We did spend a wee bit of money *wink!
This die is one that I purchased.
It is a Memory box die called Butterfly Swell!
I used the Distress Oxide inks to blend my rainbow and then die cut my butterflies.
I added some Nuvo Jewel Drops and a sentiment from Memory Box: Spring Lilacs
I am celebrating my BFF this week!  We are together and having a blast making cards and trying new techniques.  AND we are celebrating her birthday which isn't until the 24th but I will be gone by then!!
Thanks for stopping by and visiting friends!

Heart Hugs, friends!
