QKR Stampede Challenge #234 - ATG w/optional Twist Thank you

It's time for a new challenge at QKR Stampede and our optional twist this week is "Thank You Cards".  I took about 8-10 pictures of my card and I'm still not happy with it.  I guess it's the purple that doesn't photograph so looks SO MUCH better in person!  The image is called Iris, colored with copics, clear wink of stella on the yellow centers,  cut out and matted with SB majestic labels 25.  Card stock from Hobby Lobby, Stampin' Up! beautiful wings butterfly die with wink of stella on them, and thank you in dusty concord distress ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.

Stop by QKR Stampede's challenge blog to see what my DT sisters have made for your inspiration and join our fabulous challenge!  The prize for winning is 2 digital images of your choice, but if you use a QKR image you will win 3 digital images of your choice!  Hope to see you there!

  2. It's a really classy design. I think this card is beautiful even in the photo, but I often feel the same way, that a photo doesn't do a card justice.

  6. Brenda, I was amazed at your gorgeous card when I saw it on the QKR site since you colored the image so well and I think being monochromatic it just pops out so well. This would be perfect as an Easter card as well.
