Yesterday was my sister's birthday!  Happy Birthday Becky!  I was going to go to her house today but when she woke up she wasn't feeling well.  So since I get sick very easily I had to stay home.  My daughter had plans with a friend so I decided to play with some of my craft supplies.

I got out my new Color Burst by Ken Oliver, some stamps & embossing powders and started to experiment with them.  Here are some of the other backgrounds I made.

I took one of the backgrounds and thought this would make a good thinking of you card.  I searched for a sentiment from Create with TLC and added my new butterflies from Our Daily Bread.  Here is the inside.

I hope you enjoyed this and thanks for visiting me today!

Card Recipe:

Color Burst - Ken Oliver
 Butterfly stamp and die - Our Daily Bread
Coloring medium - Copic markers & Memento
Background stamp & inside border - Stampendous
Sentiments both - Create with TLC
Papers - Bazzill, Cannon & generic

You have been having fun Robin, such a beautiful collection of cards and backgrounds, the one with the blues and purples in particular appeals to me, it's so rich and vivid.

Lovely to see you at Stamping Sensations challenge, many thanks for joining in.
