I Miss You, Vicki!

Here's a card I made last night using *Wink *Wink Ink's stamp, "Beauty". All the papers are from Die Cuts With a View, the brad is from Making Memories (bought at Target), and I colored in the image with Prismacolor pencils and blended with Gamsol. For the stitching look I used my Uni-ball Signo brand, white pigment ink pen. I LOVE that pen! It's my favorite one for writing anything in white on dark papers. I made this card for an online friend I've been missing, Vicki of Stamped Smiles. She's taking some time off for family stuff (house work and such) and I've been thinking about her a lot, so thought I'd make her a card!

Here's the list of challenges I'm participating in with this card:
One Stop Craft Challenge - Things With Wings (there are a bunch of butterflies on the DCWV cardstock I chose).
Simple Doodles - Inspire Others (I always hope to inspire others!)
OWH Stars and Stamps - Hardware (the big brad)
The Creative Cottage Challenge Blog - Going Green (one of my papers has mostly green).
Simon Says Stamp! - Things With Wings (butterfly cardstock)
Crafty Creations - Distressing
Our Creative Corner - Butterflies
Stampavie and More - Lace & Botton (I hope that yellow thing I made with my punch will count as lace!)
Stamp With Fun - Animals
