I loved the colors this week over at Play Date Cafe:

I sat down this morning to make a card with just plain cardstock (that's something you won't find from me often!), and here is my result:

I made the butterflies blue by misting white cardstock with sapphire glimmer mist.  Then I stamped the butterflies over the paper with black archival ink.  They are sparkly (if you click on the card, you will see it closer) because I sprayed the stamped butterfly then with iridescent gold glimmer mist.  This is a very simple card, but I like how pretty it turned out.

Simply beautiful. Sometimes it's good to step out of our comfort zone and see what we come up with, don't you think? I love what you did with all cardstock.
