I knew I needed a little break from studying and writing all these essays when I ended up with a tension headache. The sketch for this card just came to me; and before I took a nap, I scribbled on a piece of paper. I had looked at so many cards on Pinterest and SCS that it is probably inspired by a combination of designs but I can't think anyone in particular right now. The colors are from SCS Color Challenge 393. This card represents 2 of my favorite things: coffee and butterflies. The background DP has little butterflies fluttering by, which makes this card qualify for the Flutter By Wednesday #207 challenge. I colored the gems with my alcohol markers to get exact matching shades of Lucky Limeade and Primrose Petals. I used my piercing tool around the edges of the DP.

This is a card I made as a sample for my card-making class last month. I am just now getting to post it because much of my free time has been taken up by online BSN classes. I apologize for the poor photo quality. I used a different lighting and placement in my home and it doesn't work as well as my bathroom. This card uses a really neat (and easy) layering technique that I know I will be using again. This technique is known by a few names but I think Seamless Tiers describes it best. SCS Technique Lover's Challenge 388 showcased this style a couple months ago.
Stamps: New Mercies - Verve, Psalm 130:5 from Scripture Collection 7- ODBD
Paper: Old Olive, WW
Ink: Daffodil Delight, Baja Breeze, Old Olive
