Bold and Beautiful Inspiration Blog Hop

 Hi there! Today the Gina K Design Team are showcasing the new Free With Three set for this month, Bold and Beautiful. This is a fabulous new set that you can get free when you purchase three stamp sets from Gina K Designs. All the details for my card are below, but first, check out what the rest of the design team has to show you.

I stamped the butterfly with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and used Copic markers to color, starting with V04.

Added V12. 

Added B11. 

Added B13. 

Added B24. 

I used V04 again over the blue to make it a bit brighter. 

I used circle Nestabilities to cut my background and sponged Memento Cantaloupe ink.

Then sponged Memento Tangelo ink.

I used the iris to stamp a border around the circle using Memento Cantaloupe ink.

I layered my background with Pure Luxury Sweet Mango, cut using Lacy Circle Nestabilities. The butterflies were cut out and adhered with Pop dots. I stamped the sentiment on Pure Luxury Ivory and sponged the edges with Memento Tangelo. The card base is also Ivory, 4.5 by 4.5 inches. I used my Scor-Pal to score horizontal lines at the top and bottom.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful day!
