Mystic Garden

I bought the Mystic Garden kit awhile back, it included the stamps, papers, butterfly stickers, step card bases and envelopes and some foiled diecuts that I didn't use on today's card. After stamping I fussy cut the butterfly on the left and around the bird cage so it would fit better on the card.  I decided to stamp the other directly onto the piece of paper, and add it to the middle step.

I didn't have the greatest lighting when taking these pictures and once again, put the card in the mail before seeing how the pictures turned out, it is amazing how they can look good in that little screen on the camera and then you download and oh wow they are bad.

Here is a close up of the stamps, I added a little clear glitter pen to the butterfly, I think that is what that comes out looking a bit shiny. The close up is a little more like the colors I remember it being, LOL!

We had quite the storm that went through early this morning, high winds a bit of hail and heavy rain.  We seemed to make it through ok but there are reports of a lot of down limbs, 50,000 people are without power and a semi was toppled over because of the high winds and it closed down Interstate 70.  Hope all those in line of this storm make it through ok.

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by today and I hope you have a lovely weekend!!

What a lovely card. The lighting looks good from my end.

Glad you kept safe during your windy weather. Sounds serious.

Connie, I am a sucker for anything "garden". Love what you did with everything. The glitter does add a nice touch to the butterflies. xo

A whole kit, and you're so good about using it. Looks like some pretty stuff, and certainly a pretty card! I know what you mean about the pictures. No matter how good they look in that little camera display, I always have to do a lot of editing. Glad you didn't suffer too much from the storm. Some didn't fare so well and I hope your area recovers soon, or has already recovered.

What a gorgeous card design and color Connie. Hope your weather improves.
