Anything Goes at 7 Kids College Fund!

*** This is my second post of the day! For Day 3 of the My Craft Spot Stamp Release Party, please CLICK HERE or scroll down! :o) ***

*** Edit: This was made in advance for a future I Feel the Love Project recipient, which has turned out to be August's! I pray it is a blessing! ***

Hello again! Today starts a new Anything Goes challenge at the 7 Kids Challenge Blog! I made a peaceful card to tell someone that they are in my prayers. :o)
My base was created with the Spellbinders Gold Labels 4 set. It's such a pretty shape! To create my popped-up frame for the front, I simply cut into an extra Gold Labels 4 layer with the coordinating Nestabilities Labels 4. The embossed areas of the frame are inked with Tim Holtz Faded Jeans distress ink.

The focal point is a lovely stamp from Crafty Individuals, titled Wild Flowers and Butterflies. To create a twilight setting for it, I blended three shades of distress ink, beginning with the lightest: Tumbled Glass, Broken China, and Faded Jeans. Tiny rhinestones serve as sparkly paths for the butterflies and also adorn the frame. :o) 

The beautiful sentiment is from My Craft Spot's Tiny Tags 2 stamp set, which is cut out with the coordinating Tiny Tag Metal Dies. A simple bow finishes it off, created with Blueberry Trendy Twine, also from My Craft Spot.

You have two weeks to play along with us, so I hope you'll join the fun at the 7 Kids Challenge Blog! Have a beautiful and blessed day! :o)
