Well, today I squeezed in some time to stamp. I needed a little push to get started. I checked out the challenges for today and they just did not appeal to me. So I randomly opened the catalog and took a color combo and a layout. My catalog opened to page 36. I did very few changes. I swapped out the stamp set for one that I had. It made it easier to actually make the card ;). Since my image was a bit smaller I did some piercing along the top. I moved the brads to the bottom and made it 3 since that matched the piercing pattern at the top. I use the piercing template to make sure my brads are straight. I did brush around the edges with Chocolate chip. The flower image is clear embossed over Chocolate chip craft ink. The butterfly is on a pop up glue dot. I wanted to use the poly-twill ribbon from the mini. I could not decide which color to use. Since they both fit, I used them both. :) I do not know why I do not just grab the catalog more often for inspiration...
