Do you ever have a Creative Block???
I did the other week. Everything I tried just didn't seem to work.
Anyway. This is when desperation steps in and we learn to lean on a friends (that is why they are there after all! LOL)
I had a beautiful swap card from my Stampin Up Buddy Carolyn. She had made it using the Baby Wipe Technique. So there was my inspiration! A Baby Wipe Technicolour card just like Carolyns.
Here is hers.
And here is mine.

The pretty circle stamp is from Everything Eleanor and the butterfly is from Papillion Potpourri (boy do I use that set a lot!). Happy Birthday is from Perfectly Penned.
Window Frames Collection Framelits and the new Beautifully Baroque Embossing Folder were used also.
You may be wondering how I came up with these colours... certainly I would never have thought of this combination myself.
No I used my Handy Dandy Colour Coach to find the colours that coordinate. p.139 main catalogue. What a life-saver that little swatchbook is!
$24.95. p.139 of the catalogue.
While we are on the subject of butterflies..my friend Gail brought along a cute butterfly made from that pretty flower trim we had in the last mini. She saw how to do this on Youtube.
Thanks for dropping by. I have had a bit of a cold this week but am on the mend.
Eating plenty of this.
Thanks for visiting.
