Got Paint! Challenge

First of all, don't forget to post a comment to let me know about your favorite stamping company. It's a couple of posts down...you could win some great blog candy. The last day to comment is October 15th.

Okay, now to the card. I decided I just had to enter the Got Paint! Challenge over at Caardvarks. You can definitely tell I've been painting....it's all over my hands.

I love paint! I used a scalloped foam stamp, added and then cut around the scallops so you can see the edge of the inside of the card. I painted that part red. I also did a green border with the black. I distressed all the way around the BG paper with black paint and also painted the butterfly with red and added Crystal Stickles all around it. I tied on an organza ribbon and stamped {celebrate} on the top of the card. I put five gigantic red rhinestones on a natural circle on the card. I love BG paper!

Supplies:
Making Memories paint--black, red, green
Faux rhinestones--Walmart
Ribbon--from ribbon stash
Stickles--Frosted Lace and Diamond
Heidi Swapp ghost butterfly
Making Memories foam stamps--"celebrate", {}, scallops
Bazzill cardstock in white
Basic Grey Scarlet's Letter
