Inkspirational #83 "Purple", SSS Wednesday Challenge "Anything Goes"

Hello all of you who still bother to stop by here...

My recovery is very slow but it is getting better. I can now use my fingers on the left hand a bit more which means I can type with two hands again, which is so much faster! I am also trying to stamp a little. Yesterday I wanted to play but didn't know where to start. So I began to clean my messy desk. That often helps with my mojo. I end up wanting to create instead of cleaning up! This is how this card came about.

I had embossed those butterflies with a silver Judikins stamp for another project but ended up not using them. So they sat patiently in the mess on my desk. I didn't want to put them in my odds and ends container for some other time (that never comes) and decided to do something with them. I tried all kinds of backgrounds but they really needed a dark one to stand out.

Stamps: Hero Arts (vine background), Judikins (swirl on butterflies)

Welcome back! I'm so pleased that you are recovering well, Susanne! Your card is a triumph! I think this must be what butterflies do in the dark of night under a full moon! Delicious!! Hugs, Darnell

LIebe Susanne, das freut mich aber, dass es Dir wieder besser geht - man sieht das gleich an Deiner Karte! Die Schmetterlinge sind echt super und der Hintergrundsstempel sieht toll dazu aus!
Karten basteln ist auf alle Faelle besser als aufraeumen.....Du muesstest mal sehen. wie es bei mir aussieht.....Uebrigens, dei Vogel Leinwaende hab' ich fuer meinen Kartenverkauf am Sonntag gemacht - ich weiss bloss nicht was ich dafuer verlangen soll....mal sehn.... wenn sie keiner will behalte ich sie gerne. Mir gefallen sie naemlich auch total gut und verschenken kann ich sie allemal.....

Isn't it fun to move even a little thing off the pile on your desk and in the process find something wonderful to do with it?. So happy you are mending and creating a beautiful card.

Als Schmetti-Fan bin ich ganz begeistert von Deiner Karte. Gut, das Du Dich für den dunklen Hintergrund entschieden hast, die Schmetterlinge leuchten dadurch richtig.
LG Gundi und danke für die herzliche Begrüßung
