Hello Blogger Friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with the Charmed Life Blog. I am out in San Francisco taking care of my sweet granddaughter. It's been a whirlwind visit and I am headed home tomorrow. I haven't had an opportunity to post on my blog. Actually at the end of the day I am more than ready to go to bed myself.
I will spend the day flying home to Pittsburgh tomorrow. There is a 3 hour time difference so it seems like all day. I do have a brief layover in Chicago and that helps to break the long flight up some.
Phoenix Daisy was a bit teary eyed at bedtime because I am leaving. But I come back next month for a week so I told her to mark the days on the calendar. She will need Mommy's help for the calendar part and at 5 years old a month will seem like an eternity.
I am anxious to get home to my hubby. When he doesn't come with me I really miss him. What's that about absence making the heart grow fonder?
Now onto this card. I created it for the color challenge #581on Splitcoaststampers. Karen was the hostess and she chose blackberry bliss, wisteria wonder, pear pizzazz and soft sky for her color palette.

On this card I did an emboss resist technique. I used the Stampin'-Up corner garden stamp and stamped with versamark ink and then embossed with white embossing powder. I took the challenge colors and sponged around the image.
Stamped my sentiment which is from the April 2016 Paper Pumpkin kit. I stamped in blackberry bliss ink. I added some pear pizzazz ribbon and a bow, scattered some sequins, die cut a butterfly and attached the panel to the pear pizzazz base.
I gave this card to my daughter-in-law in Pittsburgh for Mother's Day. She is always complimentary with my work.
Well, that's it for me for today. So until next time.......God bless.
