Ok, so once again Just Us Girls has a technique challenge and this is another one I've never done before. It's a shaving cream technique and I may have to use it again sometime!

I love the bright colors I used but struggled to figure out what to do for the card design. I
knew I wanted to use the paper created with the technique as a background but tried 3
other ideas for the rest of the card before settling on this. First I stamped a floral flourish
and wasn't happy with it. Then I stamped balloons and didn't like that either and then I
stamped some butterflies and colored them but didn't like the way they turned out so I just
decided to go with these punched butterflies.  Then I couldn't figure out how to add a
sentiment that looked okay with the rest of the design so I went without thinking this
would make an okay all occasion card. So the you have it. Thanks for taking a look!


  1. Lovely card! The colors you chose are a super take on the challenge! And your matching butterflies put this one over the top! Thanks for joining us this week at Just Us Girls!

  2. I too love bright colors and your card does not disappoint! Don't worry, not every card needs a sentiment on the front, that's what the inside is for!! Thanks for joining us at Just Us Girls!

  3. Absolutely lovely card! Love the bright colors you managed to get with this technique....which can be tricky as sometimes it gets muddy. Really nice job! Thanks for playing along with us at Just Us Girls again Judy!

  4. Lovely colors! Such a pretty swirly background. Love that the butterflies match. Thanks for joining us at Just Us Girls!
