Stamping 411 meets Array of Shunshine

Good morning my cyber friends!  Hope you are having a wonderful weekend!  Mine has been a busy weekend so far as I spent most of my day at church yesterday working on a fund raiser for a special ministry we are starting.  And then back to church this morning to worship my Lord. 

My card today was inspired by the stamping 411 sketch and I actually added a little more bling than I would have as I looked at the wrong challenge for this week for our SULateNightStampers, but that is okay as I do like the outcome.  But now I have to make another challenge for this weeks challenge.  But that just means I get to spend some more time stamping at some point today!

I used a stamp set I had not used yet.  The hostess stamp set "Array of Sunshine" and have decided I really like that set.

Here is a close up of the card!

Here you can see that I stamped the image first on the card stock I would use on the card and then stamped it again and cut it out, popped it up right above the original stamp.  It gives it dimension by doing this way.  The butterflies and pearls were the added bling that I might have left off is I had realized I did the wrong challenge!  But I do love using the pearls and butterflies.

A side view of the card!

And of course the inside of the card!  Can't forget that as I love doing the insides!
