Mariana Grigsby made this fantastic card with that gorgeous butterfly in the middle. I took that into my card and used a butterfly as a focal image as well. I made my own background paper by using some stamped images. I know that the card is a little dark, (not my usual colors), but I just love the purple with the hawaiian shores cardstock.
As you might have read in my previous posts, my EK Success edge punch couldn't punch through PTI cardstock! I was sooo disappointed. It got STUCK punched, and I was using a much lighter cardstock from Paper Company. It's really sad because I love this design. Are you having the same problem with EK Success stamps? I was so frustrated with it I almost banged it on the table to try to dislodge it. Thankfully my hubby is such a handy guy! He fixed it for me! :)
