Arnold Grummer and Stampendous Earth Day Blog Hop

***This post will remain at the top until the end of the Blog Hop***

Hello, friends and visitors!

Welcome to our Earth Day Blog Hop for Arnold Grummer
and Stampendous!
Today I'm using more handmade paper from my blizzard day stash!
This is what I made:

I had so much fun making this one! 
Here's how I did it:

I began by recycling some black and white junk mail into handmade paper,

Then I used this fabulous Stampendous WindowRama Die Set
and did some cutting.
You can see the two front frame pieces were cut from a different paper.
That was my Sewing Pattern handmade paper.
Then I went in with some Perfect Pearls mists,
and sprayed as follows:
Forever Blue - Background;
Green Patina - Front Frame and Leaves;
Heirloom Gold - Frame Insert Pieces.

Once the mist was all dry,
I used Memento Tuxedo Ink to stamp the lovely scene on the blue background. 

When we consider Earth Day,
and any changes we should make,
we do it for the generations to come.
So I thought a child in my scene would be appropriate!

Then I simple had to adhere all the pieces together.
Finally, I punched some tiny little butterflies out of one of the leaf pieces,
and adhered them in place.

Here you can see the pretty shimmer!
The handmade paper took it beautifully!

Here's one final look at the finished card:

Thanks so much for looking at my project!
Now onto all the Blog Hop business!
