For Toni's WTUI challenge this week ( https://www.splitcoaststampers.com/f...7-21-a-638667/ )I used a book page - Winston Churchill's account of his early life. Amongst other things he was a correspondent for newspapers, so that's a tie in with the theme. Paper Rose image stamped with Versafine Black and coloured with Polychromos. Some SN clear glitter on the top right eucalyptus leaves. Edged with white acrylic and Stickles. I added this to a 7" x 5" card base sponged with grey DOX and stamped with LOTV grunge corners in Versafine Smokey Grey. Butterfly (BoBunny) stamped on photo paper with AI. I added some colour in with Sharpies. The glossy finish is a lovely contrast with the old paper. The little gold bow on the sentiment tag is from one of the TH funky floral sets. Thank you Jayne for the beautiful flowers. My internet was down at the time I was colouring them, so I relied on my memories from the Botanic Gardens glasshouse, and an old calendar with Australian flowers.

Beautiful card. Love the soft colors with the pop from that butterfly -- you were right about the contrast against the paper -- it's super! I really dig (thought you might be getting tired of "love" LOL) the grunge corners. That adds that subtle but all important touch to take a card from good to great. This is great.
