Don't Regret What Made You Laugh

Hi everyone it is Monday and the start of a new altered card challenge, I thought while I'm waiting for the paint to dry that I would post a card I made yesterday in between sorting.  Yes, I'm still sorting through boxes and containers. I'm not sure what my original idea was when I painted and stamped the sentiment panel but this is what I came up with.

The sentiment was stamped on card stock I had painted. Then stamped with a lace background. I think I didn't use it because the lace was stamped on crooked.  In the same box was the frame which was cut with my Silhouette and the card stock painted. The butterfly is one I bought at Dollar Tree many years ago. I noticed yesterday that at least my Dollar Tree still has them. I did cut the wire and twist the two wires together at the bottom of the butterfly. The flower is a combination of a piece of gold ribbon I cut with a Sizzix die and a flower I had cut with my Cameo. I had used my home made glitter sprays on the color it. It is really glittery and shimmery but hard to photograph.

I love this sentiment. It just happened to be in a set by Inkadinkado. I don't know if it is still available or not.

Well a friend had to go into the next town so offered to take me to Jo Ann's.  I got a photo storage container for 40% off. In fact I ended up saving what  one storage container cost.  I will probably buy more containers later either on sale or with a coupon. I only have 50 plus years of  photos to go through.I used a 50% off coupon for a butterfly stamp set I have wanted for a couple of years. I decided to buy only a single glitter fabric marker instead of the whole set. I'm not sure if it will work in my air brush. I can always buy the set at a later date with a coupon. Anyway the paint should be dry by now so I'm off to put things away and work on my altered cards.

Wishing you Happy Frugal Crafting till we meet again!
