Beauty Abounds with Grapefruit Grove Foil

Good Morning Stampers ~ I have a fun card today that uses the Beauty Abounds with Grapefruit Grove Foil.

Well I did not go to Jess’.  Zoie came down with a stomach bug so she rescheduled the birthday party to next weekend.  She has been proactive in trying to prevent Remi and herself from coming down with it.  She has washed everything she can and used wipes on everything.  So far things are ok with the 2 of them.  I am hoping they do not have anything when I have to head that way next Thursday.  I have used the past 2 days to do some resting myself to get rid of the last of this cold.  I have been sleeping in and even taking a nap in the afternoon.

Yesterday I went to the house to meet the landscaper and talk about what I can do.  They have finally finished the siding and the pillar.  I went inside and they have taped everything up and have spent some time painting the trim and doors.  The tile has been laid and installed in the master bath.  I have some decorative tile around the tub and the walk in shower.  I managed to get some pictures so here they are.

I played with the Beauty Abounds bundle for my card today.  I began by stamping the spray using Mossy Meadow ink.  I then used Balmy Blue to stamp some bubbles around the sprays.  I used my Grapefruit Grove reinker and alcohol to color my Silver metallic edged ribbon.  I wrapped the ribbon around the lower portion of the panel I had stamped and then attached the panel to a Mossy Meadow card base.  Using the Beauty Abounds thinlits I cut out  several of the  butterflies using Basic Black card stock.  I also cut out the same butterflies using the Sale-a-bration Grapefruit Grove foil.  I used some Multipurpose Liquid Glue to attach the 2 butterflies together.  The butterflies were then added to the card base.  To finish off the card I added a bow.  Here is the completed Beauty Abounds with Grapefruit Grove Foil.
