Each Sunday, Mary Jo Price-Williams hosts a Featured Stamper Challenge on Stampin' Connection, an online community for Stampin' Up! demonstrators. Today's Featured Stamper #18 is my friend Wendy Janson !!! She is one incredibly talented stamper, and I just love her creations! I've had the pleasure of meeting Wendy, and have been lucky enough to get together with her a couple of times during her visits to Phoenix! Wendy is busy creating samples for the upcoming Stampin' Up! Convention as a display stamper with top secret products. She is celebrating milestone hits on her blog, and is offering some blog candy HERE.

Unfortunately, I'm not able to link Wendy's card that I CASEd, as it is not on her blog. If you are a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, you can find Wendy's gallery on Stampin' Connection, the the card I CASEd is called "Mojo42".

My card was also inspired by the color
combo from Just Add Ink #19 of Melon Mambo, Taken with Teal, and Elegant Eggplant. The butterfly was created using the Beautiful Wings Embosslit Die. I layered two of the large butterfly images with two mini glue dots down the center and slightly bending the wings of the top butterfly for depth. The center of the butterfly was created by punching Elegant Eggplant CS with the Horizontal Slot Punch.
