    Yikes! You gotta love it when a card is so gorgeous…yet…simply made. Okay, there are a few steps, but do-able! LOL OMGosh, does it look stunning in the end!!! Of course, YOU had ME at butterflies (my favs), but after watching the video I really like the other elements along the way: never thought to make that wide oval on the side, nor have I explored stamping with water…although I have the tools for both of those techniques. Wow, inspiration…ya think? LOL I have been coming and going and watching your fab videos…thanks so much for sharing!!! (PS Your videos are so fun, love every one I watched so far!!)

  3. Love your card. I always call the color “Pickled” too.

  4. No matter how simple your card is, there is always a new technique for us. Thanks again Darlene. I love it!

  5. Very sweet card! Really love IO gradation stamp. Loved what you did with the Hollyhocks! Thanks for the video!

  6. Meli Isen says:

  7. Yvonne Williams says:

    For such a simple card it sure turned out awe inspiring. I love the raspberry distress ink too and that black and white together really pop.

  8. Margaret says:

    Can’t believe the great ideas you come up with! Love all the different elements of this card and I think I pretty much have most of the bits needed to make it. Again, a big thanks for sharing all your hard work with us.

  9. Beautiful card! I just love the way the butterflies look and the gradation background stamp is so great.

  10. Very pretty card, and I enjoyed your tutorial Darlene… I love that you speed up the parts that are repetitive after showing the basic technique. Thank you!

  11. Love the card! Thanks for taking the time to share your talents and inspiration.

  12. Gotta say, lovin’ this color combo…also lovin’ the IO background (I own it too). Perfect card.

  13. Thank You for sharing. I look forward to seeing what will be posted on Wednesdays. I love your cards. You do an amazing job.

  14. Mary Ann Huntington says:

    Wow, that card really grabs you. So many new techniques. I learned a lot, Darlene.

  15. Wow Wow Wow! This is so lovely. Such a master designer you are. Was having a very frustrating day and you made it all better!! Your Wednesday interludes are like therapy to me! With all the snow and cold we have had here in the midwest, you reminded me that spring is on its way…

    Thanks so much.

    Gorgeous card Darlene!! Love that pink color and the way that you arranged those beautiful butterflies “flying” up. What a clever idea to sponge ink on the paper and then, stamp your image using only water, WOW!! I must try this, looks amazing.
    Thank you for another fantastic video, as always, you are such a treat to watch.
    Have you had any Ben and Jerry’s lately?????

  17. Love this card, Darlene! Absolutely beautiful!

  18. Such a beautiful card! Thanks for sharing!

    Another winner. The Picked Raspberry is a gorgeous color. It was very clever to create the arch with a Spellbinder. I will have to remember that, and stamping with water.

  20. Love the half oval cutout….need to remember to do things like that more. And I love that ink color….too pretty!
    thanks for another great video!

  21. This is such a simple card but it packs such an elegant punch. Love your videos. I always learn something new!
