Finally... Kitchen Sink Monday

Well, there are still 2 hours left in my Monday so I'm just under the wire with my card for Kitchen Sink Monday this week! I had such a fun weekend in Indiana teaching Copic classes at Joan Fricker's, and got home on Sunday evening and crashed. My intention was to get my card done this morning and posted but my day just didn't go according to plan, so I'm running late.

If you do a little sleuthing on the other Kitchen Sink Crew members blogs, you'll discover that today's Kitchen Sink Monday challenge is actually a bit of a surprise. You can get a jump start on a certain challenge, but I'm not going to give it away here.... you'll have to do just a little leg work of your own to discover the secret!

I did a little clean and simple design with my card, choosing to use this paper from Basic Grey's Urban Prairie 6x6 paper pad to make up the majority of my card. My butterfly is stamped in 3 steps with Memento Angel Pink ink for the first layer, then Rose Bud stamped off once for the second layer. I made sure those two layers of ink were good and dry, then stamped the third layer with Rose Bud ink and embossed with clear embossing powder. The sentiment is from the Simple Sentiments mini set.
Stop by the other Crew members blogs for their beauitful cards for today, and see if you can figure out the big challenge secret!
