Enjoy the Butterflies

* Happy New Year!! *

I hope you are all well and that you had a great time seeing in the new year. 
Seems crazy to be writing 2013! 

Over at Try Stampin on Tuesday Jenn has once again given us a great sketch to work with: 

Here's my take on it:

I started with a crumb cake base and added a piece of Belle Bleu retired dsp (love this paper - I'm annoyed I never bought more ;) I then added scallop trim in very vanilla and not quite navy. For my image panel I stamped onto water colour paper in black staz on, two of the three butterflies from 'Kindness matters', coloured them with my blender pen using not quite navy ink and fussy cut them out. I then mounted them onto dimensionals onto my panel. My sentiment is from 'Fabulous phrases' and cropped with my 3/4" circle punch and layered onto a 1"circle. I added some pearls to the corners and added a double bow. I love the end result and will be using this sketch again for sure!

So now it's your turn. Find a quite moment and join us over at Try Stampin' On Tuesday, we love seeing what you create :)
