Howdy all, again today! I decided I wasn't working too hard around the house today, so I spent some more time in the stamp room. Should have been cleaning it, but there's always tomorrow :o) Here's what I came up with today. The layout is from the Saturday Sketch Challenge at Stamping 411
Here is the sketch that was the inspiration.
When I saw the sketch I knew I wanted to try out one of the new Beveled Windowpanes that have been hanging around here far too long unopened! Card base is Early Espresso. The next layer is So Saffron that I textured with the new Framed Tulips embossing folder. I sponged lightly over the texturing with Early Espresso. Next are two layers of DSP from the Botanical Gazette pack that I sized to sit inside the tulip frame. I tore the bottom of the Olive Butterfly print with the Tearing edge and layered it over the Natural print. I sponged all the edges with Early Espresso. At the bottom on the Natural print I stamped 'happy birthday' from All Holidays in Early Espresso. The main imaged was sized to fit the largest Beveled Windowpane with an Early Espresso layer behind Very Vanilla. I stamped the butterfly in Early Espresso and colored him with Old Olive & So Saffron (carefully so as not to bleed the Early Espresso). Below the butterfly I stamped the "no. 147" from the set. I attached the butterfly image to the card where I wanted it, then attached Early Espresso Taffeta ribbon to each side. The ribbon is attached to the back of the card, and each end is anchored with an Antique Brad.
Thanks for stopping by!!
