Flight of the Butterfly!
I got my newest SU! set, Flight of the Butterfly, from the UPS man this week and I was thrilled! However, I didn't actually have a chance to play with it until today! My creative juices have been running on low all week due to the fact that school has sapped every ounce of energy out of me so, after so much needed rest, I was finally able to come up with a fairly cute card and I really like the end results! I used this week's SCS sketch challenge to get me started and pulled out some yummy Haiku dsp. I then paired the old olive dsp up with some tangerine tango ribbon and added a touch of so saffron to the mix! What a great color combination this turned out to be! I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to line up the butterfly images and cut out one layer so that it would look like the butterfly was flying off the card. To give the card a finished look I added some certainly celery brads (I don't have old olive). I can truly say that I love this card so I am a happy girl! I was so frustrated yesterday that I could not come up with anything good to share with you and I felt like giving up completely on this whole stamping bit...ok...maybe not to that extent...but you understand right?!? Luckily, I am much better today. I got my house cleaned, made a few cute cards, and even had time to talk on the phone with my wonderful mom and dad for over an hour! I guess it's been a pretty successful day! Now I am just waiting for my beloved hubby to come home so that I can hug and kiss him! It's crazy how lost I feel when he is gone. I hate leaving the house for some reason. Anyway, sorry for the randomness in this post! I hope that you are enjoying your Saturday! Take care!
