butterfly kisses...



Good morning...I'm working today so I just have a quick post to share with you. I'm playing for the first time over at three different challenges...I'm using the sketch from Paper Sundaes Challenge 22, KL Stampin n Scrappin Challenge 35 is to 'get shabby' and Joan's Gardens Challenge #2 is asking for vintage and the use of Spellbinders Nestabilities. It also qualifies for Meljen's Challenge #12 - Fiber, Ribbon and Lace.

I started by stamping this sweet little image of Party Emma by CC Designs with Memento Rich Cocoa. I colored her with copics (E00, E000, E13, E57, G82, BG72, RV11, RV23) and added a couple tiny little Recollections pearls to her dress as buttons and in her hair as a 'barrette.' I think she looks like she is going to put that ribbon in her hair! I cut her out using the Spellbinders Classic Scalloped Ovals Large Nestabilities and used a trick I learned from Becca Feeken for the mat using the same size die.

The papers are all Making Memories Garden Party and are all edged in Rich Cocoa for a vintage feel. On the bottom is a shabby layer of crinkled ribbon, lace, and more of the MM papers with a little Ranger Distress Vintage Photo stickles on the polka dots to add a little dimension and bling. The slightly distressed flowers peeking out from the top of the bow are Making Memories too! Prima flowers top it all off with a touch of pearls and the butterfly is Martha Stewarts's classic butterfly punch with some light green pearls!

I really hope you like it...if so, please leave a comment!

Have a great Saturday!
