...exactly the way your are...

Edit: This card was chosen as a Top Crop at Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge 122!

Hi there! I've spent a good part of today in my craftroom, but not exactly creating anything...well I am creating more organized chaos! I decided to re-do (again) my flower storage, my paper storage and my stamps. So, I did sneak a little creative time in though!

This card is for the Paper Sundaes Challenge #27 - Make Your Own Flowers. I have been trying to find the time to learn from this Zoe Pearn tutorial and I finally made the time! You can find it here! I used the sketch from Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge #122 (above) and I was inspired once again by the colors in the yummy cupcakes over at Cupcake Inspirations #68. I'm also playing at Stamp Simply #149 - Two's Company - I used two butterflies!

I am very happy with this first attempt at this flower...there is so much dimension on this card now with the flower and the butterflies that are leaning forward. It's one of those hard to get into an envelope cards!

I guess I better get back to work...who knows, I might be back tonight!

Crafty Recipe:
Stamp: Verve One Person
Inks: Memento tuxedo black, ColorBox dark peony
Paper: Basic Grey dp, Bazzill cardstock, kraft
Other: Recollections pearls, Jolee's butterflies, Fiskars scalloped circle punch

Thanks for stopping by!
