Taylored Expressions August Blast From the Past Blog Hop!

Hi there! Welcome to the Taylored Expressions August Blast from the Past Blog Hop! Each month, Taylored Expressions has a blog hop for it's customers to join in on the fun...you can find all the details HERE! This month's theme is Crafters Anonymous! That means it's time to use all those supplies we've been hoarding for one reason or another!

I hope you came from Taylor's Blog and if so, you are on the right track! There's a list at the bottom of this post if you need to get back on track too!

Here's my card using Sankari's fun sketch...

I am definitely guilty of hoarding paper and I have been hoarding these gorgeous Pink Paislee Butterfly Garden papers for some time now. I challenged myself to use them, so I paired it up with TE's Discover Your Wings set and created a beautifully framed silhouette using the Spellbinders lacey squares dies. It's sitting up on some pop dots for dimension.

The larger butterfly is also from this set. I stamped it on the dp with Tattered Rose Distress Ink, cut it out, adhered it to some black cardstock and cut an outline around it. The tiny black butterflies are cut with a Marvy punch...I wanted them to mimic the silhouette.

I stitched around the larger panel, added some pearls to the corners and wrapped it all up with some seam binding that was stamped with the Tattered Rose ink to create this custom color. My sentiment is popped up too and a few pearls finish it off nicely!

You're next stop on the hop is Wanda's Blog! Have a great time hopping along today!
