Time to get to it! I've had 3 days to work on Stacey's Sunday challenge over at Stacey's Stamping Stage and it was about time to make it happen!I've had this Fine Flourish stamp for about a month now. So, when I saw Stacey's card it gave me a bit of inspiration. To mimic those beautiful fine color striations in the butterflies wings somehow. After stamping my Pink Pirouette cardstock I ran it through the Big Shot using my Bigz Beautiful Butterflies Die. I like the effect.I really wanted to keep it Clean & Simple, so I used the sketch for this weeks Stamping 411 challenge. I did change the sentiment placement, though. This phrase is from Always, in case you're wondering.
I did some sewing on my ribbon again. I just love sewing on my cards. This is a favorite technique, for sure. I also really like sewing down the butterfly. It gives it dimension without have to use and dimensionals. I have LOTS of thread, so I had a good match for the Rich Razzleberry! I think I miss sewing more than I realize, so I am going to schedule myself some sewing time this weekend. But today, I think I'll work on more cards!
