Beate's Weekend Sketch

Here is my submission for Beate's weekend sketch. I know it isn't the weekend anymore, but I'm trying to get back into the swing of things. Today is the first chance I have gotten to sit down and play. And I couldn't wait to use some of the goodies I got in Northern Virginia when I visited Peg. We went to Recollections and to Scrapbooks Plus while I was there.

Two of the ribbon scraps on this card came from Scrapbooks Plus in Chantilly, Virginia. If you live anywhere close to there, they have ribbons by the yard, the prices are very reasonable and the selection is great. Most of the ribbons I splurged on were May Arts and Creative Imaginations. You'll be seeing quite a bit of those in the near future!

Details, details- Card base is River Rock stamped in Canvas and Sanded. Strip is DP from MME "Wild Asparagus". I got these papers for a steal at Hobby Lobby (180 sheets for $10). It is distressed on the edges and mounted on Rose Red- also distressed. Cuttlebug embossed flowers on Whisper White is cut out with CM system and mounted onto Rose Red which I used Scalloped scissors to trim. Then I used my 2 way glue pen and added DD glitter. Butterfly from Priceless is stamped in Kraft White and embossed with Iridescent Ice EP. I colored in the backside with my Rose Red marker. Corner punch and oval punch are also stamped with Sanded in River Rock ink. Thanks is from Much Appreciated and I used Rose Red ink here sponging around the edges as well. Paper Shaper butterfly punches are glued on. Ribbon scraps are May Arts and unknown. Thanks for looking!

I hope to get some pictures of my trip up over the next few days as well as more stamping projects! Come back soon. I won't be going anywhere for a while again.
Hugs for you~

Very pretty card, love the butterfly! Isn't it fun to find a LSS that has wonderful ribbon? Sounds like you had a fun trip. Thanks for sharing a great example of Beate's sketch.
