Jeweled Butterfly


It's such a pretty day outside. I think it may have been in the 70s all day! We've been staying much warmer than that, so even though I have been enjoying the autumn colors in Blogland and in my decorated house, it didn't feel like fall outside. It's headed our way I do believe. It may be here this weekend. hahaha
I started stamping this afternoon and decided to pull out my Friends & Flowers Simply Scrappin kit- a gift from a sweet forever friend-
Lori. I hadn't played with this kit yet. Why? I have no idea! I love the colors. So sweet!

Details, details- I started out paper piercing this cool butterfly on So Saffron with a Paisley background of the same color. I added jewels to the thorax of the butterfly and mounted this piece on Choc Chip. DP and corner embellishments are also for the SS Kit. I used my scalloped scissors on a strip of the DP. The Tres Chic background is stamped in Certainly Celery on Certainly Celery cardstock (my very last piece... I have only scraps left....boohoo!!). Forever Friends is from Hampton Art Stamps and is stamped in Choc Chip.
This is Sara's Sketch #19- today's sketch! I'm off to finish Beate's Sketch too. Katie, Kevin and I are babysitting Ashton and his big brother and sister tomorrow. It'll be fun to have a baby to play with all day so I don't know how much blogging or stamping I'll get done.
Have a blessed weekend!
I feel like stamping~
