I guess you can say that I "fabricated" this one!!!




This is my card for this week's Splitcoast Stampers "Sketch Challenge" (SC272) and if you want to play too you can find all the pertinent info here! The reason I said "fabricated" is that I used some beautiful fabric that I found at a new quilting store in my area on Tuesday....naturally I could not resist buying a piece of it!!! I adhered it to a piece of cereal box that I cut using my Pazzles Inspiration Creative Cutter and then ran through my Xyron machine. The absolutely gorgeous 100% silk ribbon that I used came from Sharon Johnson at "No Time to Stamp" and if you would like to purchase some from her, you can find it here. I hate to admit it, but I bought my first order from her about a year ago and I've been hording it and I just ordered some more from her a couple of weeks ago and I'm going to start using it more often. It's so great to work with and it looks stunning!!!! For the "medallion" I used a corner punch by Martha Stewart and Becca's (Amazing Paper Grace) technique.

Now, to the butterfly and you can get a better, larger view of it by clicking on my photo above. A dear friend of mine sent me this birthday card for my birthday in 2008 with some beautiful butterflies on it that were from a stamp set she has. I used them as a model for one I designed to cut and emboss using my Pazzles Inspiration and the Pen Tool that Sue Reynolds, aka/HotPaws designed that will hold many different sizes of pens. I cut two layers and used fun foam to "elevate" the wing tips. Thanks for looking and have a great weekend!!!
