TE Blast From the Past Blog Hop

It's time again for the Blast from the Past Blog Hop at Taylored Expressions!  I love seeing some of the sets I haven't used in a while appear and inspire me to get them out again!  For my card today, I used the Discover Your Wings set. 
I "stamped" my Creole Spice Kaleidacolor pad right onto the cardstock to create the background for the butterfly.  I then stamped the butterfly in Versamark ink and embossed it in black. 
I used a border punch for the bottom edge of the focal panel and tied some twill as well. 
I just love this sentiment.  I always have.  It's one of those sentiments that could be used for so many different occasions too. 

DON'T FORGET! We will be drawing one random hopper to receive a FREE Taylored Expressions stamp set of your choice and we'll also be choosing another creation to be featured in an upcoming TE newsletter.

Also, Taylored Expressions is offering a special Blast from the Past sale in order to help you prepare for our next customer blog hop!
