Beate Weekend Sketch #46

Here is my card for Beate's latest Weekend Sketch Challenge. I was inspired by my sweet friend Joanne and her What You Got Challenge to use Bali Breeze Designer Paper and a Stampin' Up stamp set that hasn't seen ink in a while. When I first saw Garden Whimsy in the catalog, it was love at first sight. I HAD to have it. When I first got it, I used it on EVERYTHING. I just couldn't get enough. Then, new stamps came out and Garden Whimsy was put on the shelf and forgotten about. . .until now! I stamped the butterfly in Pumpkin Pie ink on the Bali Breeze Designer paper, then on vellum. I cut the vellum butterfly out and folded back the wings and mounted it on top of the first butterfly I stamped. I wanted to put some glitter on the wings, so I put a few dots of glue on different spots, but apparently the ink wasn't completely dry, so the glitter stuck to the WHOLE butterfly. I decided it was a fortunate accident because I LOVE the sparkly butterfly. Make sure you check out what Beate, Cambria, Jenn, Laurie, Lori, MaryJo and
Sharon have created for today. I'm sure they are all fabulous! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Garden Whimsy, Absolutely Fabulous (SU); Paper- Bali Breeze DS (SU); Ink- Onyx Black (Versafine), Pumpkin Pie (SU); Accessories- Sunflower Dew Drops (The Robin's Nest), paper piercer, Old Olive marker, Dazzling Diamonds glitter (SU)

I *so* felt the same way about that set! It was on my first order, and then was neglected. I have to play with it again - it's beautiful! Love your work, girl!
