Beate Weekend Sketch #48

Beate's Weekend Sketch this week was tougher than usual for me. It took me a while to figure out what I was going to put where. I used two of the new Verve Visual sets that are releasing TODAY called Flowers & Stems and Fluttering By. If you haven't seen the new sets, check them out! I'm sure you'll LOVE them! For this card, I stamped two of the butterflies on vellum, cut them out and mounted them on the card front. I traced the inside of the wings with a glue pen and then added some Dazzling Diamonds glitter. The large butterfly also has some wire antenna. I don't know about you, but I can't wait to see what Beate, Cambria, Jenn, Laurie, Lori, MaryJo, and Sharon have come up with! Hope you have a wonderful weekend! I'm going to my upline's stamp camp tonight and looking forward to it! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Fluttering By, Flowers & Stems (Verve Visual); Paper- Ginger Blossom DS, River Rock (SU), vellum; Ink- Onyx Black (Versafine), Ruby Red (SU); Accessories- paper piercer, Basic Black marker, wire, prima flowers, brads (Making Memories), ric rac, Dazzling Diamonds glitter

LOL... get off my vibe baby! SNORT. That is SO funny. How can that happen twice? Maybe we are related? Maybe we have secret stamping powers/vibes? Beautiful card babe!
