Beate Weekend Sketch #54

Beate is back with her Weekend Sketch Challenge! Yay! I have really missed doing these. I dug out an old favorite patterned paper. . .Cutie Pie. I just LOVED this paper when it came out and I haven't used it in a while. I also haven't used Garden Whimsy in a while. . .another old favorite! I stamped the butterfly in Purely Pomegranate on vellum. I cut it out, then ran it through the Xyron upside down and dunked it in glitter so the butterfly would be really sparkly. I can't wait to see what Beate, Cambria, Jenn, Laurie, Lori, MaryJo and Sharon have created with the sketch. . .I ALWAYS love their work! Thanks for stopping by today and have a wonderful weekend! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Garden Whimsy, Full of Life (SU); Paper- Cutie Pie DS, So Saffron, Basic Black, Wild Wasabi, Purely Pomegranate (SU), vellum; Ink- Whisper White Craft, Purely Pomegranate (SU); Accessories- Circle Scallop Nestabilities (Spellbinders), double stitched ribbon in Purely Pomegranate (SU), paper piercer, Dazzling Diamonds glitter, scallop border punch; Finished card measures 4.25" square.
