Hello Butterfly

Happy Thursday!

It's a gorgeous day here in Cape Breton- the sun is shining, there is no snow in the forecast and it's warm enough to make our poor snowman start to worry!

I wanted to share my attempt at the 2S4Y sketch.....

I am getting VERY addicted to these sketch challenges, lol.

I love this butterfly from Stitching Cards. For this card I scaled it down to fit my card design.

All of the patterned paper is from a My Mind's Eye stack that my sweet Taryn gave me for Easter last year. So cute, she even used her own money- doll.

I used one of the Spellbinder Labels One dies for the butterfly label and stitched it with some embroidery thread that I bought on ebay a while ago.

The ribbon is from Micheal's and the tag is stamped with a Hero Arts stamp. Oh, and I used the MS double scallop border punch too.

Hope your day is a great one!

Take care and thanks for looking,
