take care flutterbys

Did some spending lately.  Including some Memory Box dies.  And The Craft's Meow stamps.  And I'm having such fun.

Absolutely love the colors at The Play Date Cafe.  That polka dot tie - OMG.

And since I received my new stamps (yep, sucked up and paid postage from the US - it wasn't so bad actually), decided to have a go at the sketch challenge at The Craft's Meow

Took liberties (again) but hey there's a line across the top and a bow and some buttons pearls and a sentiment...

Stamped the hexagon BG and the stitching across the top.  Die cut the flutterbys from CS and embossed them.  Opted for the iridescent pearls.  When I pulled out my pink ribbon scrap box these fabric scrap strips jumped out at me.  IRL the touch of green does wonders for the card, so I bunched them up into a bow.  Attached the flutterbys and stamped their tails (would recommend the reverse order ;) and voila.

This is off to my folks' neighbor who's not feeling well.  And she loves her flowers.  Bet she'll enjoy.

Have a colorful day.  And thanks so much for fluttering by.

Oh look at the awesome stamping going on here! Love it! Love the colors too, and how the orange hexagons compliment the big, bold and beautiful pink butterflies. Thanks for playing at The Craft's Meow.

Look at you, going all trendy with your hexagons! LOL They make a great backdrop for the butterflies, Maria. I'm sure your neighbor will adore it.

Thanks a bunch for joining us at The Play Date CAfe this week!
(I made a card for you, and will be going to the post office tomorrow to send it on its way! I wonder how long it'll take to get to Deutschland?)
