give it up for love fest 2013 (SCS, SSS, Paper Playtime)

Eleven challenges and this is my number 10.  Love Fest 2013J is sponsored by Verve Stamps and they want to see their colors (aqua and brown) with either yellow or pink.  Not my go-to colors, but I gave it a try...

Inspired by their banner I was... Faux letterpressed the flourish using Broken China Distress ink on aqua CS.  Stitched around the edges with yellow.  Mis-used my Tim Holtz Bird on a Branch (again) to get a gnarly branch for my butterfly (see it in the banner?).  She was die cut, stamped, painted with pearlescent watercolors and inked around the edges before being mounted on the card over some saved-from-the-bin threads.  I misted a CS scrap before stamping the sentiment in brown.

Also hooking up to:
Paper Playtime #4 - Use a Sentiment Stamp (the sentiment on my card plays a huge role)
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes

Yellow and blue just go together, don't they?! And you've got your mojo working overtime! Love the butterfly (and am dumbfounded at all the work that went into her), and the little threads behind her. Wonderful. Bev
