School is back in session and everyone is settling into the new schedule. Drop off, pick up, clubs, homework ... it feels good to have everything "click". My children are soooo happy and naturally that makes me happy too. I find comfort in "schedules and plans"...some of you may find that crazy thinking "where's the fun in that?". But to me life is good when I have purpose and structure...I guess that's just me.
Pool Party is such a lovely shade of blue. It goes perfectly with my new favorite papers from the Domestic Goddess collection. I've added a few of these gorgeous prints to my new Bingo Card background stamp. Now I can create this vintage game look in any color - just add ink!
Some cardboard cut with pinking shears and brushed lightly with paint came next. Three butterflies all cut from the same paper collection are layered with a sweet little button on top. I used both the Butterfly Punch and Beautiful Wings.
The ribbon is dyed seam binding and I've added a decorative pin. The tag is created with the Jewelry Tag Punch and again the little words in Pennant Parade came in handy.
Be sure to visit the ladies at The City Crafter. Their challenge this week was to use 1 ribbon, 2 or more words, and 3 or more butterflies. Every week there's something inspiring from Kirsty and the Design Team ... they never cease to amaze me with the challenge ideas they dream up and the projects they post. Thanks ladies for sharing your creative talents!
And thank you too - for stopping by ...
