Butterfly Butterfly!

Wednesday, March 14, 2012

Hi everyone!

Hope your week has been good to you so far. I accidentally slept in yesterday morning, but I managed to get my little girl and myself dressed, fed and backpack filled in under 40mins! All without any tears too! It might have been a record for us, but one that I'm not willing to try and break any time soon! lol Apparently no one told my body that the clocks had been wound forward an hour! It doesn't help that the alarm is set for my husband to get up at 4:45am and by the time I have to get up, the snooze button no longer works. Might be time for another alarm clock, I think.

I have another All That Scraps card to share with you today!

Butterfly Lucy is a doll, isn't she?! She is one of the other Swiss Pixies released last week along with Bunny Lucy and Ima Butterfly.

To make this card I used some of my favorite papers from Basic Grey's retired Urban Prairie collection,a strip of polka dot paper from MME (that I've been hoarding for just the right card!) and the oval panel was another piece of MME scrap. I borrowed this week's Sketch Saturday's #198 sketch for my layout, which I turned on it's side, as well as Dutch Dare Card Challenge #155 recipe from this week to build my card with. I had to use one stamped image, one sentiment, 2 ribbons (twine is a ribbon, right?!), 3 patterned papers and 4 embellishments.

Here's a close up of some of the details on the card. I sponged each panel with Antique Linen and Tea Dye Distress Ink and sewed them to some matching cardstock. I love to use Bazzil Basics cardstock, because of the texture, but I don't like how you can't stamp on it very well, so to make the logo, I stamped the Spring Logo's image onto the back of the cardstock instead! Brilliant, right?! See, I'm not just a computer geek! ;)

If you'd like to see some fabulous cards from ATS design team, then head on over to the ATS blog where the girls have created a bunch of new cards with these new stamps!
