Thanks So Much!

Good morning friends! Good news, my baby is doing better! It is so hard to have a sick little one, but when she just wants to sit and be held...not much better than that anywhere! Thank you for all of your well wishes. Here's to the end of that!

I wanted to take part of a few fun challenges today. I'm using Jen's SFYTT, from this past Saturday. I've loved Jen's sketches for a long time, but been slow on sharing my takes on them!:) I loved this sketch...and the inspriation from the Embellish Magazine's current challenge...delicous spring colors!
So, for my card, I used the new Butterfly Dreams stamp set from PTI. I LOVE, love, love it. I used Lemon Tart, Melon Berry, Spring Moss and Summer Sunrise for my color palette. Ashley has a fantastic eye for inspiration!!

I used my new butterfly die that coordinates with the butterfly dreams stamp set. I cut several butterflies out, some white and some of the colors listed above. I stamped a butterfly and then layered it onto a colored butterfly and then added some rhinestones. My card is a lemon tart base. The Melon Berry layer has been embossed with my swiss dots embossing folder.

I added a Summer Sunrise border and a splash of ribbon..then added my white circle to the card-and added my butterflies. My sentiment was stamped with Summer Sunrise ink onto Lemon Tart paper. The sentiment is from the Mega Mixed Messages stamp set.

I hope that you have a geat day! Thanks so much for stopping by, make it a great one!
