Saturday Sketch Challenge 188

Good Evening Friends!

I'm so excited to be bringing you another card for stamping411 this week!

I had a most wonderful time stamping this one with the BLISS stamp set from SaleABration.

I used Bashful blue, Marina mist, and espresso for the colors (and shimmer white paper for the focal point). This one went together in minutes!

Measurements...
Base: 8 1/2 x 5 1/2" scored and folded in half at 4 1/4"
Layer 2: Marina mist, cut 5 1/2 x 3"
Layer 3: 2 3/4" x 2 1/2" Espresso Cardstock
Layer 4: 2 1/2" x 2 1/4" shimmer white

For the butterflies I used the rock and roll technique with the bashful blue and marina mist colors, and of course used JEWELS pearls on the butterfly body's. I just cut a strip of 3 pearls off the long self adhesive strand that comes with the set.

The ribbon is espresso colored 5/8" grosgrain ribbon.

I hope you have a wonderful night and if you have time, please check out what the girls over on 411 are up to!

Rubbah hugs,
Selene Kempton

I love those pearls on your butterflies and how you stamped the background on the cardstock instead of using a designer paper.
