SWEET BUTTERFLY

Many of you have been so kind in asking how my new job is going! Just wanted to give you a quick update and let you know that I am feeling much more comfortable than I did those first couple of weeks. I am enjoying the students and fellow co-workers but do very much miss being home and staying on top of my household chores.

This card uses
Jen del Muro's Sketch For You To Try 09/13/08. Again, I used the stamp set Flight of the Butterfly but this time paired it with Sweet Always DP.

I used the Stamp-a-ma-jig to line up the words and two butterfly images on top of each other, and found the Stamp-a-ma-jig to be a necessity with this stamp set. The words were stamped in Chocolate Chip, and the butterfly in Pink Pirouette with the dots on the butterfly stamped in Regal Rose. Diamond Stickles (non-SU) were added to the dots on the butterfly. The Chocolate Chip 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon is threaded through a hole in the main image panels made with the Horizontal Slot Punch (one layer at a time!). The Flower Fusion and Flower Fusion Too, along with the coordinating Dew Drops (non-SU) were adhered using Tombo Adhesive.

RECIPE

Paper: Sweet Always DP, Pink Pirouette, Pumpkin Pie, and Whisper White DP

I love pink and orange together.. This is just the cutest card ever!!! I feel like a little girl with not a care in the world when I look at this card... I want to make one!!! I don't have that DPS thought... Dang!!! I will just have to look at the Stampin' Up Lip balm from convention with that DSP pattern...
