A Vintage Butterfly...WMSC24 44

Mona Pendleton | Saturday, November 20, 2010 @ 1:00 AM | ,

Hi there! Here today for another Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge.
I made this Thank You card for my sweet sister Tina who took the best care of my 4 legged fur babies when I was hanging out in Southern California last week with Scott (my hubby:) Week after week, Claire provides the most awesome sketches to play with.
I combined the Thank You image from Rescue Remedies Additions and the decorative image from Very Vintage Labels No. 4. After stamping both, layered on a multi-layered label created using S4-190 Labels Four and 5-019 Labels Eight die templates.
Scott (hubby) and I were hanging out in Southern California last week. Here is a pic of Scott:
These are the gorgeous cliffs on the beachfront in Salano Beach, CA:
Here is what we drove to the beach for:
That's all I have for today. Please visit the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge site for complete details :) Have a great weekend! Be Sweet :)


Supplies Used:
Stamps: Waltzingmouse Rescue Remedies Additions, Very Vintage Labels No. 4
Die Templates and Machine: Spellbinders™ Nestabilities® S4-190 Labels Four, S5-019 Labels Eight, S4-242 Big Scalloped Borderabilites®, S3-146 Butterflies Two,  GC-001 Grand Calibur
