Thank You...WMSC38 44

Mona Pendleton | Saturday, March 12, 2011 @ 1:00 AM | , , ,

Happy Saturday! Do you have any plans for the weekend? Are you going anywhere or have you been on Spring Break vacation? My hubby and I have been vacationing over the past few days at "our home away from home" in sunny San Diego, CA. The weather has been pleasant. We had fun renting bicycles yesterday and touring around Coronado Island. Today, my hubby was in techy HEAVEN! We waited in line for nearly five hours for the release of the iPad 2 :)

Anyways, if you are hanging around home and have some free time, perhaps you may want to take on this week's awesome Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge?
I pulled out LF-114 Grand Circles and LF-249 Grand Big Scalloped Circles 
to create this card. I stamped a label from Very Vintage Labels 10 then stamped the "Thank You" sentiment from Rescue Remedies Additions in the center of the beautiful label.
The 3 butterflies were made using 2 different Spellbinders™die templates: S3-146 Butterflies Two and S4-123 Flying Beauties. I made the 2 little butterflies by stamping an image from Musical Backgrounds then cut using a butterfly die template from S4-123 Flying Beauties.
To make the pretty Teal colored butterfly, I cut/embossed a few butterfly shapes using a die template from S3-146 Butterflies Two. I took advantage of the unique stenciling ability of the Spellbinders™ butterfly die sponging on ink to reveal the gorgeous design:
Thanks for visiting! Please be sure to stop by the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge site for some amazing inspiration from the Mischief Makers and several other Waltzingmouse DT members :) I'll be back tomorrow with an all new CR84FN challenge. Be Sweet :)

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Waltzingmouse Very Vintage Labels 10Musical Backgrounds, Rescue Remedies Additions
Die Templates & Machine: Spellbinders™ Nestabilities®  S5-022 Labels Ten, S3-146 Butterflies Two, S4-123 Flying Beauties, LF-114 Grand Circles, LF-249 Grand Big Scalloped Circles, GC-001 Grand Calibur
