Blue Butterfly (WSC76)

I'm Sorry I didn't post yesterday, but I was busy doing other things with my son getting ready for Easter. He's 14, but we still colored eggs and he got an Easter basket this morning with a soccer ball, football, and basket ball, along with candy, of course! Anyway, this card is for this week's Weekend Sketch Challenge which was hosted by Laurie Schmidlin. If you want to see the original layout for the sketch, go to her blog, "Just Give Me Stamps." I used Naturals White for the base card, and the designer paper is "Delicate Dots" which was this year's Sale-A-Bration freebie. I had the piece of Whisper White which was already embossed with the Backgrounds #1 Texturz Plate. I just cut it down to the right size for the sketch. Instead of another piece of paper, I used the Bashful Blue Wide Double Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon. I matted a scrap of Naturals White on Bashful Blue and then stamped the sentiment with Not Quite Navy. The circles were cut out with Nestabilities. The leaves were made with the "Sweetest Stem" Embosslit (I love those things!). The flowers were punched with the Flower Trio Punch and embossed (I do that a lot!). The butterfly is a Scrapbook Sticker from Dollar Tree. They come seven in a package and are different sizes; this one is one of the smaller ones. Everything is from Stampin' Up! except for the butterfly sticker and the Nesties I used. Thanks for stopping by!!!
