Thanks For Being You

      It always pays to clean your workspace! The challenge @ Just Us Girls (JUGS72) is to use aqua, melon and kraft for your colors. For those of you that follow me, the background paper is a piece I had leftover from the sympathy cards I made last week. Perfect for the challenge. I love when that happens!     All the papers except for the kraft color are scraps. I even used the small pieces of melon and solid blue to cut some dimensional butterflies. I painted a few stickles on the wings and used Creative Charms gradient gems for the body of the butterfly. The white border is a punch from Fiskars and blends so well with the background paper from DCWV. I also added some faux stitching on the Spellbinders label. The stamp is also from my stash.

     I also like to finish off the inside of my cards and I had enough leftover pieces to do just that! Don't be afraid to leave a comment, I won't bite!
