Butterfly Gratitude

I'm back from the mountains and raring to get into gear......I had planned on doing some planning while in the mountains, but that didn't work out -  which I guess is good in the long run.  The weather was pretty good - but it sure is warm back at home.  Perfect for spending a wee bit of time in the basement stamping.

I created this butterfly card for the Friday Mash Up! this week and I used the sketch from Stamping 411.

The Mash Up! was:
  • Create a card with butterflies and bling  OR
  • Create a card using Perfect Plum, Marina Mist, one other colour and a neutral  OR
  • Create a card with butterflies, bling and the Color Combo.
I chose Wisteria Wonder as my extra colour and Very Vanilla as the neutral.  I actually like these colours together - I'll have to keep them in mind for the future.

I'm going to have to make sure that I get some school planning in during the next while - in addition to workshop planning....not much time left - but I'm NOT counting yet!

Hope you have some events to look forward to - and thanks for taking time to stop by to visit.
Joan

Joan, lovely to see you playing along with us again at the Friday Mashup. I love your colour combo that Wisteria Wonder just looks fabulous, your ribbon or seam binding almost looks green in the photo.

Cheers,
