Green Butterfly


Good afternoon! Remind me what all that blather was about yesterday...something about keeping it simple. Have I told you I have spring fever and am not really myself. Well, this certainly was not simple. But I LOVE it! I think this is super sweet. I used the ribbon (purchased from Michael's) as the color inspiration and today's sketch at SCS for the layout. I also tried that very cool technique from last week, inking the cuttlebug folder, hello! What a cool look that gives to a project. This really just involved some stamping and cutting and piercing. Let me know if you have any specific questions....I am off to see Elton John and his Red Piano. Catch you all tomorrow!
*edit* The butterfly was from a set that I got at the $1 spot at Target.

Thanks for stamping by!

Elton John huh? Funny, we were just talking about that show because someone else wants to see it too. How was it?
