BIC7 - Butterflies






Good Morning everyone!!! I'll be busy this morning and I didn't
know if I would have time to hop on the computer before I'll leave......that's why I'm so early
with my post!!!

I have to sign Miriam up for Preschool... and I have some running around to do.

I want to make sure that little stinker is having a school to go to....she is definitely ready to go 3x a week.
Right now she is only going Monday's. Yesterday her teacher brought her to the carpool and told me that she had cut her fine hair with kids craft scissors - YUP one side is definitely shorter - LOL!!!

The other thing she did was - almost pulled the FIRE ALARM.....oh boy...she would have created some serious trouble!!! We had a talk and we'll see what's gonna happen next week ....
Always something going on with those girls...LOL!!!

Anyhow - today is Beate's "Be inspired" challenge #7. The picture in the left hand corner features the two beautiful "Inspiration pieces" which are lantern's.
They are surrounded by beautiful butterflies.... that gave me the idea for this card.

Since they are made out of metal I thought I would incorporate the color combo my Blog Candy participants have chosen - which are Chocolate Chip, Bashful Blue and instead of Whisper White I had to use Very Vanilla to match the DP. But I hope you like it anyway??? I think it's a gorgeous combo as well - thank you ladies!!!

I started out with Chocolate Chip as my base and the card measures 5" x 5". Then I added a piece of 4 3/4" x 4 3/4" Bashful Blue and a piece of Very Vanilla. I covered the layover with the gorgeous Satin Chocolate Chip Ribbon.

The pretty piece of DP is from the "Au Chocolate" Series. On top I've used the rectangle Nestie's to create the main image.

The butterflies are from my newest Set called "Kind Thoughts" and they were stamped in Chocolate Chip Ink. Of course I had to stamp some extra to create the "paper tole's" or the 3-D image. The butterflies were adhere in the center. The scalloped panel was raised with Stampin Dimensional.
The sentiment is from the same set and I stamped it in Chocolate Chip. I also used the Piercing Tool below the sentiment. To dress it up a bit I added some beautiful small blue Rhinestone Brads from SU and placed them right before the sentiment.

Please make sure you check all the creations from the Inspiration Team. You can find the talented ladies on the left hand side of my blog. I hope we have inspired you and you will show us what you have done too.....~TFL~!!!
