Sweet Friend

Happy Monday!! I hope you all had a relaxing and crafty weekend!! Spring and summer are my busy months and I travel quite a bit. I will be gone most of this week. I have my DT projects scheduled to post but I probably won't be able to visit your blogs until I get back. I'm going to try to keep up while I'm gone but sometimes it's hard, so if I don't get the chance to visit you, I will catch up soon :)


I have a card to enter into a few challenges today.The paper is from DCWV's Mariposa stack. The bottom two layers were cut with Spellbinders Matting Basics A and B dies.


A Spellbinders Labels Eight was used for the window. It was stamped with a JustRite Grand Sentiments stamp and colored in with a Tim Holtz Distress Marker in Tumbled Glass and a white Sakura Gelly Roll Pen. It was popped up with foam tape. The cut-out is a Spellbinders Labels Four die. The butterfly is a Spellinders Wonderful Wings die, stamped with a stamp from the same JustRite stamp set. It was highlighted with a white Sakura Gelly Roll Pen and adorned with gems. The ribbon is from May Arts.


Isn't the paper beautiful??!! Sweet Friend is from the same JustRite Grand Sentiments stamp set.


I am entering this in the following challenges:
  1. Craftin' Desert Divas Craft It Up & Link It Up - Color Challenge
  2. JustRite Challenge #95 - Window of Opportunity
  3. DL.Art Thankful Thursday- April Linky Party
  4. Sunday Funday #8 - April Linky Party
Thanks so much for stopping by today!! Have an awesome week :)
