Play Time Saturday . . .

Happy Saturday Everyone!
I know I should be doing cards for upcoming Fall shows but today I just
wanted to create something for fun and maybe use up a few tidbits that were
laying on my craft table ... so, that's exactly what I did.

What do you think?


It all started with this oval cut panel that was laying on the
table 'screaming to be used' ...
I had cut it for another project but was larger than I needed for that project.
The ovals I used are from Lawn Fawn ... Stitched Ovals ... LARGE and SMALL.

The Memory Box Calla Oval Wreath was cut from white card stock so I used
whatever ink was remaining in some of my smaller finger daubers to color it.


I sponged my background panel with TH Broken China
before adding my encouraging sentiment by Art Impressions.
 
As you can see by the glare,
I actually make this a 'window' card by repurposing a panel of 
acetate packing from one of my die sets (I keep them all for this purpose).
LOOKING BACK ... I guess I could have actually made this a shaker card ... hmmmm!

 The larger butterflies are cut from the
Memory Box 'Fairyland Butterflies' ... just the top two.
 Memory Box - Dies - Fairyland Butterflies
It's always nice when you can use your dies in different ways.

A few other 'tiny' butterflies joined the party ...
They are from the Martha Stewart '3 in 1 butterfly punch'.
