A Note of Thanks SFYTT

I hope you all are having a wonderful Saturday! I can't believe how fast the weeks fly by! I was in the mood to use up some more of my DSP, so I decided to use this "Raspberry Tart" variety. I fell in love with it and pre-ordered two packages when it was first available. I don't think I have even opened the second package. I think I may be planning a Stamp-a-stack soon to get some of this paper used up! LOL!
I knew I wanted to use this butterfly set, so I just took the colors from the paper. The paper does all the work with minimal stamping. I did add a little sparkle to the butterflies using crystal effects and a sprinkle of Chunky Essentials glitter. I finished it off with a taffeta bow and called it good. The pattern paper is so busy that I decided to keep the embellishments minimal.




I love it when the butterflies are bent so they look like they are in flight. I just bend them in half and then apply them with crystal effects. That way they have a nice, strong hold and I don't worry about them coming off. Of course they would get squished if you put it in an envelope, but could easily be bent up again.
I will be sharing some fun Papertrey things tomorrow night, so stay tuned.

You won't want to miss the other SFYTT designers.
