Celebrate Today and Everyday *SFYTT*

If February flew by as fast for you as it did for me, then you might not have gotten a chance to play along with this month's SFYTT! It's not too late...you still have the entire weekend to play along! Remember there are always prizes involved, so you may want to head over to her blog to find out all of the deets! Jen always does an amazing job and this month is no exception! I am in love with this sketch. Remember, this month's sketch is sponsored by Anita BeSTampin!


I decided to use the same paper as I did for my "Lucky" banner in my previous post. I added in some of the backside of one of the sheets to really change the entire look! The pop of burgundy really made a difference and made the card look really "homespun", which is the direction I decided to head in as I finished it off.


I started off by using PTI's Butterfly Dreams for the focal image and Autumn Abundance for the sentiment. I really liked the shape of the flowers in the background paper and I knew I had a punch with a similar shape, so I layered the flowers along the bottom. I normally wouldn't make black butterflies, but they were just what this card needed.


The circular piece the butterflies are on is a nestabilites die that I picked up the other day when I was "St. Patty's day" shopping. I just couldn't resist since I got $10 off! When it was all said and done, this card ended up having quite a "Debbie-Mummish" look to it, which I really like. She has been a favorite for years!

Remember, it is not too late to play along! Here is this month's sketch! Take some time
out for yourself and make a card for someone you love! Thanks for fluttering by!

Ever detail is jaw dropping. The placement of your different papers seems to be perfect. The red houndstooth just POPS in that location and the black butterflies with the inked edges and yellow centers is just amazing! It brings the entire project together!!
