Sweet Sunday Butterfly

Hello again!  SO sorry this is late - and I'm not even completely sure I like it all that much.  It was kind of one of those "Gotta use some new stuff and stick it all over the card" sort of moments.  I think I need ribbon on it. Yep, that is it - it's missing ribbon!  I just ordered this fun butterfly embosslits and most of the new designer buttons from Stampin' Up! and I didn't even realize that SU had upped the number of buttons in the package - awesome!  The stamp is from a PTI set, Blooming Button Bits and I stamped it in Olive Pastel ColorBox fluid chalk ink.  Love this stuff!  It covers like craft ink, but dries instantly.  I added some linen thread for the butterfly antennae and the bow at the bottom of the leafy flower.

You can see all the entries for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch in the post below, or simply click here.

See  you back soon!

stamps: blooming button bits (papertrey ink)
paper: kraft, melon mambo, vanilla cardstock, fly a kite (october afternoon)
ink: olive pastel colorbox fluid chalk, memento rich cocoa
