Happy Wednesday!! I can't believe how fast this week is going. We have been so busy at work I needed a little stress release, so I decided I needed a little crafting.
My friend Barb posted up her latest card creation (see the post below) and it
inspired me to do something fun and Springy.
Barb is my co-worker and my best friend for the last 23 years, and she is the person
who got me into scrapbooking.
I guess I definitely owe her big time for that!
I got my layout idea from The Sweet Stop sketch blog.
This is a great website for really neat sketches.
I used My Minds Eye Paper (Lost & Found Blush) paper.
I punched my largest circle with a scalloped punch and then used 2 smaller punches for the other cutouts. Next I took some beautiful black glitter ribbon and put it under some really nice lace.
Then I made a bow out of the black ribbon and attached it to the top of the lace.
I added some fabric roses, some cute punched butterflies, and a few rhinestones.
I always think of Spring with butterflies and flowers.
And with this warmer weather I am definitely in the mood!
I used Copic Markers to color my Stamping Bella stamp.
And of course I added some green and white glitter to it.
I found this great tutorial for easy bow making over at the DCWV blogspot and
Northridge Publishing Create websites.
I highly recommend you checking out these two websites.
They are both full of some great ideas and inspiration.
Erin over at DCWV BlogSpot has some fun tutorials too.
