This layout was done following a sketch. The only papers I for sure know of the brand on are the purple, yellow & white, which are Recollections brand.. the butterfly paper I won and I have no clue what brand it is.
I embossed the purple strip of card stock with divine swirls embossing folder and the cuttlebug, then I inked it with pink ink. I also inked the butterfly paper with purple chalk in and the boarder of the white background card stock. I added a butterfly cut from the Best of 2008 cart with my Cricut Expression 2 & Gypsy. I glimmer misted the butterfly with a purple color I think it may have been Wine?? Not positive.
I added a swirly orchid bakers twine line across the bottom leading to the butterfly. I put a yellow mat down and then my pic on top of that and the little banner is the purple background with yellow on top and cut by hand. I hand wrote the date (April 8, 2012 .. which was Easter last year) with a purple glaze pen and then I added some white gel pen stitching around the date.
I am entering this layout into the following challenges:
Thanks for stoppin' by and have a great day!
