Freshly Made Sketches: A Butterfly Hello

It's time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches! Today we have a sketch by Narelle.


I was feeling like spring colors and butterflies today.  I don't know why - I actually love winter and unlike so many other areas this year, we've had an easy one (and I live in Colorado - go figure!)  Although now that I'm writing this post and realizing the date - I should have gone with hearts!  Happy Valentine's Day!

FMS Butterfly Hello

I started with a big butterfly and then as I continued looking through my index of dies, I saw this round one.  The round die actually has a butterfly on it, but I wanted dimension so I trimmed out that butterfly and added a layered butterfly.  The dies and stamps are from Taylored Expressions.

I liked this idea enough that I actually broke out some of the papers that I've hoarded for just the right time.  It's a 6x6 pad called Park Bench by Fancy Pants and I don't see that it exists anywhere anymore.  The brownish gray tones in it pair well with Stampin' Up's Sahara Sand paper and ink.

Be sure to check out the rest of the design team at the Freshly Made Sketches.  There are definitely hearts for today but also snowflakes to tropical scenes!!  Then I hope to see you play along!
