Things Are Gonna Get Better!

or at least I hope so.....I have been having some trouble with migraines and a HUGE knot in my shoulder the past week.  It seems to be manageable for now with a steady diet of Tylenol and Advil, but I am hoping today I can get in to see a massage therapist....they can fix it!

I have still been able to make cards though!  Just a little slower!

I made this for the Viva La Verve March Week 2 sketch.  This sketch had me thinking...for a while.  I sat at my desk going through all my Verve sets, just waiting for something to come to me!  It finally did, and I am pretty happy with the results.

To start, I used one of my Key Ingredient Kits from Taylored Expressions.  This one is from Septemeber 2010.  The paper in the kit is Crate Paper Restoration.

My stamp set that I used is Blue Skies, one of the first sets I bought from Verve, and one of the ones that got me hooked!  I stamped the large butterfly once onto Choice Buttercream CS, and the small butterfly twice.  I coloured them with my copics, then gave them a coat of Smooch Illuminate for some shine.

Next, I stamped the sentiment with Memento Tuxedo Black, then cut it out using my rectangle nestabilities.  I did some distressing on the edges, added some sewing, and finally, two pink brads.

Thanks for stopping by!
