Happy Sunday all. Hope it is a good one for you. We finally got a little rain last night but I sure could have done without the light show that went with it. DH is off today so I will have limited time at the helm as he feels neglected when he takes a day off and I don't spend all of it with him. :( This is my normal day that my oldest dd would come over for some stampin' therapy. We have missed out on quite a few sessions lately with the new baby of my youngest and just normal interruptions. May 2 weeks from now we will be able to. Onto todays challenge. This is for today's FEATURED STAMPER - Lost in the 60's aka Denise. I enjoyed browsing Diane's gallery and finally decided on CASEing her NATURAL BEAUTY - JOY. I changed the colors to match this weeks COLOR CHALLENGE - krafty skies, I changed the layout to match this weeks SKETCH CHALLENGE. I also used a different corner punch and only punched the top corners. The bird and butterfly were stamped in Brilliance Graphite Black then colored with prismacolor pencils and blended w/gamsol then cut out. The butterfly center is glued and both wings have dimensionals under them to make them pop. The bird is busting out of the sentiment block and the punched through paper is popping him up. Stickles applied to the bird and butterfly. I also used a different ribbon and ran it across the 2 top panels to cover the overlap. I really do not like to leave joining lines open, I like to cover them up.
