We visited my in-laws earlier this month and they send us home with a luggage full of amazing Puerto Rican cuisine, frozen and nicely packaged! So I wanted to make them a card thanking them for their thoughtfulness.
This is what I came up with:
ESS Sketch #93 created by Tracy Clemente from Eat, Sleep, Stamp blog. I've said it before, and I'll say it again, really like the simplicity of her sketches that act like a blank canvas for some FUN creativity.
I used this whimsical butterfly stamp from Inkandinkado Fancy That set that also included the sentiment. I thought it was perfect for this DCWV Blossoms and Butterflies pattern paper that had a lot going on, flowers and butterflies oh my!
I combined it with this plaid pattern paper that coordinates while tones down the busy pattern paper. Of course I had to keep going with the FUN butterfly theme by using this Martha Stewart butterfly edge punch and embossing some flowers onto the blue shimmer paper. I then finished off the whimsical look by adding some matching gems, oh yeah! :)
Coloring the image was just too much fun, really appreciate those copics! I cut out the image and laid it on the pattern paper and it blends in nicely; whimsical on whimsical :) ....
I'm hoping you guys are having a nice weekend and thanks for stopping by!
