Wonderful Day!

Happy Saturday, everyone! There is another fun Inspiration Challenge at Splitcoast today....choose an item from Galleria Arts & Crafts. As soon as I saw these cool metal butterflies (photo on the left), I headed to my room to work with some dies by Cheery Lynn Designs and some mirror paper I picked up last year in the ODBD show booth. Once I cut out my silver "Exotic Butterfly", I remembered that this week's challenge over at Cheery Lynn Designs is to "Frame It"! So, I chose the Japanese Lace & Flourish Frame with Island Indigo cardstock and Prima "Alla Prima" designer paper. The sentiment is a "sneak peek" of a new March stamp set, "Flourished Verses", by Our Daily Bread designs.
I have also used the Speedy Fox and Friends challenge to use lace on your project.

Card 'Ingredients':
Stamps: Our Daily Bread designs 'Flourished Verses' (will be released on March 1st);
Cardstock: Stampin Up Island Indigo and Whisper White;
Designer Paper: Prima 'Alla Prima' and silver mirror paper (from the Our Daily Bread designs show booth);
Ink: SU Island Indigo and Pool Party;
Accessories: Cheery Lynn Designs 'Japanese Lace and Flourish Frame' and 'Exotic Butterfly Medium', Spellbinders Ribbon Tags Trio Three, Basic Grey Teal Pearls, crocheted lace (brand unknown), foam tape, paper piercer and template;
Size: 6 x 4-1/2.

Thanks for visiting! Have a blessed weekend!!!
