Afternoon Tea Thanks

I finally got a chance to do a little stamping for fun this afternoon! I decided to try the sketch challenge from Stamp Something for this week. I think this is a beautiful sketch, and it was really fun to work with. I made a thank you card for DH's cousin (at whose resort we'll be staying when we go to Jamaica this summer!).

I pulled out my trusty Afternoon Tea designer series paper (LOVE this paper!), and the other colours came from there (Chocolate Chip, Groovy Guava, Wild Wasabi). My Chocolate Chip silk ribbon went perfectly with it as well. I had the main layout all finished, and then I couldn't decide what to put on the main image piece. I had stamped a piece with some flowers all over it, but it clashed with the designer paper, so I put it in the "try again later" pile and came up with this butterfly piece. I stamped the butterfly from Priceless in Guava and cut it out. Then I stamped it again in Chocolate Chip and adhered the Guava one over top (I've seen a lot of people doing this with their butterflies, so I thought I'd finally give it a try. I love the 3-D look!). I also added some Dazzling Diamonds glitter to the wings (don't know if you can tell from the photo). Then I added some Wasabi flourishes and the greeting from Sincere Salutations.

Thanks for visiting! I haven't had time for blurfing yet this week, but I'll be at it this weekend, so if I haven't stopped by your blog for awhile, I'll be there soon!

Blessings to you,
