SFYTT & OCC... Priceless!





















Happy Sunday Everyone...
I hope you are having a great weekend! It's nice and sunny in Central Minnesota today... above freezing!! (That's a big PLUS!!)

Today's card is inspired by Jen at i{heart}2stamp, her weekly SFYTT Challenge and Our Creative Corner to pick your favorite embellishment (ribbon, hardware, charms, flowers, etc.) and create your whole card around it! I used the SU! colors Baja Breeze, Kiwi Kiss, Chocolate Chip and Kraft giving a fun TWIST to the SU! styleWATCH... Manhattan! I pulled out my Priceless set. And also used my new Retro Flower punch from Ek Success. To top it off my card is 5"x5"!! :) How fun is that!
I added "metal flowers", applied silver pearls to my butterfly, and paper pierced double rows for added filler around the edges. My saying is clear embossed and I used my CB embossing folder D'vine Swirls for more texture. Click on the close up photo to see more details!

I like how it turned out... and I hope you enjoy too! Thanks for the visit my stamping friends and have a super Sunday!! SMILES :)

Ann said...

Wow! Love this design!

Funny, I just saw a card in the SU catty with this color combo and added it to my "to-do" list. Yours turned out beautifully!

Wowzer, Michelle, this IS Priceless! I love your take on the sketch. The color combo is wonderful, and I LOVE the metal treatment... and the beads on the butterfly. Too cute!

Sounds like it's downright balmy in MN (hee hee). Seriously, I am glad you're getting some relief from the relentlessly cold weather you've been having. Me, I was just standing outside in my backyard enjoying the feel of the clean air after another rain. Heaven!

Lots of hugs, my friend. Keep on stampin!

Wowzers! Love this. This is a fave color combo for me. I like how you stamped the flowers then stamped again with the brown images. The combo of the CB swirls the embossed sentiment, the piercing and the popped up elements are really terrific.
