Blue Skies Are Coming Your Way

Blue Skies Are Coming Your Way
Yay, I did it! Finished all five anni-VERVE-sary sketch challenges this week and am ready for the Release Party tonight!

The Blue Skies sentiment inspired me to look for blue papers and I happened to have just purchased the new Elegant Soirée DSP from Stampin’ Up! I combined quite a few of the patterns on this card. You may notice something unusual about the butterflies: they are covered in glitter! Actually, since I bought the quickie glue pen (such precision!) and found out how easy it is to clean up afterwards with a Swiffer cloth, I haven’t shied away from pouring on the sparkly stuff as much.

Thanks for stopping by!

    This is so beautiful. I love the different shades of blue and how the butterflies look as if they are in flight!

    I hope you are doing well, I haven’t seen you in a while!
