Green Butterfly???

Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek. -Barack Obama

What a Week!!!! Starting Tuedsay morning I have been riding a Big Huge Wave of Awesomeness! Tuesday was a wonderful day, I spent most of it with goosebumps and huge smile on my face. Then Wednesday came and it was LOST Premiere!!! My co-worker that makes most work days Super Stressful left for a 3 week leave of absence starting Thurs...WOO HOO, what a week. :)

I haven't had a lot of crafting time, but I hope to make up for that this weekend. I did get to make something last night for the Friday Bloggers Challenge. This week it was a color challenge...Red, Black, Kiwi Kiss and White (or Vanilla.) I got my new Memory Box stamps last night so I wanted to play with one of those...I picked this butterfly and cut him out and curled the wings alittle before layering over an uncolored image.


Here is a detail shot of the Sunflower Shimmerz I added to the Butterfly for some Shine!


Supplies:
Stamps:
Periwinkle, Thanks script (Memory Box)
Paper: Riding Hood Red, Kiwi Kiss, Basic Black, Whisper White (SU)
Ink: Tuxedo Black (Memento,) Copic Markers
Misc: Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon,
Dew Drops, Sunflower Shimmerz Glitter Paint, MS Crafts Simple Scallop Border Punch (sorry Edie, not trying to rub it in, you just reminded me that I had it.)

Thanks for stopping by!
