Try Stampin’ on Tuesday Sketch #77

 DSCF5805

I haven’t done a Try Stampin on Tuesday challenge for a while, and I liked this sketch, even though I turned it on its side:

I had some pretty MME papers on my desk from another project, so I kept right on using them!

I used some already-shabbied-up ribbon and I realize that the darker blue looks a little odd here….don’t know why the ink did that!  But it sort of matches!  I know the recipient will like it anyway!  I added a pretty butterfly accent along with some lace from my stash:

Both the frame and the butterfly are stamped with SU’s Four Frames; the sentiment is from PTI.  Feel free to shoot me an email if you have any questions!

Anyone ever play with clothespins when they were a kid?  Dropping them into a soda bottle or a jar?

Of course, it was only a matter of minutes before the floor looked like this:

She was very good about picking them up, though!!!  Training her early!

Great card! Love the colors and the crinkle ribbon. I probably wouldn't have noticed the darker blue if you hadn't called it out.

Love that sweet paper pattern and colors, LeAnne! And also the way you did the sentiment panel. I have that Four Frames stamp set and rarely pull it out...now I'm missing it! :)

I played with clothespins and an orange juice (glass) bottle when I was a kid. I thought it was SO fun!

That was always the party game. Drop the close pin i the bottle. That came before we heard about spinning and tipping the bottle. LOL
Your card is so pretty. i saw another card today with that adorable paper. Very very pretty!

Absolutely drop dead gorgeous LeAnne, I am thinking that paper is from Lime Twist. Every detail of this card is amazing!

Sharon said...

LeAnne, this card is gorgeous! I love how you used the pattern papers and the sentiment is simply perfect!
I love the hand dyed seam binding too. I think the variance in color helps give it that unique, funky look.
Just wonderful! TFS

Adorable card, so bright and cheery. I noticed the heart punched from the butterfly, very clever.
I loved playing with clothespin, and still do. And, you still have a clothespin bag! Bet those are hard to find these days.
