SmileyHey there, does everyone have their sunglasses handy?  You might want to grab them for this one!    OK, but I warned you.  *wink*

I felt the need to do a little sponging and this is what I came up with.  Love the butterflies...not so sure about the in-your-face, bright yellow.  I took it to work with me and set it on my desk to help me decide if I like it or not (I know, I'm weird!).  I decided that I like it, yellow and all.  It's a nice fall color, right?  (still trying to reassure myself...yikes!)

When my co-worker saw it she had to have it.  Her friend recently lost her 40ish year-old daughter to Breast Cancer and she wants to send her a card.  As someone who recently lost a parent, my heart goes out to the family.

The butterflies are from C.C. Designs and were stamped with Ranger Black Soot on Neenah Solar White.  They were colored with Copic markers (see below), cut out and set aside.
Next I used the leaves and grass stamps from Gina K's Hang in There set.  The leaves were stamped with VersaMark and embossed with clear embossing powder and the grass was inked with VersaMark and SU Barely Banana then embossed with clear embossing powder.  I sponged Barely Banana on the center of the panel.  SU So Saffron was sponged next on the outside working my way towards the center not covering all of the Barely Banana.  SU Summer Sun was sponged last around the outside working my way toward the inside not covering all of the So Saffron.  I used a paper towel to lightly wipe the ink from the embossed areas.

The sentiment is also C.C. Designs and was stamped with Ranger Soot Black in the corner leaving space for the brads which are Bazzill.  SU Dimensionals were used to pop up all of the butterflies.

Another of the butterflies in the set was stamped on the inside panel and colored with Copic markers.  Everything was layered (inside and out) to finish it off.

Thanks for stopping by!
