Jen del Muro was kind enough to give us her SFYTT to play with for today’s Blog Hop.  As soon as I saw it I knew that I wanted to use the new "Blue Skies” set with some patterned papers from Cosmo Cricket’s Girl Friday paper pad.  I stamped the notebook paper image in Soft Sky Ink onto some PTI Cream Cardstock, then stamped a sentiment from the set in Old Olive Ink.  The butterfly was stamped in Black Ink onto the notebook paper image for positioning purpose, then stamped again onto a scrap piece of PTI White Cardstock.  I colored the second image with Copic Sketch Markers, then cut it out.  I used Dimensionals to attach the cut-out butterfly over the first one.  I added some sparkle to the wings by using some Crystal Stickles.  After adding some Ribbon, Rhinestones, Stitching, and a Button the card was complete.

Thanks for hopping by today! Next up on the hop is LAURIE, and I will see you back here again tomorrow with another MTSC Fave Five.  Until then…
