Flight of the Butterfly

What a cute set of stamps this new SU Flight of the Butterfly is! There are several overlays for the butterfly and three "trails" of words to use. I used all SU products on this one today for the Sketch Challenge. This layout is so simple, yet it's a little "edgy" because the main panel is lined up against the right edge. I should have taken the picture more straight on rather than on an angle so you could see it better. This took only about 30 minutes for me to do (which is a record)! I think the most difficult thing was lining up the butterfly and words properly (with a SAMJ) so I had enough room to place the ribbon and the slide. The dp is Bella Rose and the red checked dp was stamped with the small butterfly in Riding Hood Red. I love stamping on dp. To me it's such an unexpected thing to do...why stamp on paper that already has a print on it? Because it's there, right? The polka dot paper is brown, but it looks black here. The main panel is on dimensionals because I love them (!) and the butterfly has stickles on it for sparkle because I love when cards sparkle! Well, that's it for today. Tomorrow is my first day back at school...no kids, just a district first day. Hopefully I'll be able to get into my room to unpack 25+ boxes and decorate my room before Wednesday! There was major construction done on our building and we had to COMPLETELY empty out our rooms. Now I have to put it all back plus get it ready for the kiddos! Wish me luck and thanks for stopping by!
