Scrappy Saturday Challenge #40

Welcome to Wee Memories' Scrappy Saturday Challenge #40: Free Your Creativity!
Our sponsor for this week is iCopic with a marker prize package.  So fun!
Since we'd love to see whatever you're working on this week, I decided to reach into my scrap bin and see what came out.  Oooo!  And I found a few, yummy scraps to work with.  Check it out!
I started, this card, by piecing together the three, different patterned papers; machine stitching white-threaded, zig-zag stitches between them and white-threaded, straight stitches around their edges; and adhering them to the Baja Breeze, cardstock, card face.
I, then, wrapped a pretty, bright pink bow, around the card face, over the center, green, patterned paper and tied it, in a bow, just right of center.
The branch was stamped, in Old Olive ink, on a piece of Whisper White cardstock; hand cut out; and adhered, near the top left edge of the stitched piece, tucked under a kraft envelope, which was embellished with a length of hemp twine and a stamped, in Melon Mambo ink, on Whisper White cardstock, hand cut, and glittered butterfly.
A string of soft blue gemstones adorn the butterfly's body, and a stamped, in Melon Mambo ink, on the white cardstock tag, "SENDING YOU Love" sentiment...
complete the look.
My inspiration, for this card, came from 2 Sketches 4 You's Kazan's Fond Farewell Sketch.  Ladies, we will miss 2 Sketches 4 You, but I know this won't be the end of what we'll see of your amazing talent.  I look forward to discovering what your futures will hold, and be sure I'll be looking for you both ;).  Thank you for all the amazing inspiration you've given us and for challenging us to reach outside our comfort zones.  Hugs!
Sooo looking forward to seeing all of your fabulous creations, because I know they'll be fabulous!  You have until Friday, January 28, 2010, at 11:59 pm PST, to link up your entries.  Thanks so much for stopping by, and before you're off to having a great weekend, please be sure to check out what all the other designers have in store, for you, by going to the link above or clicking on their individual blogs in my left side column!  Thanks again, everyone!  Now, I'm off to celebrate my birthday today!  Yippeee!
