Make it Monday Challenge

Happy Friday dear friends!! I hope you all had a very happy 4th of July!!  Our week has been absolutely fabulous! My dad visited from California, we hiked a good 10 miles during the week, spent some time with good friends, and yesterday had a girls day out!! Whew!  It truly was a fabulous week! I haven't had much time to create over the past several days, but I am busy making new cards for Farmer's Market!  Business has been very good and each week I've had to replenish my stock!! I am so very thankful for all of you who have purchased my goodies at the Farmer's Market and in my Etsy Store!!!  Thank you from the bottom of my heart!!

Today I made a fun little birthday card using the Papertrey Ink  Make It Monday #73: Stamping on Patterned Paper and Retro Sketches #19.  

Here's my take on the challenges:
I used Pink Paislee's London Market 6x6 pad for this card.  I used the patterned paper with mostly text to die cut the butterflies and then I stamped each butterfly with sweet blush ink.  I inked each butterfly with Tim Holtz Tea Dye Distress Ink and adhered them to the card base and added a little pearl embellishment.  The pearls on the Lovely Layers Leaves were inspired from Melissa Phillips amazing card seen here.

Supplies Used:
Papertrey Ink Stamps and dies:  Love Lives Here, Filigree Border and Lovely Layers
Papertrey Ink Cardstock:  Rustic Cream
Patterned Paper:  Pink Paislee London Market 6x6 Pad
Ink: PTI Sweet Blush Ink; Tim Holtz Tea Dye Distress Ink by Ranger
PTI Simply Chartreuse Felt; Recollections pearls, Hand Dyed Seam Binding by MemrieMare
KG Strawberry Limeade Font; PTI Button and Twine

Note:  For those of you who are looking for new classes....I have been swamped with Farmer's Market and I am hoping to have some new classes up in the next week or two.  I am shooting for the second week of August.  Thanks for your patience!!

I appreciate you taking time to stop by!!!!!
Have a wonderful weekend!!
