Last night I was watching the "Dancing with the Stars" episode that I recorded Monday night. I just LOVE all of those dresses! The frills, the sparkles, the colors, the designs...they are so inspirational. Maybe I am way too obsessed with paper crafting. LOL! I saw this dress on The Bachelor's partner and immediately thought of PTI's new Hawaiian Shores.

I have wanted to try to make an easel card for some time now. It looked really cool to me but a bit complicated. Surprisingly it was a snap to put together. I wanted to get it entered into a challenge given by Sugar Nellies on SCS. So I threw this together while dh was cooking dinner and the kids were running amuck. I need to go round them up for bed now. Have a great night!
Stamps: Sugar Nellies Daisy, PTI Butterfly Dreams
Ink: Memento Black, Adirondack Lettuce, Martha Stewart blue chalk ink
Paper: SU Old Olive, PTI Sweet Blush, Imaginese & Chatterbox Patterned Paper
Misc: Sewing Machine, Nestabilities, EK Success Punch, MS Butterfly Punch, Prima flowers, PTI button, flat back pearls, Copics
I have wanted this stamp set since PTI released it in February. I just love how Niki designed it!! Butterflies are one of my all time favorite images. And they have a special place in my heart. Whenever I see one, I always think of my sister-in-law who passed away from Hodgkins Disease 15 years ago. It's like a sign that she is near me. It's funny, I just now realized that rainbows used to be the sign (long story) and here I made this card in rainbow colors. It was definitely not intentional! But I am loving the coincidence!!
Anyway this card was made for the PTI swap that I am in over at SCS. Angela gave us sketches to choose from and boy was this one a tough one for me. (Sorry, I can't find the sketch right now.) But once I got it together, everything fell into place. I love how that happens.
