Brayered Butterfly Background

Good Monday morning to you.

School starts this week for us, officially signaling the end of summer. The girls are already talking about Halloween costumes--yikes! I had better dust the cobwebs off of my sewing machine and get started on them.

I made this card yesterday using the Card Positioning Systems sketch challenge CPS130 and the stamp set Garden Beauty from Clear Artistic Stamps. I did a brayered background using a circle mask, and then stamped the image positioning the butterfly in the circle.

I discovered an new palette that I really like: elegant eggplant, almost amethyst, barely banana and blush blossom. I'll have to remember this one!

Thanks for looking! I'm off to check on the tap and ballet shoes that we have in the closet. Hopefully they still fit--dance classes start tonight!
