Critter Party

I keep seeing all kinds of awesome cards with this Bloom & Grow DP, so I just had to pull mine out today. I also wanted to play with my new Critter Party clear set and this SUPER cool Butterfly Impressabilities template. I'm still figuring out all that can be done with it, but here I used it as a stencil and sponged around it.



The papers, stamps, and Impressabilities template can all be found at Stamper's Dream. All the product links are in the supply list below.

The cool layout is today's Twisted Thursday Challenge. I just recently found these challenges and I love them. It's a sketch challenge with a "twist" thrown in. Today's "twist" is to pair the sketch with ribbon. Well, heck, how easy is that!!

I colored my plain white pearls with a BG15 Copic marker.

Here's the inside of the card:


Here's a close-up of what's up on foam tape:

Soooo cute Denise! Love the paper choice again! That stamp is darling and the little butterfly a perfect addition. I had to take a close look at those pearls you colored with your copics.
