Freshly Made Sketch 36

Hi all!  I made this card for Freshly Made Sketch #36 using my brand new Summer Fresh papers by Simple Stories that I just bought from i {heart} papers. They arrived in the mail yesterday....and oh my word, love 'em!


The large zig-zag pattern is printed that way in the paper pad so all I did was cut it out (I didn't piece all those rectangles together). Six butterflies were die cut with Verve's Flutterby die and stacked in pairs with foam tape so there's lots of dimension. The "Hello" sentiment is from my MFT Essential Sentiments set. The flag die is from Lil' Inker Designs and twine is from The Twinery.



Thanks for stopping by and have an awesome day!
