Skipping Stones Design - Sketch 67

Happy Tuesday! Here comes my take on this week's Skipping Stones Design Sketch:



I used the gorgeous butterfly from the "Healing Wings" set and a sentiment from the "Always Here" set combined with some yummy Cosmo Cricket paper. The image and the sentiment are heat embossed with black embossing powder - I think that the sentiment looks crisper on a patterned background this way.

I hope you'll join us this week! Check out the amazing samples from the DT and Guests here!

Have a beautiful day and thanks for visiting!

Oh, and I didn't forget the winner from my give-away! I'll post her tomorrow!

Hugs,
Vanessa

Supplies:
Cardstock, die: PTI
Patterned Paper: Cosmo Cricket (Ca. 1934 Collection)
