WMSC110 - Stitched Butterfly

YEAHHH!!! It's Saturday!  Time to relax, grab a cup of coffee, check out the winners and the new sketch at Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge!  This week's design is brought to you by the lovely  Laurie Schmidlin!    Laurie's designs always have great color, style and a sense of whimsy.    I thought I might try to channel Laurie and come up with a bit of whimsy of my own with this fun design! 
Remember the sketches are for fun!  They are a guideline subject to interpretation.   When I saw this one - my first thought was making the little circles into flowers.  Then  I turned that rectangle into a layered butterfly with a gem brad ready to take flight!   I thought that twill ruler ribbon would look great with that stitched butterfly and all the other little details came together after that. 
You know I can't resist bling, so I threw in some swirls of gems too!  This one was lots of fun to make.   I hope that you have time to play along this week at WMSC - it's a great place to make new friends and you might just win a prize while you're at it!

So pretty Jeanne, love that stitched butterfly and my very favorite part of the card is that ruler ribbon...that looks so great with this design. I think those circles look like flowers too!

Your layered butterflies and rolled flowers are fantastic, Jeanne! But my favorite detail is the measuring tape ribbon. Sweet!
