It's my turn in the Simply Sassy Spotlight...

Good Morning peoples!!
Blimey its all go on here at the moment eh?
Hope you are not getting fed up with me yet??

Well, today I have some SUPER exciting news... the Simply Sassy Spotlight is shining on little ole me!!
So pop over to see the cards Maria has picked out to show you (arrggghhhh embarrasing!)

As part of the spotlight procedure (sounds a bit medical!)
I had to create a new Sassy card... and HERE it is my friends....


The butterfly came first on this one... I was messing about stamping onto acetate... and I stamped the spotty butterfly from the greeting farm spotlight kit onto it...
(are you sick of seeing me use this kit?... truthfully I don't have a huge amount of stash, so I do tend to use the same stuff over and over, AND theres SO much in it, and I love it...so there!)
The butterfly body is just a pin, with paper wrapped around it, and 2 bits of wire...simples!!

After I made it, I realised how well it would go with the blue spotty paper from the Prima - Moulin Rouge set... so I ran with that....


The GORGEOUS stamp is Butterfly Girl by Simply Sassy... I LOVE her... just look at the expression on her face!! SO adorable!
I coloured her to match the floral paper....
I created the spotty tabs at the bottom, using one of the border strip stamps from the....sigh.....greeting farm spotlight set.... I just stamped it a few times, and then cut tabs from it...
The sentiment stamp is cats life press which you can get from Crafty Emmas Store
I created the cloud background using chalks.... more about this later in the week ;)

doodling (of course) and enamel (of course) and I'm done!

I followed Maria's Sketch over at the Sugar Bowl.... AGAIN!! (and rotated it... again!)

And I'd also like to enter the following challenges...

Crafty Pad - Cute and girly
CES - Mix and match papers
Card Making Mama's - Birthday cards

Thanks for visiting!!
and thanks Maria, for spotlighting me!!
