True Friend...

Is it just me or is this card a little bright???LOL!! Don't get me wrong, I LOVE it, I really do, I am just always SHOCKED by the BRIGHTNESS of Pacific Point. I will be honest, I really tried to add another color to this..Pumpkin Pie to be specific, but it was fighting with me, so I gave up. The combo is gorgeous, I just couldn't get it to work with this stamp set. I am still pretty excited about all my new SU goodies, so when I saw today's Inspiration challenge, I knew I wanted to use this set. I love the butterfly in it, and I thought it would work perfect for this challenge. I chose one of the samples that she gave us to look at from the Flutter website, but I went a tiny bit brighter. I stamped the butterfly from Simple Friendship with Rose Red ink and cut it out. I then cut it out and added it to my sentiment panel. Sadly, this panel was cut out with my Oval Nesties, so it makes it NOT an SUO card..but it is close!! I then layered it with my two colors, added some piercing, and a spiral clip with ribbon on it. For this card, I followed Taylor's Cupcake Sketch from today. The DP is from the Raspberry Tart and Good Morning Sunshine DSP. All the accessories, with the exception of the spiral clip, are from SU. Well, that is it for me now...gotta get to bed!! Thanks for stopping by!!

  17. Jessie ... no cause for alarm .. It is another gorgeous jessie creation! But I will confess along with you ... Pacific Point is a lot "bolder" for me when I play with it than my mind's eye is ever prepared to accept. I guess that could be the reason my package is still 95% intact! Oooops! hahhaa
