a card for wednesday

I finally got a chance to stamp just because for a minute this afternoon!! I have had so many projects to do that I haven't had much time to stamp just cuz for a while! I did the sketch challenge at Splitcoast. This was a different one for me...probably not one I would have ever done on my own but since the challenge was there...I took it! I think it turned out ok! I don't have the stamp set that coordinates with this gorgeous paper so I decided not to stamp and just use paper. I cut out a flower from the paper with my circle punch. I also cut out a leaf and a butterfly. I added 3 brads to the middle of the flower and then covered the flower with crystal effects. I used my new color spritzer too but it's hard to tell. I used it one the guava paper...it's a fun tool to use...I am gonna have to play more with this one! I was gonna be brave and try sewing on this card cuz I got the mini sewing machine that is all the rage this weekend...but then I wimped out cuz the card was turning out good and I didn't want to mess it up!!
Anyway...have a wonderful Wednesday...I am waiting for Mr. Brown to come!!
