butterfly sparkle

It's Wednesday...I finally have a day to sorta relax! Since I had nothing pressing and we woke up at 7:00 {we are slowly easing our way into school mode} I decided to start the day off with some stamping! I wandered over to the 2 Sketches 4 You blog to see what the challenge was this week...another great sketch! Those girls are so creative!! {and a big Thank You to Angie for turning me on to on their blog!} I used my Garden Whimsy butterfly which has hardly seen ink since I got it! It's a shame I know! I also tried out some Dazzling Diamonds, my 1st time {gasp}! You should be fully awake before messing with embossing powders or glitter though...I dumped my whole jar of heat and stick powder all over the floor! {ugh...} I flipped through the new catalog to find a color combo and used the colors from the Sweet Always paper. I had a hard time making a nice corner with the scallops...so if anyone has any tips!!! {please share} After a 3rd try though I gave up and just stuck with this one! Oh well...
Have a fantastic day...chat at ya later!

That sparkley butterfly is really lovely :) So I cheat with my scallops in situations like this. I will use two separate pieces of paper - overlapping the one over the other so the scallop join fits perfectly :) Now you know my trade secret!
