Believe In The Beauty Of Your Dreams

Hey everyone...sorry I haven't posted in a few days..it has been crazy busy around my house. My hubby's birthday is July 3rd so every year  I do his birthday party the first Saturday after the 4th. So with working, celebrating the 4th Of July and preparing & having his party this past Saturday, I haven't had much time to blog or craft...BUT I will be making up for that this week : )  I'll share some pics from his Hawaiin Luau party later this week. It was a total blast and we had a great day celebrating my hubby's birthday with family and friends!!

Today I wanted to share a LO I created using more of the fab DCWV paper stacks.

I used the Tradewinds Stack for this LO. I absolutely love this stack!! The papers are just beautiful & you get 24 sheets that have foil accents on them. You can see some of that detail on the butterlfly I fussy cut.
I misted the CS with some Mama Sings The Blues Glimmer Mist. Here you can see more of the foil detail...I wrapped some packaging string & added a small brass key.

I fussy cut a large flower from one of the 12x12 papers...I'll show you a closer pic in a minute. I found this awesome large brown/brass button in the clearance bin at Joann's awhile back. It fit perfectly in this LO. The twigs you see are from a package of moss from another project.

Here you can see the flower a little better & catch some of the detail from the fussy cutting I did. I cut into the middle of the flower as well so it would have more depth and pop up from the page much like a real flower would do. Wanna know where the white flower came from?? Well my daughter & I had matching white flip flops from my outdoor wedding 3 summers ago...I re-purposed the white flower from those flip flops : )
I had some really cool burlap/cotton type fabric I picked up in the remnant bin. I cut a strip (which I also used as a mat underneath the CS) inked the edges a bit...frayed the edges & tied it around the CS.
I topped it off with a vintage wooden button clipped to the fabric with a garment pin from Making Memories.
I love this fussy cut butterfly. The foiling is just gorgeous!! I stamped my sentiment on a scrap piece of the fabric...folded it up...used a Tim Holtz Memo Pin to hold the butterfly & voila!!

I'm really pleased with how this LO turned out. I have it displayed in my room & I love it!!

Thanks for stopping by...don't forget about the First 100 Followers Giveaway I'm having. You can read all about it HERE.

Happy Scrappin!!
