~ColourQ and Sketch Merci~

I've never taken French.

It seems like a gorgeous language~filled with elegance and mystique.

The Waltzingmouse Stamp set Paris Nouveau exudes that sophistication.

I used the border to decorate this Spellbinders postage stamp die cut cardbase.

using the colors from

These butterflies were fussy cut from BoBunny's Country Garden pack..there are a few of those beauties floating around in it.

In the graveyard basket that holds all miscellaneous tools and such...I went hunting for my mini stapler to attach the twine bow to the smaller butterfly.

It saves me having to find a glue dot small enough to adhere the twine to, and keeps me from
 having problems with it sticking to other cards in my stash.

I'm keeping that lil' guy (18 years old) close by-he's upgraded to usefulness in my tools. 

 I believe I even have extra staples to go with it.

This is why I rarely get rid of anything!

Thanks for stopping in~

take care now!
