~The Play Date Cafe and Butterflies~

Sweet 'n Sassy's July Release Party has a ton of challenges to participate in.

The theme challenge is butterflies, hosted by Monika.

I just received my stamps from Sweet 'n Sassy...perfect timing!

I Versamark~stamped the butterflies and partially embossed them with black powder for a faded look.

The inspirational colors are from The Play Date Cafe #140 challenge.

The Heidi Swapp and BoBunny papers almost touch the colors.

I stamped the Sweet 'n Sassy sentiment in the Heidi Swapp Color Label and used Heidi Swapp's memory file stamp sentiments here and there.

I sewed around the butterfly panel to save my adhesive~ ;)

when I leave my sewing machine handy, I'm more likely to use it!

~Thanks for stopping in~
