Wishing You A Beautiful Day / Whimsical Wed. #46

It is Wednesday and we have a new challenge for you over at Whimsical Designs, this week the challenge is Celebrate Spring. Very fitting, since yesterday was the first day of spring!

On a sad note, I have to announce that this will be the last Whimsical Wednesday challenge. Stephanie will keep her blog and will still be selling her stamps, but she is taking a break from running the challenges. We would like to thank everyone for their support of Whimsical Wednesday. We have enjoyed your participation and it has been fun each week to visit your blogs and see all your wonderful creations.

Here is my take on this weeks challenge:

I started with a kraft cardstock base. To that I added a border punched piece of turquoise cardstock and a pretty piece of patterned paper. The butterfly postage stamp is a sticker that I stamped the cancellation marks on. I fussy cut the butterfly from some paper and glued only the body to the patterned paper. I wrapped twine around the card and wove it through the buttons tying a knot in between each button. I finished it off with a stamp from Stephanie's Whimsical Fun Vol.1 which you can purchase here.

Supplies used: cardstock - kraft, turquoise; patterned paper - Damsel In Distress by Quick Quotes Paper; butterfly stamp sticker - element stickers in Curio by Basic Grey; postmark cancelation stamp - Travel Time Stamps by Inkadinkado; sentiment stamp - Whimsical Fun Vol.1; ink - Gathered Twigs Distress Ink by Tim Holtz for Ranger; border punch - Martha Stewart; butterfly emphemera, buttons, twine - my stash.

Wishing all of you a beautiful day!!!
