Stamp Winner and Some Butterflies

This month's Crate Creative Weekly focused on butterflies. I love butterflies, but was stumped as to what I wanted to do. I decided to go with a bold look. Maggie Holmes' watercolor paper and the one with clouds on it were perfect to do so.

This is a picture of Fran and Ryan at our favorite hiking spot. I wanted the theme of the page to be 'outdoorsy' and   focus on that 'free' feeling they get when they are out in the park.
 I used a tag and chipboard frame to layer under my picture. I added a gem clip and cut a portion of a canvas frame to add to the bottom.

Another piece of canvas frame was used as my title. I didn't want anything too bit to take away from teh butterflies. I also used my typewriter for the first time on this page.

The butterflies were cut with my Silhouette. Then I cut vellum slightly smaller. I stitched them together and added some gems. I love the soft look the vellum gives them. 

Finally, congrats to SuZeQ who won my stamp giveaway. Thanks to those of you who stopped by and left a comment.

Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by.
