Nature's Sketchbook

Yes, this is a retired set, Nature's Sketchbook, but it is one of those sets that I will never let go. I especially love the butterflies in this set, but the strawberries come in a close second for my favorites. I used the Waxy Cuttlebug technique again, found in the current (April/May) Technique Junkies Newsletter. It is a FUN technique to do! On the background I used the Bamboo embossing folder and Pumpkin Pie Spectrum pad. The butterflies I colored with More Mustard and Close to Cocoa markers. Since the technique is striking on its own, I left the rest of the card simple...layering the focal point on Basic Black, then More Mustard and finally the Really Rust base card. A length of 5/8 wide Olive grosgrain ribbon finishes it off!

It was a beautiful weekend, can't believe it is over already. We had nice weather again today and tomorrow is expected to be nice, too. Tuesday mornings I get together with a couple of my stamping friends (hi Candy and Dina) to walk. Looking forward to chatting with them.

AND, tomorrow is registration day for Convention! Woohoo! I'm getting up early to jump online and get registered. Already have my airline reservations, so I'd better get in! lol!
