A Papillon Potpourri Borthday

I ran a cross the butterfly in my stash of "little stuff".  I thought I would work it into the card I had started but wasn't sure where I was going with.  I had the Whisper White and Bashful textured but I had no idea what I was going to do with it.  I had just used the lacy die cut and added that strip and then I was totally stuck.

I found the butterfly in my little stash and set it on the white.  I liked it but the lacy white edge looked funny.  So I walked away for a little while.  When I came back I thought I would work with the words.  The words were done on my computer and printed out on Whisper White card stock.  I used a piece of Pumpkin Pie for the circle behind the words.  And then it dawned on me that a strip of the Pumpkin Pie might be what that top piece needs.  It did need it but I still felt it needed something more or something different.  But it is what it is.  I have to walk away from it.  I drew a blank on this one!!  

So now I'm off to work on a new bracelet.  Well, it's not so new. I started it a month ago and have not had any time to work on it.  I think I need to write up the directions so I don't forget how to do it, just in case I don't get back to it for a year or more!!!  That has happened.  And what is so frustrating about that is, I forget how I made it and then it's all lost!  One day this week I will take a photo of the bracelet and post it here for you all to see.

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
Wanda
