Butterfly Birthday

Another stunning image that I got from Sweet Pea Stamps!  This is something outside my normal stamping arsenal, but I'm so glad I got it.  The images are gorgeous and really come alive with coloring.  So sultry and elegant at the same time.

Challenges:
Viva La Verve October week 2--sketch

Di's Digis--show off those coloring skills
Pattie's Creations #77--ribbon (the orange strip is some scrap ribbon I salvaged; just enough to span the card)
There She Goes #228--pumpkin, chocolate, aqua
{Pin}spirational Challenges #78--inspiration photo (I was inspired by the girly theme, the pearls, rhinestones and the blue in the background)

Our Daily Bread Designs #173  Fall leaves (I stamped leaves in the design on the white layer and used die cut leaves under the main image)
Sweet Stamps #138--Fall (fall colors and leaves)
Die Cutting Divas #136--used brown
Crafting By Designs --anything goes with ribbon or lace
CRAFT #228--Autumn/Halloween/Thanksgiving
DRS Designs #91--inspired by autumn
Crafty Ribbons #65--butterflies

Supplies:
Stamps: Sweet Pea Stamps "Serenity" digi; PTI "Guide Lines 2" patterned paper, "Places, Please" leaf in patterned paper and "Hands of Time" sentiment; Verve "Blue Skies" butterfly
Dies: Spellbinders classic ovals, large, Labels 4 and Floral Doily Motifs; PTI leaf die and border die; Verve butterfly die
