Color Me Scrappy - Challenge #11

Well it is officially September.  I'm so excited, the kids are going back to school!!  It's the most wonderful time of the year!  (I miss that Staples commercial).

And it's Challenge #11 over at Color Me Scrappy.  The colors were definately not something that I'm used to so of course it was a challenge.  Very beautiful and classic though when I look at them.

I started off by stamping some of the butterflies when I was stamping with the kids.  It was perfect because I could choose the colors I wanted from the markers and make them match the color palette.

I then stamped the lace background in Navy blue ink and added some glimmer mist to the whole page.  I love using glimmer mist but I don't like how it wrinkles your page when you are drying it with your heat gun.  And I'm too impatient to watch it dry!!
I added some lace, trim, bloomers flowers and some polyester flowers.  To finish it off I used an adage ticket from Tim Holtz and a resin flower that I was hoarding.  I do love how it turned out, kinda hard to take a picture though when the glimmer mist is shining through the flash

Make sure you head on over and check out the other design team layouts.  And get your layout added to have a chance to win a great prize!

Happy Papercrafting! Sarah
