Something a little Shabby

Good morning everyone...it's almost 1:00 AM and I'm wide awake!! Hope you had a wonderful New Years Day!!! Did you watch a little football and the Rose Parade?? I spent more time watching Oprah's new network...she is going to have some wonderful shows!!! I also spent some time cleaning and organizing...the last couple of weeks have really been hard on my poor old house!! Anyway....after I cleaned up my craft room, I messed it all up again creating this card......

The Featured Stamper challenge on Splitcoast today features the fabulous gallery of Marisa (WhiteRockMama). I chose to case her Verve Release Challenge Sketch card because of the wonderful sentiment and gorgeous colors!! I kept the same basic design with the sentiment as the main image, the butterfly, colors, and the ribbon. I added the frame, buttons, pearls, and dp. The sentiment is from Gina K's Inside and Out set and the butterfly is from Gina K's Hugs and Prayers.The paper is Prima's Annalee and the frame is from Pink Paislee. The pearls, buttons, twine, ribbon, and lace finish it off.
Recipe:
Stamps: Gina K's Hugs and Prayers and Inside and Out
Paper: Vanilla, Melon Mambo, Prima's Annalee dp
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories: Pearl Flourish, Buttons, Twine, Artisan Element Frame, Silk Ribbon, Lace, Sewing Machine, Glitter for the Butterfly

Thanks for visiting .....after church in the morning I hope to work on some fun projects that were ignored during the busy holiday season. Have a wonderful Sunday!! Now I better get to bed before I turn into a pumpkin!!!

That is a beautiful card! I am more clean and simple, but I just love the look of lots of embellishments. I just can't seem to do it myself, lol.
