Saturday Morning Inspiration

Good morning everyone.....I am on a roll with using up scraps and left over stuff!! It really feels good to clear out a few things....make room for some new stuff...Whoohoo!!!
 I popped in to Splitcoast  last night to check out the Inspiration Challenge...my little Texas buddy Anne Harada was the hostess and she picked the most awesome internet store to find our inspiration!! I found my inspiration from the Henkeltesche bag. The butterflies from Rubbernecker's Butterflies are Free set were stamped with Not Quite Navy, sponged with the same ink, and popped up with foam dots. The sentiment is from the same set and the background was stamped with RN's Dandelion Garden Border on the designer paper...sewing, distressing, a ribbon rose, seam binding, and lace finish it off.
Recipe: 
Stamps: Rubbernecker
Paper: Vanilla, Not Quite Navy, Chocolate Chip,  7 Gypsies dp
Ink: Not Quite Navy
Accessories: Ribbon Rose, Twine, Seam Binding, Lace, Sewing Machine


Thanks for visiting on this wonderful Spring Saturday....have a great day!!!!

Hi, Joan! I'm working on getting caught up with my favorite bloggers and couldn't let this go by without telling you I think it is just gorgeous! Blue always catches my eye, especially when combined with a vintage look and distressing. Love it!
