Retro Sketches 11 and Dynamic Duos 2

Saturday, May 12, 2012

I love Saturday.  Not only is it the beginning of a two-day vacation from work, but it is also the day when there are a lot of challenges that are on my list to check out each week.  Unfortunately, I always seem to run out of time and don't always get to participate in all of them, but today I was lucky enough to combine two of them:  retro sketches and Dynamic Duos.




The big butterfly was cut with the Beautiful Butterflies Sizzix Bigz Die:  I layered some So Saffron cardstock with some DP that I found in my stash that matches extremely well.  I don't know what it's called or where it came from, but it provided a nice addition to my little butterfly.  The sentiment is one of my favorite "happy birthday" stamps from All Holidays.  

Today I spent some time in the garden doing some weeding, mowing the lawn and getting some flowers ready for planting and I'm pooped!  I'm lucky that I had some energy to find my way to my stamp room, but now that I'm here and I've made this card, I find myself completely tapped out and I'm heading off to sleep.
Thanks for stopping by!
