I made another card for  ODBD Stamping In Time: On Assignment Challenge(SNTODBD39)! The assignment is to recycle.  I was cleaning my crafting space and found this butterfly on the floor that I know I used on  a card before.  Oh, dear!   Anyway, it works great for this challenge. I am choosing to recycle it!

I am using Chupa's weekly sketchbook 20.  Look....no bow!  I kept my card pretty much clean and simple!  Trying to follow the sketch was not easy. I so wanted to add a bow!     I did sew on it, rock and roll, added some glitter, and used the stamp a ma jig for the perfect placement of my "Thankful" word.   All in all still pretty CAS for me!    I am using ODBD Butterfly single, butterfly die, Vintage Border Background, the newly released Large Scrapbook Words, and ODBD Exclusive Elegant Ovals Spellbinder dies!  I am really enjoying these big words!  While the title says scrapbook words, I love them on cards, too!  Also, look how beautifully the Vintage Border Background coordinates with the SU pattern paper.



 
I have a little blog candy offer for you!  I am using the new SU In Color Island Indigo on my card!  I just got my little order a few days ago.  I bought two  paper packs.  I got the NEW In Color Collection and the First Edition Specialty dsp!  I always cut my 12 x 12 papers into 6 x6 squares.  I thought I would give a 6X6 section of both packs as some blog candy as a little thank you to all my blog supporters.  That is 64 sheets of 6 X 6 pattern papers.  For this little chunk of candy,  I will also throw in a few yards of some hugs snugs seam binding.  All you have to do is leave me a comment here on this post!  You have until 6pm Wednesday,  July 27th!  I will announce the winner next Thursday on the new ODBD Stamping In Time Challenge post here on my blog!   


As always, thanks so much for stopping by!
