Ribbons, butterflies, and the great outdoors...

Ahhhh back in the craft room today for the first time in a week...
It was fabulous!!  I got a lot accomplished, but as I mentioned before,
I can't share too much with you as I'm getting ahead for the anything but a card challenge
Coming to a computer near you September 2nd!

I did take some time out to smash tho! 
I struggled with this one girls... 
Something about these circles just threw me off....

I tried them all over the page! And finally I stuck them around the SC 
digi and glued them down! 
The Challenge over at Saturated Canary Challenge is the great outdoors!
I Love this image, and colored her up with my copics

Then I did something I'd never tried before...
I cut out another image and masked her up and Distressed and glimmer misted the background!
It hurt a little to spray up a perfectly good image
but I love the way she turned out!
I also got a little creative with the ribbon behind the banner... Some ribbon and twine! 

And the butterflies in the circles are from Denami Designs.  
And my new favorite tool the die cut machine churned out the flower and the circles, and the pretty
scallopy design for the butterfly girl! 
I left some space at the top of the page for some journaling.
