Yesterday is Gone

I made this tonight after a stressful day at work. I am so glad I can come home and enjoy this wonderful craft! Today, I combined two of my most favorite challenges. The color combo challenge from SCS and the Midnight Madness Sketch challenge!!! When I first read the color combo, I thought these colors would never work! I was wrong!!! I don't have Baja Breeze ink so I scribbled Soft Sky re-inker onto an acrylic block and tapped the beautiful lotus bloom from the Mother Teresa set from Our Daily Bread designs into it and stamped. Then I stamped the sentiment from the Let Us Begin set and cut out with a square nestie. The flowers are from the Pretties kit from SU! I colored them with a copic marker(#Y21), going over them several times to get the shade I wanted. I used SU!'s eyelet border punch and EK Success scallop border punch. The hardware is SU! Silver HodgePodge Hardware. The Martha Stewart butterflies have silver half pearls on them. I added a strip of Baja Breeze ribbon and Apricot Appeal ribbon over that. Here's hoping tomorrow is a better day! And I hope you all have a wonderful Wednesday! Thanks for visiting!
