Wishes, wishes,wishes

This month at Gingersnap creations it's all about...Organization especially using scraps. This week's supply challenge GSC134 is about  Ribbon Scraps. Come on over and paly there's a  pretty prize or just come look at the gorgeous design team creations. So, if you're like me I just can't bear to throw away ribbon scraps. I keep them in a big clear bag and fish around whenever I need a little piece of somethin'. I know there must be a better way, maybe when I unpack my new scrap room, I'll figure out something!

To make my card today, I painted the pale blue background cardstock with black watercolor to give it some punch. The little bits of ribbon and lace came next; there are six different kinds used. I made the  butterfly that was layered on the top too. I added gold stickers, Stickles, ink and rhinestones to a picture of a pretty blue butterfly. The rub-on sentiment of wishes, wishes, wishes completed this little card.

Hope all your wishes will come true this week.
take care, gerri
