she is so cute {DT work for sketchabilities}

hello scrappy friends! 

today we've got a huge party going on in the NETHERLANDS - it's the QUEEN's BIRTHDAY! 

there is music, dancing and beer on every corner of the city, everyone is dressed in ORANGE and having FUN! hence my late post... 

it's the end of april and it is time for the second reveal for april at sketchabilities - sketch #70.

"she is so cute"

and this the sketch #70:

i started with white cardstock {i'm addicted to it lately}, butterfly glimmer screens and TIM HOLTZ' "spun sugar" and "worn lipstick" distress ink. for the edges i used MARTHA STEWART "butterfly" edge punch.

for the fussy cut elements i used some vintage PRIMA collections - "shabby chic" and "raspberry tea".

here are a few close ups:

for the big butterflies i used marianne design cutting die, martha stewart "monarch butterfly" punch and a printed butterfly from the "morning poetry" paper; i added rhinestones for extra glam:-)

i stitched the blue frame by hand; the banner is stamped with my mind's eye clear stamp set; i stitched the edge and added rhinestones:

for the name banner i used spellbinders nested lacey pennants and PRIMA alphabte stickers "almanac": 

the bird cage is also from marianne design:

the small butterflies are punched with martha stewart punches:

the flowers are from PRIMA marketing - sculpture blossoms, e line pink flowers and caboodles:

i hope you like my project!

off to join the party now!

hugs 'n smiles,
