Layout #61

Here's a fairly simple layout I did for this week's Sketchy Thursday challenge. I doctored up a grungeboard "5" with Perfect Pearls, fussy cut some butterflies from a some girls' clothing tags, and did a bunch of machine stitching. I almost went with a purple background, but I'm glad I used more of the brown and green. I think it makes the purple pop.

Supplies (all CTMH): cardstock and patterned paper from Bella Level 2 paper pack, Exclusive Inks stamp pad in Olive, Giggle Caps My Acrylix stamp set

Other: Tim Holtz Grungeboard, Distress Ink, and Perfect Pearls, Prima journaling card, Magenta stickers, Bazill Basics trim, Creative Memories pen, butterflies from clothing tags
