Freshly Made Sketches #38

This is my 1000th post.
I find it hard to believe that I have done this
Crazy right?

Well, on to the stamping...

Well I finally had time to pull out the new stamp set Papaya Collage.

And then I decided to try out the latest sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.

I decided to try out a vintage look.

I stamped the frame on some of the new Comfort Cafe paper (DSP)
I tore the edges and distressed them with sandpaper and a sponge.
I did the same with the layer of First Edition DSP (paper)

Do you like the medallion in the middle?  I stamped the image on Very Vanilla and then used the new labels framelits to trim it down.  I aligned the framelit with one edge of the image, cut it out, then aligned it with the other edge and cut it out again.  I'm pretty pleased with the result.

I stamped the butterfly on a piece of First Edition DSP as well. 
Then I cut it out and popped it up on a very small piece of a Stampin' Dimensional.

The above photo shows the butterfly from another angle. 

I gathered some Pool Party Seam Binding Ribbon
and used and Edgelit to trim a piece of Midnight Muse card stock for the bottom.

Here's a final view of my card.
You can really see the letters on the butterfly in this one.
