My Second Swallowtail

Guess what?  This is my 100th post here at Snapdragon Stamps!  Just thought I'd share that :)  I got in my stamp room yesterday and after a LOT of thought (though, oddly, no chocolate), I made this card.  Lookie!


This is for the Still Addinktive challenge, which is sketch and/or color:


I originally thought I'd do a different color combo, but I just really wanted to see what that butterfly would look like embossed with the Pool Party EP on Island Indigo, so I did both halves of the challenge after all.  I am LOVING this giant butterfly.  This card was pretty quick to put together too since I just embossed the butterfly and didn't color it in.

Everything on here is SU only, but the ribbon is retired.  It's from a holiday catalog past...I got it thinking I might use it for my Christmas cards whatever year that was, but the knot is too thick to get by our picky picky postmaster, so I've got a roll that's still almost full.  So I'll take opportunities to use up some retired stuff :)  And this card is going out in the mail TODAY, I'm so proud!  :D

Thanks for stopping by, let's hope this is the beginning of a fabulous week!

Supplies (all SU!):
Stamps:  Swallowtail, Vintage Verses (SAB)
Ink:  Versamark, Island Indigo
Paper:  Island Indigo, Pool Party, In Color & Regals DSP Stacks (I used up some scraps, yay me!)
Accessories:  retired quilted satin Cherry Cobbler ribbon, Pool Party EP, Hearts a Flutter Framelits

Ooh this is so pretty Christy! That butterfly looks gorgeous is pool party. I've been trying to resist that butterfly because I have so many butterfly things, but you've made me REALLY want it!
Anyway, thanks for playing along with our challenge at still addINKtive this week. I love what you've done with the colours and the sketch.

100 posts already? Guess that means I've missed a LOT. Guess what I'll be doing until bedtime?
