"For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it." ~ Isaiah 55: 8-11

UNSCRIPTED BEAUTIFUL BLOOMS / USSIS #51 & PDCC #25...


Yep - it's Saturday!!! You know what that means ~ time for another awesome sketch challenge over at Unscripted Sketches!!!




I know, this is a pretty dark card for me, but everyone has a special 'goth' friend that this type of card would be perfect for, right? Well, maybe I'll just send this one to Abby Sciuto...
I paired today's Unscripted sketch with the super fab colors from the Play Date Cafe... all they wanted was a 'splash' of color... that's all they're getting from me - lol!

I ASSURE YOU, at some point I WILL get tired of these dies from Papertrey... just not yet, okay? I ordered another set of their flower dies a couple nights ago... YAY! I cut this flower out of vellum, 2 of each of the 3 sizes. After I secured them with the brad, I puffed them up a little. When I reorganized last weekend, I realized I had both of the Martha matching butterfly punches... which gave me 3 sizes to play with. I added little rhinestones for their bodies. I finished it off with a scrap of ribbon & a little jewelry tag...

Hope you have an awesome Saturday & don't forget to lay along with Unscripted this week!

This is absolutely gorgeous. I love the pop of color, the vellum flowers, and all the butterflies.

And I for one, don't mind if you keep using these dies. It is on my to do list to case one of your other cards using these dies. Thanks so much.

So cute Arielle! I don't think it's too gothy, and play with those flowers as much as you want, it's all about having fun and your creating such pretty stuff!
