Something Completely Different

I'm still in challenge mode, and this time I went in a vintage-y direction with the latest Deconstructing Jen sketch:

I'm also still in a "use the new stuff so you can put it away" mode, so I grabbed my Basic Grey "little black dress" 6x6 paper pack and made this:

I was totally driven by the paper here, and I used all sorts of stash. The lace is some Hero Arts lace I got about a year ago, and I've used the last full piece. The pearls in the center of the rolled flowers are from my old SU Pretties kit. The rub-on was a last-minute addition to fill the empty in the center - it's a Bo Bunny rub-on, and I had to open the package to use it. The butterfly is punched with an MS punch, and if I were a better photographer, you'd see its only stuck on in the center and the wings are raised up.

I'm pretty happy with how the rolled flowers turned out! :) This is going into a package I'm mailing, so I don't even need to worry about it getting all flattened in transit. yee-hah!

Thanks for stopping by!
