SSS39 All Creatures Great and Small

Hello everyone!!  Today I was surfing around the net and decided to play The Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge - SSS39.  This week, not only do you follow the sketch, the twist is to only have a sentiment as the focal point!  (Even better - there's a prize up for grabs this week too!!!  )  I thought of the new ODBD set Noah's Ark and this adorable sentiment!  :)  This was a great, quick, fun sketch to play with!

I started with a base of Bravo Burgundy and layered with pale pink bazzill and SEI First Kiss PP (double sided).  I then took the middle piece of paper and matted it with more BB that had been punched with the Fiskars Lace Border Punch.  The sentiment is from ODBD's Noah's Ark stamp set and has been stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and cut with Mega Long Rectangle Nestabilities and matted with some more BB.  Underneath the sentiment I knotted some pink/burgundy reversible ribbon and above the sentiment I punched two Martha Stewart Monarch Butterflies in pink and burgundy.  To finish I added a couple of Kaisercraft Rose Pearls to the top and bottom corners.

Stamps - Noah's Ark (ODBD)
Paper - Bravo Burgundy, Pale Pink Bazzill, White, SEI First Kiss PP
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories - Martha Stewart Monarch Butterfly Punch, Mega Long Rectangle Nestabilities, Pink/Burgundy reversible ribbon, Fiskars Lace Border Punch, Kaisercraft Rose Pearls.

That's all for now, thanks for visiting!!!  :)
