TECC76 Metamorphosis

Hey - and hello again from Florida. I'll be heading to the airport to fly home by the time you are reading this post, but wanted to have my post ready for today's Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge. Today's sketch was just perfect for the image that I wanted to use today.

This butterfly is from the Take Flight set by Gina K Designs. I don't think I have ever seen a pink butterfly in nature, but anything goes when we are talking crafting, right?

I stamped my butterfly onto white cardstock, colored it, and with my scissors, I cut around the top of the butterfly. I knew that I wanted to use my circle nestabilities, so I lifted the wings above my nestie before I ran it through my Wizard. To decorate the circle a little more, I used some of the uber fantastic Zva Creative crystals that I got from i {heart} papers.

Are you ready to try your hand at this sketch? We'd love it if you would like to play along too. Just create a card and post it to your blog or gallery, then visit Taylor's blog and leave her a link to your creation. You may even be Taylor's Featured Cupcake Sampler next week. The Featured Cupcake Sampler this week is Teresa Kline. Be sure to check her blog to see what she has done with this week's sketch.

I hope you'll check out the other awesome creations from the rest of the crew for some awesome inspiration using this great sketch:
