Winter's Butterfly

Hi, all! It's been a crazy week here so far...I'm glad tomorrow is the start of a three-day weekend!

I loved
Laura's sketch 36 this week, and I knew immediately what I wanted to do with it. I played with some new goodies--BasicGrey's Eskimo Kisses paper, Hero Arts' Winter's Butterfly set, AND my new EK Success snowflake punch (bought with a 50% off coupon from JoAnn--woohoo!). I paired it with an SU snowflake from last year, some PTI ribbon, and a brad I've had in my stash for ages. What do you think?

Stamps: Winter's Butterfly (Hero Arts)
Paper: Sweet Blush, Bazzill textured, BasicGrey dp

Ink: Garden Green
Accessories: EK Success snowflake punch, PTI ribbon, SU felt snowflake, Oriental Trading Co. brad

It's so pretty and making me actually look forward to snow!! Love the stamp sentiment. Never quite thought of it that way. I'm glad to have a winter butterfly since I'll be missing the spring/summer ones.
