Heaven Must Be Shades of Lavender

Though, looking a little blue, the project here highlights shades of lavender.  This dreamy color, comes courtesy of this challenge - CR84FN35:

I enjoyed adding all of the little shapes together with this one.  I added a small scalloped border to the sides of my ribbon-like banner.  Then used 2 sides of the Top Note to accent the sides some more.  What a great way to use up scraps!

I wanted to use a delicate image with these colors.  I thought the beautiful swirls of the butterfly from Stampin Up's Hope and Strength campaign, along with the sentiment tag on the bottom would add to the gentle theme I was looking for.

To get just the words I wanted, I used a marker to color the stamp and used one of my millions of white paper strips on which to stamp.  Clipped the corners (there must be a punch for that shape, already?!) and popped everything on dimensionals.

Thanks for visiting!
Hope you find your slice of heaven today.
