Hybrid Makes Me Happy

Well, it's been a while since I've done a hybrid Thursday, and I sure miss them. This week this Butterflies in Heaven digi kit just called my name. I tried to resist, saying I was too busy, but I just kept dreaming in aqua and purple with these awesome butterflies, so I quit fighting and started creating! Since it's Thursday, all new releases are 20% off at The Digichick Boutique, so if this kit is now calling YOUR name, you can pick it up at a discount!

The card uses today's Mojo celebration sketch, which was designed by Sarah Bigelow. Sarah's got a little blog candy on her blog today to celebrate her sketch, so be sure to check it out. The circles are cut with Classic & Scallop Nestabilities, then I used the nestie as a stencil to sponge Broken China distress ink all around the inner circle. The sentiment is from the Dare to Be You set. All of the butterflies and papers (except the Elegant Eggplant mats) are from the Butterflies in Heaven Collab. I sponged the edges of all the layers for depth and then added some lace, ribbons and rhinestones.

The adorable little box is made with the Top-Heavy Box Template included in Kelleigh's August Grab Bag. I am in love with the shape of this box, and you know I couldn't resist this aqua paper included in the collab. It's all printed and cut out and sponged with Broken China. The sentiment is from the Beautiful Kindness set.

Okay, that's it for now, peeps. Hybrid really does make me happy and I hope it brightened your day too! Thanks for stopping by!

  15. I really love mixing my colors, but I don't think I would have dared purple and blue. Purple scares me. And yet I LOVE this card. It's incredibly beautiful. As is the box, of course.
