Wow, That's Different!


Now, for something completely different!
Burgandy, gray and bright yellow...those were the recent colors Stacey challenged us to use for her Jewelry Challenge! Now that's a challenge!
The verse is another FREE download from Sammi of Crafty Muse! (thank you Sammi for your generosity!)
I used the sketch from the Cupcake Craft challenge. The fern image is a retired SU! set; Definitely Decorative Ferns (2001) and the butterfly, dusted with yellow Pearl Ex, is from Hot off the Press~Flights of Fancy.
It's very different isn't it? I'm still deciding if I like it!!
