Butterfly Dream Notebook

Paper Makeup Stamps - M4TW28 Notebook
Flutterby Wednesday - FBW #111

I decorated a notebook for Paper Makeup Stamps weekend challenge. If you're ever looking for an inspirational quote, PMS is the place to check! {wink} This word art is from their Dream Big set. I wanted to highlight the word "dream" and I decided to make a butterfly template using my SU! die cut and then sponge a butterfly centered over that word in the quote. I {heart} how it looks in real life. My camera just doesn't do it justice, but you get the idea. The quote is embossed for texture and the border of the circle is outlined with a spica glitter pen for sparkle. Here's a full-sized pic of the notebook.

The paper that I used is from a Butterflies & Blossoms pad that I found at Michael's. It has beautiful silver embossing on the corner flourish, butterflies and polka dots. Again hard to capture with my camera. The ribbon is from May Arts.

Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek! :)
