Courage

Thanks for stopping by today!
I have to admit I almost didn't get a card made for this week's Crazy 4 Challenge #119 :(
I was waiting for some new supplies earlier in the week and they didn't arrive. So I put it off but then we had a bunch of changes at work and frankly I wasn't in the crafting mood.
BUT....
I've decided to keep an open mind and just suck it up. I am always up for a challenge and learning new things.
I thought this sentiment from Verve's set called Blue Skies was wonderful :)

This week the Crazies are using shades of blue!
Easy right?
I pulled out some pretty My Mind's Eye Lost & Found - Breeze DP
Added a felt butterfly with the Flutterby die and accented with some pearls.
Stamps: Blue Skies; Cardstock: Kraft, MME Lost & Found-Breeze; Inks: Black; Accessories: Corner Chomper, Oval Nesties, MFT Felt, Pearls, Sewing, Dimensionals
The layout comes from the Viva La Verve January Week 2 Sketch.

I hope that you'll come play along with us at the Crazy 4 Challenges this week!
If you do and upload to SCS please use the keyword C4C119 and also link up on the C4C blog.
Now hop on over to the C4C blog to see what the girls have come up with!

The vintage feel is lovely. I really think that butterfly is great, especially with the pearls. Where do you get your felt from?
