Be sure to come back on Wednesday to see who earned the badge.
 I used the following dies:
 Bird Cage
 Pennant Die
 Exotic Butterfly Medium #3

I decided I wanted to play with a few dies I haven't used much.This is a quick layout but has so many wonderful layers. Let me share a few extra pictures.

I started with this very colorful piece of paper, I used a honeycomb that wasn't fully cut as a stencil. Using modeling paste I added a pattern sporadically. I then used some Gesso around the edges.
I then matted this top piece on top of a piece of yellow card stock, then stitched with my sewing machine all around the edges. I won't say it is very straight but I still like it very much.
Just Wanted to share a few more close ups

These are pictures of my beautiful daughter.
This was a great layout to put together and I enjoyed all the pieces.
Hope you join us this week and use some Stitches
