Challenge #197~~~Lost and Found

Looking for my Clear it Out post, scroll down or click HERE

Shopping Our Stash Challenge # 197 is Lost & Found -- use something you've re-discovered (could have been lost, you could have just forgotten you owned it). As you know my room has been recently decluttered now there were lots of lost things found, one was my tulip border embossing folder, so that is where I was starting from. I was sorting a box and an already coloured and fussy cut image was found so step two now to figure out what to do with my two found items, well on seeing The Crooked Stamper’s Sketch #3 I had it made in the shade. Here is it………

This stamp is from the Stamp Barn which is no longer in business but the Frog’s Whiskers in Cambellford bought it and you can still get the image in cling mount and a die to cut it out. At Scrapfest on Saturday I bought the die to match my stamp. Of course I didn’t get to use it as this image was already finished waiting to be used.

The cute little butterfly button is from a package I had forgotten I had bought at Winners at Christmas I found it in a box of cardstock I was sorting. I made some clouds with a plastic cloud template and All Night Media chalks.

Here is the inside of the card, The sentiment is from Stampendous and is called N058 Light in Dark.
I would like to enter this in :
The Crooked Stamper’s Sketch #3
CSSC#3-final
Thanks for stopping by today and go find something you have lost or forgotten you owned and join in the fun at Shopping Our Stash.

Great take on the CSSC and I love that you found the butterflies in a non crafty box...I don't know how you keep track of anything once you start travelling to the cottage!

Those butterflies are just gorgeous. A shame they were just found cuz I would not have been able to lose them. Just too pretty.

Barbara, this is just stunning and the embossing is definitely the elevating element. The butterflies are beautiful, as well! Very nicely done!
