Since this week we were able to choose one of our digi stamps to use in our projects, I ended up choosing a sentiment digi called "Sentiment - More Butterflies" by StampArt by Kathryne . . . it actually has several sentiments, so I chose "Life if like a butterfly . . . You can chase it or you can let it come to you" since it seemed like the PERFECT sentiment for a graduation card.   And as you might have read over the weekend,  my daughter graduated this weekend.   Here's how it turned out:

"Urban Market" washi tape by Teresa Collins
misc. washi tape in gray and blue/gray chevron
corrugated kraft paper by Fancy Pants
Layering stencil (Speckles - THS021) by Tim Holtz
Archival Inky by Ranger  (Cobalt and Watering Can)
Momento ink in Tuxedo Black

This was actually my first attempt for a different DT project that went up Sunday, but the sentiment I wanted to use didn't fit it quite right . . . so I set this one aside until a bit later. What can I say? . . . I don't like to let things (especially my crafty things) go to waste. :) (If you would like to see how I changed it to make a completely different, but still GREAT card, click HERE.)

When I came back to it, I changed one of the gray washi tapes (from diagonal to floral) and tried it with the butterfly sentiment and it worked PERFECT!!!!  Added a layered butterfly chipboard & a Daisy chipboard from UmWowStudio (my FAVORITE place to get chipboard, flair, masks, inks, etc.) along with some "speckles" of ink . . . and VOILA! I was excited to see how GREAT everything came together. :)  

Remember, you have one (1) week to get your projects in to Clear It Out Challenge to eligible for the weekly prize.  I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with  . . . and how everyone one else interprets "black with stickers" since I used shades of black (the gray) along with black ink and also used the washi tape as a type of sticker.  

Till the next time I'm up in the night.
