Joan's Challenge Post It Cover

Good Morning Ladies,
I had a very full day yesterday. I did not get to blog. Bummer
I have been up early this morning working on the Joan's Challenge Post It Cover. You can join us over at http://www.atjoansgardens.com/2012/03/this-weeks-challenge_29.html Just click the link and it will take you to the challenge.
The challenge this week is
Cover a Post It Note pad
Use a die-cut for the background
The color purple
Use a butterfly or something from nature
Here is my entry.....
 To create this post it note cover I used a piece of dsp in a leaf design. Pillow case lace and ribbon was added to the bottom to give it texture. My base die-cut is from a Marianne die cut with vellum. I added a crystal spray. I cut a leaf die using a Cheery Lynn die. This was cut out of Graphic 45 paper and cut apart to create three leaves. For my flower I used a Hero Arts set. I stamped this on purple paper with black ink. Each layer was cut out and stacked. A heart brad keeps it all together and is the center of the flower. Then came the butterfly. This butterfly was cut using a Cherry Lynn die. It seemed a little off balance. So I added three pearls to the upper left hand corner. The dies can be purchased at Joan's Gardens. She has the most awesome dies!
This is a side view to show the post it note pad. Thanks for another great challenge and tutorial Joan and Selma!
I am planning a trip to Joan's this afternoon with a friend. Can't wait til it's time to go. All those wonderful dies and goodies she has....ohhhh!
Happy Scraps,
Mrs. Swandog
