Make It Monday and CPS 211

I'm amazed that I actually had time (or energy) to make the Make It Monday challenge on the same day it was issued (I guess the exercise program is paying off in unexpected ways :)

I also used the layout from the CPS211 sketch challenge.  I wanted to make something simple but with a pop

For the center piece I cut a chipboard coaster down to 1.25" square.  I used the blending tips from Betsy's MIM video and colored it.  I used sponger daubers and Spring Rain, Aqua Mist, and Ocean Tides.

The pierced square in the center was made using an old SU! brass template

The sentiment and butterfly are from Round & Round.

Thanks for stopping by!
