Welcome to Sherrie Scraps
Hello Everyone! 
I hope you are all enjoying your summer! I can't believe it's almost July! Eeek, where does the time go?! As you know, summers are busy....We have had some grad parties, a few summer picnics and of course...weddings which we have one right around the corner again.  As of now, my calendar doesn't look to full for July so hoping to get some craft time in~sure missing crafting and blogging these days!
I have received a few things in the mail lately and I have been dying to get in my craft room to use. I had some time to myself this afternoon and decided to join in on some fun challenges, some even at the last minute, yikes!

 I also received some happy mail today from the The Funkie Junkie Boutique which I won in a challenge at Frilly and Funkie and will be creating something real soon with those goodies as well :)

So, I decided today to share a shabby chic wedding card that I created using the new Tweet Home die for my focal point from Tutti Designs which I just love!
I started with my background which is water colored using Tim Holtz Spun Sugar, Peeled Paint and Weather Wood distressed ink. Texture paste was applied through the Tim Holtz layering stencil, then a layer of tack cloth.  I layered a smaller panel, same as base layer and followed with the Honey Comb Remnant die from Memory Box, pearls and lace ribbon.
The Tweet home die was cut out in card stock and foam for dimension. I used shabby white embossing enamel, shabby pink embossing enamel on the birdhouse and the birds with shabby blue all from Simon Says Stamps. I just love this adds some texture and love the sparkle to!
Beneath the gorgeous flowers which are Prima flowers (new to my stash) is the Memory Box Chloe Stem which my friend Lisa sent me and covered in shabby white embossing enamel.
The bow is created with yummy Pure Love ribbon from my sweet friend, Diana.  On the bow, I used the Wee Petites Buttons Galore in the center from Die Versions. The banner is My Creative Time's Vintage Stitched Label die, the congrats is My Creative Time's  Mini Greeting die and the butterflies are My Creative Time's Pretty Butterflies and Dragonfly dies.
I am entering this in the following challenges:
1.) Frilly and Funky Challenge~Pastels and Pearls
2.) DL.ART Thankful Thursday~Challenge #183 Summertime
3.) Dies R Us Challenge #51 Butterflies
4.) Simon Says Stamps Wednesday Challenge~Add some Shimmer
