Adventure Awaits

Welcome to Sherrie Scraps
Hi everyone!
I hope you are having a great week~
 I played in a challenge over at Frilly & Funkie and won a gift certificate from the The Funkie Junkie Boutique.  After looking in the boutique, I chose some crafting supplies that I could use for when I start my Christmas projects. Also, in my package of items, a couple of surprises.....there was this awesome image, button and some fun charms included. I have been holding onto them, thinking of what I could create with them and as soon as I saw
  Frilly and Funkie's new challenge "By the Sea"and I knew this was the time.
Thanks again Linda for the fun little extras! 
So, I got busy creating and this is what I came up with~
After choosing my card base and base layer, I followed with a pretty layer which I ran Viva Crackling Cream through a stencil from Folk Art for a crackling effect. After it dried, the next layer is Tim Holtz Sizzix Thinlits Mixed Media Die.  I then began to build the layers again doing the same process. I added cheesecloth for some texture. The sweet image is from Frilly and Funkie which I adhered onto a Jaded Blossom Luggage Tag Die.
 I tucked beneath the tag (on the side) the sentiment which is stamped with Jaded Blossom's
Up, Up and Away stamp set. I embossed it with fantasy silver from Sweet Stamps. The butterflies are Jaded Blossoms Spring Dies 2  and embossed in shabby blue enamel embossing powder.
I am entering this in the following challenges:
1.) Frilly and Funkie Challenge~ By the Sea
2.) DL.ART Thankful Thursday~Challenge #185 Anything Goes
