Market Street Stamps and June SFYTT

Hello! Our house officially went on the market yesterday morning, and we already have a showing this evening! YIKES! Kind of scary, crazy, and exciting all at the same time. So in between running around and tidying up the house yesterday, I managed to get this made for the Market Street Stamps Paint the Town Color Challenge, as well as the I{heart}2stamp June Sketch for You to Try - the sentiment is especially appropriate right now it seems!
Here is the color combo:

And here is the sketch:

I really  just am in love with the little Market Street Stamps set! The sentiment is so inspiring - especially with where I am at in my life right now facing so many changes with a move to another state for the first time in my life - and the butterflies are just plain GORGEOUS! I used some Spellbinders dies to cut and emboss the shapes, and some Basic Grey PB&J papers from a 6x6 paper pad. 
The butterflies are stamped with Tim Holtz ink, then cut out and adhered in the center, and the wings curled up and around slightly. 
I also added some lace, cotton twill ribbon, and jute twine from Ribbon Carousel, as well as a PTI green button. 
I love how lumpy and bumpy and dimensional this card is!  
Finished off by using a paper piercer to add some holes around the outside of the card, and the outside of the sentiment frame, and added a little sprinkle of bling. 
I am also entering this in the Word Art Wednesday Challenge #33.

Thanks for stopping by today! I am off to spend a lot of time tidying up our house to be ready for the showing this evening. Fingers crossed that it all works out well!
