Taylored Expressions August Blast from the Past Blog Hop!!

Hello! I'm excited to be participating in the August Taylored Expressions Blast from the Past Blog Hop! Each month, Taylor invites her customers to participate in this fun hop and feature Taylored Expressions Stamps! The theme for our hop is Collector's Anonymous. We're encouraged to use all of those ribbons and other embellishments that we crafters tend to hoard... :)

If you happened here by chance, please check the full list of participants at the bottom of this post!

I stamped and colored the Summer Wreath and die cut it with the matching Seasonal Wreath die. My sentiment is also from Summer Wreath. I also added a layered butterfly (cut from vellum) using the Butterflies die.

My patterned paper, cardstock, and rhinestones are from the Taylored Expressions August Key Ingredients kit. My ribbon and button are from older Taylored Expressions kits. If you are unfamiliar with these kits, you can learn all about them on the Key Ingredients blog, HERE.

I used Sankari's fun sketch for my layout:
