Happy Birthday - {SSSC261}

 Hi there!  I'm jumping in late with my card for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge.  Sorry I've been missing lately, I've been busy working and have had things in my life that needed my attention.  
For my card I used the Papertrey Ink stamp sets Beautiful Butterflies, Beautiful Butterflies Layers and Think Big Favorites to create a birthday card.  I used a bunch of bright colors from Limeade Ice, Raspberry Fizz, Hawaiian Shores and an SU color Lavender Lace and stamped most of the butterflies from with in the stamp set.  I chose to die cut and pop the largest center butterfly for some dimension and scattered a few sequins for a touch of sparkle.
Thank you for your visit!

Bring on the Bling - {C4C277}

Hello there!  Anja has a fun challenge for us this week over at the Crazy-4-Challenges site, it's Bring on the BLING!  We hope you'll take the time to play along with us.

I need a birthday card for my niece and thought this challenge would give me an opportunity to create something "blingy" that a teenager would like.  I used the Papertrey Ink stamp sets Wet Paint for my sentiment which I stamped in hawaiian shores onto a PTI die cute bookmark.  Once I stamped my sentiment, I used the PTI set Ombre Builders and stamped the top half of the bookmark using limeade Ice and hawaiian shore.  After that I attached my layered Beautiful Butterfly that I die cut, added three rhinestones on the body and to really bling it up, I added sequins the color of each stamped ombre.  I embossed the background with a PTI impressions plate, ran a line of double sided tape about a half inch down from the top and added glitter.  This card really looks so much better in person, it sparkles with all of the rhinestones, sequins and glitter.

Hello Friend - {SSSC259}

Hello friends!  Have you heard the news?  The Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge has a new home! We hope you'll pop over to take a look at our new site and play along with this week's challenge.

This week's challenge is to create a card using a past Sweet Sunday Sketch.  Once you've created your card, be sure to link it up to our new site.
For my card, I used last week's sketch #258 which I loved (something about the large middle circle gives so many possibilities).  I also used another new Papertrey Ink stamp set, Bitty Bouquets.  The font for the sentiments in this set along with the different flowers makes it a must have, so pretty.  I started out with a white card base, then an embossed panel of raspberry fizz, a strip of white cardstock and white banners and a square of bright yellow gingham designer paper.  I stamped my sentiment and added my die cut roses with a little bit of yellow stickles in their centers and tied on some yellow bakers twine to finish it off.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!
