No. 2


Had the time (relatively speaking) to make one more card for the Sketch This card challenge. And since I hadn't used my new "Priceless" stamp set from SU, I combined the 2 tasks for this card. I also used a couple of the new in-colors. Groovy Guava is very pretty and this color combo (featured on pg 6 of the new catty) is stunning- Groovy Guava, Old Olive and River Rock.

Details, details- Card base as mentioned is Groovy Guava. I stamped the rectangles in the 3 above-mentioned colors using my Stampamajig!!!!! (Yeah for me!) Then I masked off the shape and stamped the butterflies in my Palette Noir Black ink pad. Next step was to distress the edge of the white using my Cutter kit from SU. I layered that onto River Rock which was paper pierced using the Ornare corner template I purchased at Ellen Hutson's online store. A little Heidi Swapp bling accents the piercing nicely. I punched a small horizontal slot (SU) onto this piece as well and slipped an Offray sheer black and white polka-dotted ribbon through, tying it in a knot and hanging a small paper charm* (sponged with River Rock ink and a small copper star added). The last step was stamping one corner with the large swirl from the set and the bottom corner with "Priceless".

This adjective describes a certain friend of mine to a tee and I can't wait to send her this card.
I've got company coming for dinner so I am off to make my skillet lasagna. I'll "see" you guys here again tomorrow.hugs

*P.S. I got the cutest little envelope in the mail today with a few little odds and ends including the paper charm I used on this card. It was just what I needed at just the right moment...thank you, Lisa W!
