Sweet Sketch



Good Tuesday Morning Peeps!!

Today's card is made with the Sweet Sunday Sketch on Karen Giron's blog "The Sweetest Thing"

I based my card on the second one in this post on Dawn Easton's blog TreasureOiler Designz. Dawn is such a sweetheart she has given me alot of inspiration and encouragement. She has even e-mailed me a couple of times. I am so happy to have made a sweet friend like her from blogging! Thanks Dawn!

The card is 3-1/4" by 6-1/2" and will fit into the small open end envelopes from SU. I really like the size and don't know why I don't make them more often.

The paper I used is chocolate chip and baja breeze and of course the yummy Parisian DS paper. The butterflies are from the same paper and cut with the butterfly die from SU. The sentiment is from the Level 1 Hostess set called "Sweet Little Sayings", I think. Thanks to Lois for that set!

I used the SU lace edge punch and added some big ol' white brads, non-SU, and some sticky pearls in the butterfly center. I used my nesties to cut the rectangle scallop and white rectangle piece.

Well, that is all for today, thanks so mch for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!
