So Glad

TGIF Peeps! It is the first day of May, the months are zipping by quickly, funny how it seems that way as we get older!

Today's card is my submission for this weeks sketch challenge on the Stamps and Smiles Blog.

I started with a base of tangerine tango, trying to make the most of my in colors paper and DS paper, they will be retiring in just two short months.

I followed up with a layer of so saffron and then some tangerine DS paper from the now retired Haiku pack. The middle piece is also from that same pack.

The main panel is the grass from the Inspired by Nature set stamped with old olive onto whisper white cardstock. I pierced all around the edges of this piece with my piercing tool and mat pack. I added some so saffron ribbon and then attached my center piece with some pop dots. The sentiment is from the hostess set, retired, Best Yet.

I finished it off with a tangerine butterfly punched with my Martha Stewart butterfly punch with some sticky pearls in the center and three so saffron brads in the top corner.

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