WSC Baja Birthday Celebrations

Good Saturday Morning Peeps!

Today's card is made with Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge. This week is her 100th sketch challenge! Awesome, I love her sketches and play as often as I can. Her blog is chocked full of wonderful inspiration! Thank You Beate!

I am again playing with retired colors and papers. I so wish baja would make a comeback. I love it soooooo!!!! My card is a 5 inch square of chocolate chip. I followed that with baja and then the DS paper is the retired Parisian Breeze Speciality Paper. The center square is chocolate chip and baja. I pierced around the edge of the middle square. I used the butterfly die to cut out my two butterflies out of the DS paper. I glued the two together, and then mounted them to the center with some dimensionals. I added three sticky pearls to the center of the butterfly.

The sentiment comes from the Upsy Daisy Set and is stamped onto whisper white with chocolate chip ink and punched out with the large oval punch and then matted with chocolate chip that was punched out with the scallop oval punch. I added a small silver clip in the top corner and tied some non SU white ribbon around it. I then added a sticky pearl to each corner.

Well, that is all for today, thanks so much for stopping by, be sure and come by tomorrow for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge card! Until then HAPPY STAMPING!!!

Oh Vicki,
This card is lovely. It took me a while to embrace Baja Breeze, but about the time I did, it was retired.
