Happy Hump Day Peeps!!!

Today I am sharing a card made with Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge! You know I love Mercy and I certainly love her sketches, week after week she supplies us with incredible sketches and amazing inspiration from her design team!

I can not stop playing with this amazing designer paper from SU, Georgia Peach. It is retired, I purchased a pack from the clearance rack, and I wonder why I never had gotten it before now! Great colors, some of my fave, regal rose, old olive, so saffron, pretty in pink and of course whisper white!

My base is white and I followed that with regal rose and then the DS paper. I used some rick rack I had in my stash, and BTW it is almost a perfect match to the regal rose. The stamp set I used for the flower image is from the "Close as a Memory" stamp set. I used markers in regal rose, so saffron and old olive to color directly onto the stamp and then stamped the image onto the card stock. I matted the main image with regal rose and then pierced all round the panel.

OK, I did vary the sketch just a bit, I put the circle element to the bottom of the main panel, the sketch had it at the top. It just worked better for my stamped image at the bottom, I hadn't intended to do that when I started but it just worked out that way. The sentiment comes from the fun little set "Hello Again" stamp set. I stamped it with regal rose onto the white and matted with old olive and then a scallop circle of regal rose. I added two so saffron butterflies to the card along with silver pearls.

Thank you so very much for stopping by today and HAPPY STAMPING!!!!!
