SSSC104....Heartfelt Thanks

GOOD MORNING PEEPS!!! It's Sunday which means it is time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Sample

This is the fabulous sketch Karen has for us this week:

I pulled out another SAB set for this card, this set is called Bliss, and I think it is fabulous! I love the big flourish and the butterfly it is so pretty!

I used basic black for my card base and I followed it with some riding hood red and some of the First Edition Speciality Designer Series Paper, this paper is very cool, it is lighter weight and looks like a vintage encyclopedia. The pack has ALOT of paper in it, 24 double sided sheets!!! I embossed this piece with the square lattice EF.

The main layer is more of the First Edition Paper and I stamped the flourish from the "Bliss" set directly onto the paper with black stazon. I stamped the butterfly from that set onto some scrap very vanilla with riding hood red and then cut it out. I added it to the main panel with some mono liquid glue, just gluing the center so I could pull up the wings a bit.

I added some black satin ribbon across the bottom, scrunching it a bit as I went across. The sentiment on here comes from the Sweetheart stamp set and I added an antique brad to the sentiment circle. I then added some sticky rhinestones to the butterfly and to the main panel.

I hope you can find some time to play along with us this week, I would love to see what you come up with, create a card or scrapbook page with this sketch and then go to Karen's blog and link up your project for all of us to see.
