There's Only One You!


Surprise!  I have a wonderful surprise post for y'all, I was chosen as a guest designer for Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge this week for my Polka Dot Kindness card that was chosen as a winner.  I am always so surprised when my cards are picked, there are so many talented crafters out there, that it is always an honor!

Check out this fabulous sketch, grab your supplies and head on over to link up your creation!


I started to build my card around this fabulous flower, it is super simple to do, I used the new creped filter paper, die cut four of the second to largest floral frames framelits, crumpled them up, and layered them up.  Add a center of round crimped circles in calypso coral, and a "cupcake" holder from the pop up posies kit.  A butterfly from the Collage Curios stamp set adds a perfect touch.


I love this sentiment from Vintage Verses stamp set.  I trimmed and punched out a center and layered it on some fancy trim from the artisan embellishment kit.


I SOOO wanted to sew on this card, but alas my new sewing machine is acting up, so I am off to the store for another one.  This new Tea for Two DSP, has wonderful spring colors.


This is a wonderful CAS sketch, so there is no reason not to start creating, I can't wait to see what you come up with!  Thanks so much for stopping by, I hope you were inspired, enjoy!
