Embellish Magazine Color Challenge & Joanne's Sketch Plus Three Challenge!




Hi there everyone!  I have had such a CRAZY and BUSY week and there literally has been no time to sit and make anything!  I've been NEEDING to sit down and create, so after dinner tonight, I did just that!  It felt so good!  I hadn't stamped since Tuesday!  I rarely go that long.....but I digress...



Two things on my "Hope to do" list this week were to play with the Embellish Magazine Color Plus Butterflies Challenge and participate in Joanne Basile's Sketch Plus Three Challenge.  Well, for the sake of time, I combined the two!  I used a new set from Taylored Expressions (designed by Taylor herself), Garden Party Critters.  I used the colors from the Embellish Magazine challenge and for Joanne's Sketch Plus Three I used Kraft, Stitching, Gingham, Paper Piecing and Bling! (wow, I didn't realize I used 5!!)  I have the HARDEST time photographing Kraft cardstock....it always seems so gray!  I am very happy with how this card turned out!



That's all from me tonight!  I hope the remainder of your weekend is fantastic!  We are finally experiencing some beautiful weather!  YIPPEE!!
Paper:  Kraft, True Black, Spring Moss, Bitty Box and Bitty Dot DP
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories & Tools:  Classic Oval and Big Scallop Oval Nestabilities, Gingham Ribbon, EKSuccess Scallop Punch, Adhesive Gems (KaiserCraft), Sewing Machine, Foam Tape
