Good morning! I guess I'm on a roll with these blog challenges :} It's fun, and it "wakes up" my creativity for the day. For today's project, I'm using the Sketch Challenge CCMC186 from the "Create with Connie and Mary" blog. I already knew I wanted to play some more with my Sale-A-Bration goodies, and this card sketch was perfect.
I wanted to do something a little different for my focal point, so I used a chipboard butterfly from the Merry Medley package of On Board Chipboard. When I cover chipboard with paper, I like to use the Anywhere Gluestick. I feel like it's the easiest way to get good "coverage." I also like to use the sanding block and skinny little files from the Distressing Essentials Kit to smooth the edges.
I wanted just a little texture for the bottom section of DSP. So after I stamped the greeting in Poppy Parade ink, I dry embossed the DSP using the Houndstooth Embossing Folder and my Big Shot.
I hope you find a few moments today to let your creativity flow... it always brightens my day when I get a chance to make something pretty! :}
