SketchFrenzyFriday050611 & SUO Challenge 18

I went ALL OUT on this one, and I hope I didn't overdo the embellishments, but I just had SO much fun with this combo challenge! The StampinUpOnly challenge was to use Butterflies, and the SFF sketch went perfectly with it...

Here's my card...

I wanted this card to be white and bright! I used Whisper White for the base and the large scallop die. Pacific Point, run through the crimper, for my main layer. The butterflies are Melon Mambo, Pumpkin Pie and Definitely Daffodil, all run through the Beautiful Wings Embosslits on CS and DSP. On the top Melon butterfly, I used a glue pen in the debossed lines and filled them with the silver glitter. The Office Accoutrements flower was stamped in Pumpkin Pie, and has embellishments from the Ice Cream Parlor sticker page. The leaves (from the Build a Flower #2 Sizzlits), and the sentiment strip (stamped with the Create a Cupcake birthday greeting, in Craft Whisper White, and clear embossed) are Pear Pizzaz. Which fortunately blended really well with the Old Olive in the Ice Cream Parlor ribbon and embellishments, and the Kiwi Kiss in the Hooray Designer Hardware. Last but not least, a Pacific Point corduroy button with an Ice Cream Parlor Daffodil button sewn on top, and some rhinestones... Phew! I think it'll be awhile before I'll be willing to give this one away ;) I want it to live on my display board for awhile first!


  1. What a lovely bright card. I agree - you may want to enjoy it a bit before giving it away! Thanks for joining us at SUO Challenges.
