Combining Challenges

Happy Friday! It's so nice to be able to stamp and actually post!!! Life got in the way last week and I was not able to do the wonderful sketch that Lisa came up with for Blogger's Challenge. So this week, I decided to combine last week's sketch with this week's color challenge (pink, brown, and white).

First off, I have to apologize for the photograph. Normally, my camera doesn't like green, but apparently, it doesn't like pink either...lol! This was the best shot that I could get...ugh! All of the supplies for this card are from Stampin' Up, unless otherwise noted. The base is Pretty in Pink. Then, I layered on a piece of retired, printed paper in Close to Cocoa. I added a couple of strips of faux stitching and the sentiment from the Priceless set to this layer as well. The butterflies were stamped in Pretty in Pink and Close to Cocoa. The pink patterned paper is layered onto a white layer that I punched some scallops onto. I tied some May Arts ribbon onto this layer to finish my card off.

There you have it...two Blogger's Challenges combined into one card! Just click on the Blogger's Challenge logo in my right sidebar to see what the other Ladies have been up to. Thanks so much for stopping by today...Toodles! :D

Kim,
This card is really lovely. I like the faux stitching. It adds a little something.

I miss seeing you and hope to bump into you at one of the meet up's this winter or other places.

Also, Sara Dorfman says 'hi.' We walk our dogs together every day and the other day we both mentioned how we miss seeing you!
