Pretty Pink Flowers

You know, if I'd craft earlier in the day, I wouldn't have to stay up so late to share my post with you.  I sometimes schedule my posts ahead of time but haven't been doing that lately.  I kind of like just shooting from the hip when I write.  You just never know what I'm going to say.

Hope every Mom out there has had a great day.  I've heard from my three sons so I'm a happy one.  Now that they all live out West, those phone calls they make are so very important to me.

Anyway, here's the card I made for a couple of challenges.  I combined the CAS(E) this Sketch Challenge sketch with the theme challenge over at the Retro Rubber Challenge to make this birthday card.  The stamp set I used is Butterfly Basics from Stampin' Up!  It was introduced in the 2015 Occasions Catalog.


Stamp Set:  Butterfly Basics (2015); Inks:  StazOn Black; Stampin' Write Markers:  Certainly Celery, Pink Pirouette, Pretty In Pink, Wild Wasabi; Cardstock:  Whisper White Thick, Shimmery White; Patterned Paper:  Adorbs Paper Pad (My Mind's Eye); Other:  Sequins, Golden Sunset Glitter Drops (Nuvo)

The sketch I used is from the CAS(E) this Sketch Challenge.  For all the challenge details and to share your project, click the image below.
