Lacy Butterfly Wishes

This week I'm concentrating on getting my Design Team cards made for January's Christmas Card Challenges but I'll still be playing along in some of my favorite challenges.  My Christmas cards go live every week on Sunday so I'll have plenty of time to share other projects with you.

I'm in a Valentine's Day card frenzy getting cards ready to post to my Etsy shop.  I've been kind of neglecting it lately.  I love the new Stacked with Love Designer Series Paper Stack from Stampin' Up!®  One side has great colors for Valentine's Day and the other side is black and white with a Valentine theme.  I'll be sharing the black and white side in the days and weeks to come, too.  It's one of the new papers featured in the 2015 Occasions Catalog that comes out on January 6th.  If you'd like a copy, email me with your address (US addresses only) and I'll get one out to you.

Today's card was made using the great sketch from Retro Sketches.  I love and enjoy their sketches.  They really challenge me to step out of my box since I tend to be a bit clean and simple in my designs with few layers.  I'm beginning to realize that I like lots of layers.  :-)

Stamp Set:  Butterfly Basics; Inks:  Real Red, Pistachio Pudding, Tuxedo Black Memento; Card Stock:  Stacked with Love Designer Series Paper Stack, Strawberry Slush, Whisper White; Accessories & Tools:  Butterflies Thinlits Dies, 5/8" Whisper White Ribbon (from a Paper Pumpkin Kit), Pearls Basic Jewels, Glue Dots, Dimensionals, SNAIL Adhesive
