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.
The flower theme is from the Retro Rubber Challenge. For all the challenge details and to share your project, click the image below.
