A special sketch!

Hi stampers!  I have a very special sketch for you today!  Why so special?  Well, because it's from the Create With Connie & Mary Occasions Mini 2012 Edition!  I'm a guest designer for them this go-round and each Saturday they have a special sketch for members only!  How fun!  You can play along and enter if you head over there right now and sign up!  Not only do you get special sketches and challenges but over 30 fabulous and exclusive projects....including MINE.  And I worked long and hard on that puppy and it turned out so cute! Go on, you KNOW you want to see it:-)

Anyway, this week's challenge was this sketch:

And this is my card:

Stampin' Supplies:
Stamps:  Fresh vintage (SAB), You're a gem
Paper:  Very vanilla, calypso coral, peach parfait (smooth & textured), pool party, everyday enchantment (SAB)
Ink:  Versamark, pool party, peach parfait, calypso coral
Accessories:  Clear embossing powder, basic pearls & rhinestones, itty bitty punch pack, dotted scallop border punch, adorning accents edgelits & embossing folders

I know, I know....I used the Everyday Enchantment DSP again BUT at least I focused on a different pattern this time, hehe!  To make the butterfly a bit special I used textured DSP and embossed over that.  I really love the look of heat embossing over textured card stock and I love the way my butterfly turned out! I also added the little flowers for just a POP of calypso coral.

Hope you had a great weekend!  And if you're a Create with Connie & Mary subscriber, make sure to play along in the sketch this week!  And if you're not then head on over and sign up!

Happy stamping!
