Enjoy Your Special Day {RS #2 and CR84FN #50}

Sunday, March 11, 2012


Hi!  I've got a card today for two challenges, a new and old favorite.  Retro Sketches is a new challenge blog that is only on it's second sketch.  Love the sketches so far!  The old favorite is CR84FN color challenge.  CR84FN is on its 50th challenge!  




I did it again!  I forgot to photograph the inside sentiment before attaching everything to the card front.  Inside the zipper it says, "Sending You Something Special." 


This is a beautiful frame stamp from the Pretty Peonies Anniversary Set from PTI.  I stamped the butterflies over the frame stamp in Berry Sorbet and then cut around the frame and butterflies to create the focal point for the card.  The pinkish butterflies are Berry Sorbet that have been "stamped off" once, but I am looking forward to the release of Sweet Blush ink!


Thanks for stopping by.
Hope you are enjoying your Sunday!
