Evening all! Don't fall off your chair but I made a card tonight just for fun!! Not a "have to" stamped one!! Feels good to be back on the creative train!! I've joined the Create with Connie & Mary Occasions Edition so I decided to play with their first weekly challenge. Here is my creation

based on this sketch

I started out thinking hearts and ended up nowhere near that!! I did my Sketch Frenzy card before this one and it is hearts, but that didn't work out for this one. Card base is Early Espresso with a Calypso Coral DSP print for the background. This DSP is the FREE pack you can earn during SAB!! Across the background is a Calypso Coral strip of card stock that was punched with the Lace Ribbon border punch, and a strip of Early Espresso grosgrain ribbon. On the rounded rectangle (?? not sure what to call it) I stamped the flower from Inspired by Nature. It was inked with Calypso Coral, Lucky Limeade & Early Espresso using sponge daubers. At the bottom is a Scallop Trim Border in Calypso Coral. I added a butterfly near the top, cut with the Beautiful Wings embosslit, also from Calypso Coral. Pearls for the butterfly "body" are the final accent. The saying, from Inspired by Nature, was stamped near the bottom in Early Espresso. 

Thanks for stopping by!!

Love how you used the Lace Ribbon Border for the 'dsp' element and that set will always be a favorite of mine! The butterfly was the perfect added touch! Thanks for playing along with the Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Occasions Edition 2012 Challenge!

So pretty...love the butterfly, too! Very clever to use the border punch as the extra layer! Thanks for playing along with the Saturday Occasions 2012 Challenge on Create with Connie and Mary!
