so sketchy saturday

I am spending the afternoon with 2 of my DDs, making cards. They are making daddy b'day cards and I am playing with some challenges.

Using K&Co. Sera Sera specialty papers (which are beautiful but very difficult to really use!) some misc wide satin ribbon, charms from Mike's, MS butterfly stamp, Fiskars apron punch, string pearls, and CTMH stamps, I put on my thinking cap to come up with this beautiful card. I completed 5 challenges with this one card!

Card Patterns #36 - use the sketch.
365 Cards Day 224- Two Techniques to create a foreground and background. First you see the orangish paper, then the gold punched DP on top, 3D the image and added butterflies with the wings crimped to look like in flight
Crazy 4 Challenges #6- create a card with a thankful theme. I am blessed/thankful to have so many wonderful friends in my life to help through the good times and the bad
Cute Card Thursday- use a charm (joy brass charm)
365 Cards Day 223- stamp a shadow. I chose to stamp 2nd generation flowers onto my sentiment to allow it to stand out and to give dimension. I also created shadow by popping the sentiment and bending the wings of butterflies.

Thanks for checking in today! Have a great one!
