Beate Weekend Sketch #59

I just LOVED today's sketch from Beate. My card ended up totally different than I had imagined. I kept wanting to add some things, but my husband stopped me. LOL I used the Happiness Always Hostess set. The butterflies are stamped in Tangerine Tango and Chocolate Chip, with emerald rhinestones added to the body. I stamped the grass from the Inspired By Nature set on the background. For the sentiment, I inked up portions of the sentiment at a time and stamped it in order to fit on the circle. Make sure you stop by and see what Beate, Cambria, Jenn, Laurie, Lori, MaryJo and Sharon have created using this sketch! Thanks for stopping by today! Tomorrow is Savannah's birthday party, so I'll be running around putting the finishing touches on everything! Hope you have a wonderful weekend! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Happiness Always, Inspired by Nature (SU); Paper- Kiwi Kiss, Chocolate Chip (SU); Ink- Tangerine Tango, Kiwi Kiss, Chocolate Chip (SU); Accessories- paper piercer, 1 3/8" circle punch, scallop circle punch (SU), rhinestones, polka dot organdy ribbon (May Arts), Chocolate Chip marker; Finished card measures 4.25"x5.5"

Gorgeous card, Charmaine. I love your butterfly flight. I had so many ideas for this sketch in my head (cutting up an image, elegant/swirly or cute). I love what you picked to do.
Have a great weekend and a lot of fun with your big girls birthday party.
Hugs and smiles

Wow, wow, WOW! Can you believe I still don't own any Kiwi Kiss? It's killing me. Now I can just order online though. Much easier.
