Butterfly Greetings PCCCSC #152

It was a chilly start to the day here in Melbourne being a mere 2 degrees Celsius outside at 7am this morning but it is a small price to pay for the sunny day that followed. I don't mind the frosty Winter mornings so much if it means we have a sunny day. It's when it is freezing ALL DAY that it seems really miserable.

And being Wednesday, it is time for another sketch from The Paper Craft Crew. The Team have created a great variety of cards to inspire you and there is even some BLOG CANDY on offer for those living within the United States to win too!!

So without further ado, here is the Sketch:

Being a CAS girl at heart, I really enjoyed playing with this sketch :-) 

Whilst I was in the middle of making this card I had one of those fabulous Brown Boxes that signifies a Stampin Up order arrive which meant I had a difficult decision to make  -  continue making the card I had in mind or choose some new goodies to complete it with. Oh, it wasn't easy -  there is always an excitement around new products isn't there :-) In the end, I made a compromise - I continued with the idea I had started with and added the brand new "hello" from the Greeting Thinlits instead of a stamped greeting - so dilemma over lol! And instead of using a strip of DSP for the background as per the sketch, this time I used the single  broken line image from the Butterfly Basics set to stamp three lines for a similar effect. And you too, can flip over or leave out certain parts of the sketch - just as long as the sketch can be identified in your creation. Another element, the three dots on the side I have changed slightly too: I have used scattered rhinestones instead of lining them up exactly evenly.. it's all about using the sketch to spark your creativity :-)

Card stock: Whisper White, Watermelon Wonder, Tip Top Taupe
Inks: Pool Party, Blushing Bride, Tip Top Taupe
Stamps: Butterfly Basics, Gorgeous Grunge
Accessories: Big Shot, Butterfly Thinlits, Greetings Thinlits, Blossom Accents, Silver Metallic Thread, Basic Rhinestones

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you can take a moment to pop on over to The Paper Craft Crew and see the great variety of cards the Team have made to inspire you this week and don't forget there is some Blog Candy on offer (by random draw) for those who enter from the United States too so I look forward to seeing your creations in the Gallery this week :-)

Happy stamping until next time,

  1. Cute cute card! Just pinned it. But just wanted to let you know I had a little chuckle... My eyes are starting to droop (I take meds for migraines), and I read the first part of your past as "2 degrees in calculus"!! Haha had to do a double take... I know we demonstrators come from all walks of life, so it could've been true! :)
