Thinking of You-SC Card

I am definitely feeling better. The situation has been handled and things are settling down now. Thank you for your well wishes...ya'll are THE best!

I spent a better portion of my afternoon yesterday playing around at Paper Craft Planet. If you haven't been there, you should check it out. It's a new online spot for paper crafters and there are all sorts of fun things going on over there. If you do stop by and decide to join the fun, tell them I sent you! Then add me as 'your friend' and join a few groups, take on a few challenges and maybe you will win a prize or two! And while you're there, stop by my page.

While I was visiting the Paper Craft Planet or PCP, I joined the sketch challenge. Every Saturday a new sketch will be posted and any one can play along. My card was for last weeks challenge. I haven't used all CTMH products on a project in a while-shame on me!-so I also challenged myself to do that on this card. I did get a little help from SU! but the majority of the products are Close to my Heart.

I think the card explains itself. Click on the image to enlarge it. Oh! I did ink the edges of the DP with chocolate ink and I gave the butterfly a light dusting of dazzling diamonds. The main focal image is popped up with pop dots. And the dark colored CS is CTMH cocoa, NOT black. It looks so much better in real life. I've also been noticing that a lot of you are decorating the inside of your cards, so I decided to do that with this card as well. I really like how it turned out. This paper pack is so pretty and it features our newest colors~Juniper, Sorbet and Tulip.

Supplies-All CTMH unless noted. Cardstock and papers:Perfect Day Level 2 paper pack. Stamps:Gracious Greetings. Celebrate Life. Ink:Chocolate, Sorbet. Ribbon:Chocolate organdy. Other:Dazzling Diamonds, Scallop Edge punch, Ticket Corner punch(SU!). Copper brads(Making Memories).

Thanks for visiting me today. Don't forget about PCP. Check it out!
