{friend to friend} ~ JAI 4 & 2S4Y 45





I combined two fabulous challenges for my card today...Just Add Ink #4 Color Challenge using More Mustard, Rose Red, Sage Shadow & Kraft and Laura's Sketch #45 at 2 Sketches 4 You.



As you can see, I flipped Laura's sketch and created this all-occasion card just for that special friend. I must admit that I struggled a little with the color combination...so, I dug through some retired DSP and found some with More Mustard and Rose Red...and just went with it. The Butterfly Sizzlet just arrived in the mail yesterday and kept calling my name...isn't the little butterfly super cute? I love it...and Hannah was able to keep the other tiny butterflies that were punched at the same time:)





Stamps: Kind & Caring Thoughts, Teeny Tiny Wishes (sentiment)
Paper: Kraft, More Mustard, Very Vanilla CS, variety of retired DSP
Ink: Sage Shadow, Basic Black
Other: Big Shot, Butterflies Sizzlet, Sage Shadow 1/4" Grosgrain, Scallop Edge Punch, Fresh Favorites II buttons, Linen Thread, Rich Regals Buttons, Mini Glue Dots
