Well, I think I'm on a roll!!!  It has been SO good to create with no agenda!!!  Just wonderful!  This my second post in two days--that, my friends, is a good thing.  :)

Today I'm playing along in the CardPatterns: Sketch 125 challenge.  Here is the sketch we were to base our cards off of:

And here is my take on it:
I just love these colors!  I used Echo Park papers from their "For the Record" line.  This paper stack has the most fun colors that work so well together!  Funny enough, as trends in color and styles are usually followed by the majority of paper crafting companies, Crate Paper's "Portrait" line matches perfectly in color with EP's line---sooooooo, that is where those beautiful fabric brads came from.  Aren't they just gorgeous?

One of my favorite things to do is peruse through all my Layers of Color stamps and just see what inspires me at the time (just looking at LOC images gives me so much inspiration!).  This time around, I was drawn by this beautiful butterfly image from Layers of Color's popular "Butterfly Collector."  I stamped it in Memento Rich Cocoa ink then colored it with Copic markers.  I love how well you can blend with these markers!

The "thank you" sentiment came from LOC's "Sent with Love" stamp set.  I taped off the "kindly" part on the bottom of the stamp as I didn't have room for it.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Blessings to you and your families,
Janice :)
