Sketch Card

I am so happy to be stamping with bright, colorful springy stamps and papers again. Because we're still in snow up to our shins here. It is slowly melting finally though.

This card uses the Lizzie Anne Designs sketch challenge for this week, posted by Jen. Be sure to link your card in that thread if you play along. We'd all love to see it.

My card base is two scalloped circles (cut with nesties). I layered some strips of Garden Variety papers by Basic Grey and the green strip on top and finished it off with that oh-so-fun flower from the new March Mix, Lucky You. The two card bases are connected with that gold brad. It goes through the butterfly, then both circles, so that they swing open. Get it?

What's In It?
Stamps: Lucky You (Lizzie Anne Designs March 2010 Monthly Mix)
Paper: marigold morning, celery, glorious green (SU), white, Basic Grey Garden Variety
Ink: black (memento), glorious green
Other: Martha Stewart classic butterfly punch, Copic markers, brad, circle and oval nestabilities dies

Any hockey fans out there catch the USA-Canada olympic game last night? Woot! But I fell asleep and missed half of a very awesome game. Oh well. I'm thinking they'll be meeting up again, eh?

it's so good to have you back Bethany, and with such exciting news too! I was wondering if that was the reason you were taking time off. So wonderful! You deserve it. I am looking forward to hearing more about you and the little cherub!
