We are back from our summer break.  Our first challenge after the break is a sketch. Nina is the hostess. It was a hard sketch for me and I just took it as a guide. I definitely didn’t follow it 100%

I started out by stamping an image from The Craft’s Meow’s Lovely Label 18 in Jet Black Archival Ink on a piece of Echo Park Springtime paper. It was cut and embossed with the 2nd largest Label 18 Nestabilities Nestabilities die. A piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock was cut and embossed with the 3rd smallest of the Standard Circle (lg) Nestabilities dies. It was first stamped with the center of the same Lovely Label 18 die. Next the die was placed back on the cardstock circle and part of the image from Butterfly Kisses was stamped in the center.

Another piece of EP Springtime paper was cut and embossed with the third largest of Card Creator Matte B die. The edges were sanded before it was stitched to a slightly bigger piece of black cardstock. Both layers were adhered to piece of white cardstock, cut and embossed with the largest Card Creator Polka Dot die.

A piece of Springtime paper and a piece of white cardstock were cut and embossed with two  Nested Lacey Pennant dies. The patterned paper was sanded before part of a sentiment from Butterfly kisses was stamped on both. They were adhered next to the image layer, which had been adhered to the left hand side of the Card Creator layers with dimesional adhesive. Part of a Fancy Waves! Border Bling was adhered underneath the patterned paper pennant.

The butterfly of the same set was stamped in Dandelion Memento Ink was on white cardstock, cut out and topped with a button. The butterfly was adhered to the image layer on the right hand side.  Stardust Stickles was added over the dandelion and the butterfly wings.

I was too lazy to cut a card base with the largest Polka dot die, so I made my card base out of a 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ piece of white cardstock, folded in half. I added another layer of Springtime paper over the card base, measuring by 4″ x 5 1/4″.

I hope you have time to create a card for the challenge! I am so excited we are back. And check out my fellow challenge members gorgeous creations!

Have a wonderful Sunday! Hugs and smiles
