Happy Birthday, From Me To You

Have you missed our Stella Says Sketch challenges?! You've probably noticed that we're only doing one Stella Says Sketch challenge per month, during the summer months, instead of the usual two (Biweekly)< to give the DT a slight break.  Don't worry though, you still get one a month to play along in and we'll return to our normal Stella Says Sketch challenge schedule, once the summer is behind us.  But, for now, enjoy having an entire month to play along in our sketch challenge at Catch The Bug. As always, our lovely Jodie, from Bugaboo Stamps is giving away digi prize packages to some lucky winners - So be sure you come over to Catch The Bug and play along with us! You don't want to miss out on your chance to win!

I have a birthday card to show you, today. My card uses the image, Block - For You From Me, from Bugaboo Stamps, colored with Promarkers. All papers are from my stash.  The flowers are by Prima and are also from my stash.  I've used the word window and modern label punches to punch my sentiment. Gold gemstones have been added to the flowers to make blingy flowered centers.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

You Give Me Butterflies

Good Morning!

My apologies on this post being updated late.  We've had storms all night and my internet connection has been atrocious! Phew! Let's hope it stays up long enough, this time, for me to finish the post.

Today I have this cute new butterfly card to show you.  I love how this one turned out.  I used an image from Shelly's Images.  This is something new, for me.  I wanted to try a black and white card, with pops of color in the image.  I think it turned out beautiful! What do you think? I love butterflies and they always remind me of summer.

The papers are from my stash.  I used black pearls to accent two corner.  Sparkle and shine were added by using two think pieces of white glittery ribbon.  The black butterfly finishes it off with just the right touch.
