When I saw Chupa's sketch, I knew I was going to use this butterfly! I also decided to go for this swirl from Hero Arts, it always looks good in neutral colors. I stamped it over some Background Text Style from PTI. Instead of actually putting some crocheted lace on my card, I stamped my favorite stamp from WMS Victorian Frippery. I love the combination of brown and gray. It's so elegant! The sentiment stamp is also from PTI. I just love sentiments that combine script with printed text. Beautiful! I hope you like my card tonight. I'll see you all again tomorrow! Thanks for stopping by! :)

Three birds with one stone
Hi bloggies! I have a confession to make. I have been falling asleep after dinner almost all the time now! Hee! I'm just soo tired after work a lot. I haven't been joining a lot of challenges like I want to. I made a card tonight for 3 challenges. I decided to combine the challenges instead and make full use of my posting tonight. First up, Flourishes: Bring Back Beautiful - Time for Neutral Beauty. I saw Heather's post today for Bring Back Beautiful. It was so gorgeous that I said to myself I wasn't missing this challenge. Secondly, I saw Lisa Johnson's video over at Papertrey Ink's Make it Monday: Distressing Edges. I thought it would be a perfect technique for the look I was trying to go for with my card. And last but certainly not the least, our dear Chupa has a sketch challenge up at her blog! I tell you, this lady is Wonder Woman! I can barely count how many DT spots she's currently holding, aside from ALL the challenges she joins PER day, and she has CASE Study Challenge and NOW Sketchbook Saturday Challenge! Whew! What a busy, busy lady!!! :) Here's a little sneak peak of my card...
