Addicted to Stamps....

While visiting my friend Carla Suto I saw where she had used a sketch from the challenge blog Addicted to Stamps . I immediately fell hard for this fun sketch and started thinking about how I could use it.

I must say that I was happy with the way it turned out. I just kept playing with the papers and after die cutting the focal piece, I stamped the three butterflies and used foam dots to pop them up on the label.
My sentiment is from the same set and I created my own banner.
I used a floral stamp to make my flowers. After stamping and fussy cutting I used foam and glue dots to adhere the layers together.

Using more of the papers and a large die cut I created a space for that special message.

I can't wait to see what the next sketch will be! If you have some extra time
I am sure you will want to try this great challenge site.
The deadline is January 20th.

Hi Patti!! What a gorgeous card you made with that fun sketch!! This is my absolute favorite paper pad... I have it and only used it twice ~ I think it's so pretty I just want to keep hanging on to it, lol!

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and for the awesome comment!! I didn't intend on drawing a "self-portrait" but seeing it side by side with my picture? Hmmm... might be a tad similar, but good thing about drawing, I can make my nose smaller, lips and eyes bigger... whatever I want... instant plastic surgery for FREE!!! HAHAHAHAHA!!!
