Playing along with some challenges

Hi there!

I thought I would procrastinate a little from my long 'to do' list and my housework and make a few cards......

This first card I created for 'Freshly Made Sketches" sketch number 30.  Here is the sketch...

And this is the card I created.....

I wasn't really sure what kind of card I wanted to create, but when I came across this glittery paper in my stash (sorry I have no idea where it is from), I decided to create a wedding or anniversary card.

 A punched vellum butterfly adds a soft and romantic touch.

 I used some organdy ribbon from CTMH to create this little ruffle.  And added a string of beads that I have had kicking around for quite some time now (maybe 10 years, yikes).  I really loved that I was able to use up things from my stash for this card, too!

Thank you for stopping by!
