SC220... Happy Friday!!

Hope you are enjoying your Friday!! The weather here has NOT been very nice for the first day of spring. We had snow, sleet and rain... CRAZY!!

I finally had a chance to make a card and decided to work with the SC220 (Sketch Challenge on SCS). I love this DP and decided to also use 2 sets from Sale-A-Bration. Most of this card is SU! except the MS branch and butterfly punches, CuttleBug die "Vintage" and flat pearls.

Click on the photos for a closer look! I added Yellow Stickles to the butterfly for more bling! And you can see the layering of the flower.

Guess what? I wanted to share this exciting news.... I WON MY FIRST EVER "BLOG CANDY" from Ann at Creative Antics. I received the American Crafts ribbon in the mail today... I LOVE happy mail!! :) Thanks so much again Ann!!!!

Well done on winning your first blog candy! American Crafts ribbon is gorgeous.

I love your card, the colours work so well together. I especially like the way you have done the stamped flourish and the die cut one. I must look out for that Cuttlebug die, it's lovely. I like the way you combine stamping with die cutting, just my kind of thing! Your butterfly looks all spangly, it's really pretty :o)
