Thankful Butterflies - Stamping 411 Sketch Challenge

Good evening.  This is definately my favorite time of year, I love the warm weather and all the trees and flowers starting to bloom.  Since spring is all around us it's only fitting that it's the inspiration for this weeks Stamping 411 challenge.  I was initially thrown by this sketch but then I figured it was a great opportunity to showcase multiple prints from the Greenhouse Gala DSP, which has quickly become one of my favorite paper packs. 

There's nothing overly challenging about this card so I figured I would just highlight some of the key items:  I used the Vintage Wallpaper Texture Embossing Folder for the background, 5/8" Early Espresso Grosgrain Ribbon, Beautiful Butterflies Embosslet die for the butterfly cutouts, basic rhinestones for accents on the butterflies, and the Perfect Punches stamp set for the greeting.

Here's the sketch, pretty cool!  I love how bright and cheery this card is, it definately screams spring!

Just a reminder that Friday is PMS (Pizza, Movies, Stamps) night starting at 7:30.  Please let me know know if you'll be joining us, it's sure to be a lot of fun!

Hope you enjoy and have a great week!
