Sweet Sunday on a Sweet Monday!

I had some crafty time today so I spent it wisely and created a card for Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch #49! It was SUCH a fun sketch, but I fear I took many liberties with it! I didn't mean to, but once I decided on this dp, I simply couldn't cut it up any smaller! Do you blame me? It's from the Porcelain paper pad by Basic Grey!
The cardstock base is Rustic White by PTI (srsly peeps, Rustic White and Rustic Cream are so wonderful...I've traded regular white and vanilla in for these colors:) and the green piece is Mellow Moss by SU! I stamped the butterfly (SU! single) in Sweet Blush and then cut it out, poured on the Heat and Stick powder (SU!) and then added some Martha Stewart glitter! YUM-O! I love this butterfly:) The frame and sentiment stamps are from the wonderful "Birdie Inspiration" kit by Unity! The background stamp on the card base is the Vintage wheel by SU! I rolled it on my Old Paper distress ink (Ranger). The ribbon is PTI, Apron Lace punch is by Fiskars, and the gorgeous white pearls are by Kaiser Krafts!

Well, I got my shabby chic itch out and I feel MUCH better:) Hope you have a WONDERFUL Monday (I know, long shot, but I'm an optimist!)

Amber, this is beautiful! LOVE that butterfly! And no, I don't blame you one bit for not wanting to cut that DP!

I just got my PTI order~Aqua Mist, Plum Pudding, and Terracotta Tile paper, ribbon, buttons and ink! Thanks for giving me the craving. :) Hope I get some time to play with all of it over Christmas!

Hope you're staying warm in the balmy 65 degree air. We got 15" of snow yesterday, and the temp will reach a high of 22 today!

Stay warm!
