best wishes to Vicki Dutcher!

welcome Monday! sure hate to see weekend end....

had fun creating this card with my new set from Marks Finest Paper - called "Butterflies, Dianthus and Flourishes" and entering it in their challenge this week. It's Vicki's last challenge since she has decided to step down as their DT Coordinator after a year! She has done an incredible job! It was exciting watching that challenge grow to being a "super site" a year later...congrats Vicki!

I created this card using the requirements for the card challenge this week at Joan's Gardens:
use pink/lime, lattice, leaves and butterflies!

Cardstock from SU and scrap dp, plus dp from Basic Grey, colored with Copics RV02, RV95, G07, G14, and V06, gorgeous lace from stash with lime green ribbon underneath, butterflies stamped with Memento Black onto scrap of same dp, MS lattice punch, hat pin made from my pin from my Easter corsage, mini pearls, and stickles!! Ticket made by stamping sentiment onto kraft cs and punching corners with SU corner punch then matted onto lime cs to match card base.

Have a blessed day...give somebody a hug (-:
Oh and come join a new site - Speedy TV! can pop over there from the badge on my sidebar

hugs,

This is gorgeous Linda! The sparkle you've used is subtle, but just right. I'll have to check out that store. I always enjoyed Faith's posts when I was a regular at Split Coast.
