Thanks For Being So Sweet!

Happy Friday! Today I'm sharing a card I made for a few challenges. I have had this paper and matching rub-ons from Hambly Screen Prints for a while and finally got to use them!
I used the sketch for the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge this week:
I think it came out cute,but my photography is another matter! No matter how hard I tried, somehow the pictures for this card just would not come out nice!I think I'm going to have to buy Photoshop to get some decent photo editing.
Here is a close up of the details:

See the bling candy?

I am also entering this card in the following challenges:
Stampin' Royalty 86 (bring on the bling)
Pile It On (sweet treats)

Thank you for visiting today and have a great weekend!

I used the Card Patterns Sketch for this week and the color inspiration is from The Playdate Cafe
 Here is close up of the sentiment:

Butterfly Dreams for a C.A.S.E.

Happy Sunday everyone! I'd like to share a card I made for the Case Study Challenge this week. We have to case a card by design team Member Chupa. I have to say that she is one of my favorite card makers and browsing her blog is a treat! Here is my card:
Here is Chupa's ( I hope you don't mind me reposting your pic)

I left off the puff ball ribbon because all I have is black. I couldn't get to my burlap stash since it is buried in a closet, so I used some burlap like ribbon. This was a fun challenge and I hope You hop over there to take a look at all of the gorgeous creations at the Case Study Blog.

Thanks for visiting today!
