Card Sketch #49

It's card sketch day at Sketches! {by Tamara}. This is my card for Card Sketch #49. Be sure to stop by the site to take a look at the amazing cards this week. Also, if you make a card using the sketch, be sure to link it back to the Sketches! site. YOU could be a future guest designer.


I used some cute Bo Bunny dotted pink paper that I received as a RAK or a prize (sorry, I can't remember who sent it to me). Both the dark pink shadow layer and the dotted paper card front were cut using Base Camp on my Cricut. It looks like a very large postage stamp. I added a chipboard swirl that I got from Wendy at ScrapCity. I painted it pink with my Making Memories paint. I stamped the two-step butterfly with Stampin' Up stamps. The "enjoy" stamp is a $1 acrylic Michael's stamp. I added a few rhinestones, and that was it! I'm pleased with the way this card turned out.

I hope you all have a wonderful day. I'm behind on blog hopping, but I'm sure that will be the case for most of the summer. Thanks for stopping by!
