Laura's Sketch 16

Yet another wonderful sketch this week from the talented Laura over at 2 Sketches 4 You. Make sure you head over there and check out the eye candy the DT has created this week. Gorgeous stuff!

I'm feeling those wintry, post-holiday blues, so I decided to go for a spring-y card. Plus it gave me an excuse to use my BasicGrey paper again (Have I mentioned how much I LOVE this paper?) and the MS butterfly punch hubby gave me for Christmas.

Stamps: Beautiful You (Verve)
Paper: PTI white, BasicGrey Urban Prairie dp
Ink: Basic Black
Accessories: Martha Stewart classic butterfly punch, corner rounder punch, rhinestones (Me & My Big Ideas), ribbon (Dollar Tree)
