2S4Y Ultimate Card Showdown!

It's finally here...the 2 Sketches 4 You 1st Annual Ultimate Card Showdown! They are giving away TONS of fabulous prizes, but that's not what I'm most excited about--I can't wait to see all the EYE CANDY everyone's going to create!

This week's sketch is from the talented Laura. I used lots of my favorite things on this card--the colors, yummy satin ribbon, a new Maya Road journaling card, a butterfly, my Swiss Dots folder, my Martha Stewart scalloped dot punch, polka dots, and pearls. Now, I probably have no chance in hell of actually advancing in this competition, but hey, at least I love my card.

Paper: Basic Black, PTI Raspberry Fizz & white, PTI dp
Accessories: Martha Stewart classic butterfly punch & scalloped dot punch, Cuttlebug Swiss Dots, Maya Road journaling card, PTI ribbon, pearls (Kaisercraft)
