You Made My Day

Normally, a sketch challenge allows me to quickly create a card. However, Beate's sketch this weekend gave me SO much trouble! I stared at it all night long. The only idea I had was to use one of the stamps from the Stem Sayings set as the butterfly's trail. Other than that, I was stumped. I could not pick a color scheme or any dp that I liked. I couldn't even decide which stamp from this set I wanted to use.

This morning I remembered that I needed a thank you card for a friend. That helped me choose the stamp, and since her favorite colors are brown and pink, the color scheme finally fell into place.

Stamps: Stem Sayings (SU)
Paper: Chocolate Chip, Pink Pirouette, PTI white, Close to Cocoa dp, Berry Bliss dp
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Accessories: Martha Stewart butterfly punch, scallop edge punch, ribbon (PTI), pearl
