Opportunities Won


It's my turn to host the Sketch Challenge over on Splitcoaststampers, and this week I've created a CAS sample to go with my sketch.  I used a soon-to-be released stamp set from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps (you're getting a sneaky peekie today) and maybe, just maybe, some coordinating dies too!

My sentiment is stamped on white paper tape - the cheapie kind you get in the first aid aisle at the store.  I'm a big fan of white on white, so I left it perfectly plain.  I wanted to re-create the feel of the lovely Butterfly Flourish image, only bigger, so I used an embossed swirl  and placed the butterflies where I wanted them.

Hope you get a chance to come play along with the Sketch Challenge this week!
