2S4Y46 - Hope Your Day Is Fabulous

Hi everyone! Hope you had a great weekend! :) We're just maxin' and relaxin' here at the Pulvirenti household today.

I have some fun news to share today! I was invited to join the 2 Sketches 4 You design team! :) I am *so excited* to be a part of their team, and am really looking forward to working with everyone. Thank you so much to Laura and Kazan for this fabulous opportunity!! :)

This card was created for today's 2 Sketches 4 You #46 Challenge... Our sponsor this week is InStyle Stamps, and I used the Butterfly digital image on today's card. Want to play along with us? You have until Saturday, February 2oth at Midnight MDT to enter for your chance to win some awesome goodies. Head on over to the 2 Sketches 4 You blog for all the deets!

  • Add green ribbon to gray and pink layers, then adhere to card base with pop dots.
  • Stamp sentiment in gray ink on white strip of CS, then adhere to card base with pop dots.
  • Print out two butterfly images (one large, one small), color with Copics, add highlights with white gel pen, cut them out, then add Crystal Effects to the wings.
  • Once dry, adhere to card base with pop dots.
