TAMARA'S SKETCH CHALLENGE

Happy Thursday all! It is time for another fabulous sketch from Tamara and I was so happy that I could participate...I have been missing these! This week's was fun because it has some different elements to it that you could really play with! I enjoyed working with this one and I am sure this is one I will pull out and use again! I used one of my new sets from the Spring Occasions Mini - I am loving that little catty, there are soooo many fabulous things in there! Remember, there are items in the catty that you can order now if you are a customer AND they count towards Sale-A-Bration freebies....pretty cool!! This set is called Great Friend and I love the butterfly and the soft frame so I used both! I actually cut out my butterflies after stamping them on Whisper White and then added some adhesive just to the center so they could have the 3d effect. And, the ribbon I used is the new yummy Whisper White satin ribbon also available in the new mini. Ack - so pretty! Please take a minute to pop on over to Tamara's site and check out what the other DT gals did, they are all so amazing, you will love everything they have to show you! And, remember, if you do the sketch, upload to the site so we can all have a chance to see what you do! Thanks for stopping by today and check back tomorrow - I have something really fun to share tomorrow for the Stamp Something Challenge! Have a wonderful day!
