STAMPIN' CONNECTION SKETCH CHALLENGE - ELEMENTS OF STYLE

Good Monday morning all!  It's the start of another busy week here for me - my mom and sister will arrive this Thursday and then our Housewarming will be on Saturday so I have TONS of stuff to get done between now and then! But first, I wanted to share with you the sketch for this week at Stampin' Connection - I am the sketch host for this week so I can share both my card AND the sketch with you!  First, the card! I chose to keep this very simple since I kept the sketch fairly simple.  I used Elements of Style stamp set because I just love the flower images in this set, I love to color them! I also did not use any patterned paper but chose instead to emboss the base card using the Square Lattice Folder.  I love how it really dresses up the whole card! My embellishments were fairly simple too - I used some of the really pretty Daffodil satin ribbon and some of the buttons from the Brights collection and I just love how they look together! This card was quick and easy to pull together, but still looks pretty!  My favorite kind of card, lol! If you are a demonstrator, please make sure to come over to the Stampin' Connection site and play along with the sketch - just remember to tag your card with SCCSC27 so we can all come and check them out!
 If you are not a demo, but still want to play along, I am posting the sketch here and would love if you would leave a comment to let me know that you made a card so I can come over and check it out!  Thanks so much for stopping by, I love that you do! I am off now to start my day of a million errands, but I hope to have some time this afternoon to do some blog surfing of my own - I love to see what you are all up to! And, if you are interested in any of the products used to make this card, you can order them from my online store! The item numbers are listed below in the recipe! Until tomorrow, Happy Stampin'!

The cards look great Alex. I'm glad that the open house went well! I'm sorry I missed it. I'm thinking I might have to scraplift one or two of those designs from you :D!

Just wanted to let you know that I'm now following you from SC.

I really like your card colors. I didn't know that SC had challenges. How to I find them?
