Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 192

Good morning!!  It's time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge! Here is the deal: make a card with this layout and use the InLinkz button down at the very end of this post to enter your card. The links will close in two weeks, next Friday at 10 PM (Mountain Time). Be sure to link directly to the blog post or gallery image which features your card. You may post a picture of the sketch on your blog, but please save the image to your computer first. Use the keyword SSSC192 if you plan to post your card in an online gallery.

Since it's Teaser Week for My Favorite Things, I'm playing with some new goodies - MPD Winged Beauties stamps and MPD Fancy Butterflies Die-namics.

This butterfly set is GORGEOUS!  I think I might have squealed with delight, like a little girl, when I got the Die-namics set in the mail.  I LOVE the detail and it makes a quick and beautiful embellishment to any card.  I cut out a Pierced Rectangle STAX Die-namics in Smooth White Card Stock and then stamped the sentiment from MPD Winged Beauties in Black Licorice Ink.  The butterfly is cut from Black Licorice and Tangy Orange Card Stock using a set from the new MPD Fancy Butterflies Die-namics.  I added a small Black Licorice Button in the center and then used Washi Patterns and Washi Tape Die-namics for the strips of paper and chevron accent underneath.

Be sure to visit the Sweet Sunday Stampers - They have more eye candy to get your creativity flowing.
Here are the MFT products I used today - all of the new products will be available for purchase on September 3rd at 10 PM Eastern.
