Clean & Simple 100th Sketch Challenge!!!

Happy TGIF everyone!!!

I'm so thrilled to show off my card for the 100th Clean & Simple Sketch Challenge!!! Natasha was so sweet and invited me to this aweome event and I hope you have time to celebrate with us!?! Lots of fabulous stampers have made samples too and you can find all the links on the bottom of my post!!!

Here is the *Celebration* Sketch....


and here is my take on it.....



I used the colors from the CC280 ~ Regal Rose, Old Olive and Peach Parfait. The Dessert Option was to *pop it up* and I used that idea as well!!! Couldn't help myself...I had to add a few more Dirty Girl Challenges as well....the first one is for the DTGD10cindy_haffner ~ using Dies and Punches, the butterfly idea is from the DTGD10flowergal36 and the scoring fits the DTGD10AmberDawn01 Challenge.

I hope you don't get tired of me using the fab PTI Butterfly Dreams Set?!? I just love this this Set :) ....the leaf image is also from a PTI Set called Turning a New Leaf. The butterflies were inked in Memento Black and colored with Copic Markers ~ R000, R00, R32, YR01, YR02. I added a few Silver Pearls in each center. The border was created with the Large Scallop Die also from PTI. The card was finished off with some piercing, some Black/White Gingham Ribbon, matching Button and some Black Scrapper's Floss. Oh yeah.....did you noticed my little punched topper??? I saw this idea on a few blogs now, but always loved how my blogging buddy Dawn Burnworth uses it!!! The border I used is from the SU Scallop Trim Punch!!!

Okay guys...now it's time to check out all the other ladies that made a special card for the event!!!.

There is that PTI leaf set again LOL! However, it will soon be in my hot little hands! Did well at my LSS garage sale and it was at the top of my list. Now I just have to wait for it to arrive, which won't be easy LOL!

LOVE what you did with the sketch. Great scoring, piercing and the gingham ribbon is perfect.
