Happy Tuesday!  I have two cards to share with you today!  The first card is for Week 2 of ODBD Shining the Light Challenge.  It's a sketch!  


I was in a purple mood!  Can you tell?  I am using ODBD Fancy Labels, Quote Collection 1 , and 2 Step Butterfly  stamp sets.  I combined Spellbinders Fancy Labels 17 die and  ODBD Custom Grunge Butterfly die.  


I stitched the background patterns, stamped the fancy frame, used the stamp a ma jig to line up perfectly the Helen Keller quote, and stamped with purple staz on the vellum layered butterfly, and topped it all off with a seam binding bow with a jumbo button with gold accenting.  I think this was one of the quickest cards I have ever made.


For my second card to share with you today, I am using some of the new SU In Colors. This card is for today's SCS Color Combo Challenge (CC386) "A Primrose Summer Breeze!" Check out the link to see what the dessert option is!

I am sneak peeking a new set from ODBD called Bookmarks-Prayers that have a custom Spellbinder's die set. I used two of the dies here. One for the actual bookmark and another of the bookmark dies as a cool slider clip to house a bookmark for easy slide in slide out bookmark gift giving. I used some embroidery floss to make the tassel for the bookmark. I added some hardware for a fun accent to the slider holder look. The smaller picture is the bookmark out of the slider.  

As always thanks so much for stopping by!
