Happy Tuesday!  School was out today and we will be out again tomorrow due to snow.   Actually, at this point, there is more ice than snow.   The weather man says a little more is expected later Wednesday.  We do not get a lot of snow here in eastern North Carolina.  Getting a few inches shuts everything down.  With that said, I did have  a few moments to get crafty today.  I am playing along with the ColourQ Challenge and Always Playing with Paper Challenge.  I went with the sketch.

For my card I am using Verve's  Petals and Wings, Better Together, Borderline,  and Making a Statement stamp sets along with Verve's Cut Above Curvy Bookplate and Wings & Petals die sets.   I die cut the frame and white embossed the frame and sentiment.  To add some extra depth I sponged versamark all over.  I die cut the butterfly and heat embossed in gold to comply with the color combo.  I stamped the fishtail strips using images from Better Together and Making a Statement.  I kept the card pretty CAS.  I love the blend of the bold colors with the all white background.  To complete the card I added a few gold sequins from Verve's Holiday Sequin Mix

As always thanks so much for stopping by!
