Celebrate YOU!

The butterfly card that I created last Friday was the perfect card for the color combination for Loonie Stamper's Challenge but I'm having so much fun combining both sketch and color combination from Clean and Simple Stamping and Loonie Stamper's Challenge, so why not continue doing them?!

I used the biggest square scallop nesties on Rose Red card stock to create the base of the card. The patterned paper is from Stampin' Up Bella Rose Designer Series Paper, punched using 1 1/4" square punch and layered with with Chocolate Chip card stock, using scallop square punch and layered it with Regal Rose and Chocolate Chip card stock. The chipboard flower is covered with Rose Red classic ink and drizzle it with dazzling diamond, sentiment is from Stampin' Up, Many Sayings. Finished card is measured 7 1/2" x 4" folded in half.

Several people have been asking me about our first home/condo, at this time, we're still waiting. My realtor said we're just waiting for some documents from the seller but other than that, we're 99.5% done except for the major papers that needs to be signed... oh joy!
