SC244 Thanks Friend...

Thank goodness it's the week-end! I am truly ready for it this week - how about all of you??? :) I have finally gotten around to playing this week's SCS sketch challenge. I tried, I really did, to make this a horizontal card like the sketch, but it just wouldn't work - so here you have it, my vertical take on the sketch!

I started with a base of white, layered with Kiwi Kiss (pierced) and Pink Pirouette (embossed with Swiss Dots). The next panel is white layered with some Bella Rose DSP and tied with some white half inch satin ribbon. The bow was made with my Bow Easy!!! The main panel has been cut using the brand new Label 8 Nestabilities in Kiwi Kiss and then layered using the Lg Petite Ovals in white. On the wite layer I stamped the flower from SU's Friends 24-7 in Jet Black Stazon and coloured with Old Olive and Pretty in Pink and a blender pen and then pierced around the oval with my paper piercer and mat pack. The sentiment is from SU's Three Little Words and then I added a Martha Stewart punched Royal Butterfly in Pink Pirouette (YES Aussies - you can now buy these here at Spotlight!!! WOOHOO!!!). I finished off by adding some Snow Kaisercraft Pearls to the butterfly body and a couple to the corners of the Label.
