Hello Everyone!! I hope everyone has a great weekend. We are camping right now and I am not home so I am sure I am having a good time!! Now that the hecticness of packing is over, it is time to sit back relax and let Scott do all the cooking!! Hee! Hee! One of my very favorite parts of camping is that Scott helps with the cooking!!
If you have not yet seen the post for the Inspirational Blog Prize I am offering, click here. I want you all to have a chance to win!

Today I would like to share a card I made for Wednesday's SC227 sketch challenge this past Wednesday. It took me minimal time to make but I really like how it turned out!

I like to play around with the stiches on the sewing machine once in a while and this is one of the stiches I came up with! I love how it frames the image. This was such a fun sketch!! The stamps are from Happy Harmony and Thoughts and Prayers. The pink dp for the butterfly and the back narrow panel is Bella Birds. I dry embossed the background with Swiss Dots and used my favorite EK Success punch on the border of my image panel.

What do you think?

Card Recipe:

stamps: Happy Harmony, Thoughts and Prayers

Paper: Bella Birds, White and pink piroette CS

Accessories: Offray pink ribbon, Hodgepodge hardware, sewing machine, swiss dots embossing folder, pretty in pink and sage shadow ink for image, EK Success Border Punch.

Thanks for stopping by again today and for your comments. I so appreciate your comments. If you do stop by, please leave a comment so I can return the favor and visit your blog upon my return! Have a great rest of the weekend!
