{cardabilities sketch #30!}

It's time for a new sketch from Karan Gerber at cardabilities!!! {Isn't this a beauty?}

A little reminder - cardabilities now has a gallery for uploading your creations!

Here is my interpretation of sketch #30.

For my card I used Little Yellow Bicycle pp, journaling card & the butterfly was punched from a LYB journaling ticket. The ticket has months and days printed on it - I punched the butterfly making sure to get the "month of May and the day of 8". This will be the Mother's Day card I give to my mom. :) :)

I machine zig zag stitched around the scalloped edge and then stitched down the journaling dies as well. The "xoxo" are AC thickers. The orange flower w/green stem is a Prima iron on by Donna Downey. I had never used one of these before - it was easy! The backing on the flower transfer peeled off easily and it worked like a charm. :)

Hope you get a chance to play with sketch #30! Thanks for stopping by my blog.

Have a great day!!! hugs, patti
