I'm so excited to be participating in my first cardabilities card sketch reveal as a new DT member. :) :)

Here is Karan's middle of the month sketch #29~ Here is my interpretation ~

I started with a Bazzill white base and used Little Yellow Bicycle {Elizabeth Park} and echo park {springtime} pps. I had this yellow ruffle in my stash from long ago. It matches these pps perfectly, so I stitched a piece down. Also from my stash - the Heidi Grace heart stick pins - so sweet and irresistable (and found for a dollar at Big Lots). :) I cut the label from the LYB pp and layered the EP "thank you" sticker w/some zig zag stitching. Pink sorbet twine from the Twinery was tied around the piece, topping with FP yellow button.

If you look closely, you can see that I added two Hambly acrylic butterflies - punched from a Martha Stewart butterfly punch. (I didn't know if I would get a perfectly punched butterfly using acrylic - and was pleasantly surprised when it worked.) I also finished the inside of this pretty springtime card.

A wonderful prize is being offered by Sparkle Creations!!!

There are some big, fun changes going on at cardabilities!!! Karan is launching a gallery! If you participate in this card challenge, you could score a guest DT spot! Fun, right?? :) Hope to see you there!!!

As always, thanks so much for coming by my blog. I so appreciate your support and comments! hugs, patti
