Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #185

Happy Wednesday!  I hope you're having a great week so far!  We have been having such lovely spring weather!  We even heated up the pool on the weekend so the kids could take their first dip of the season!  They dusted off their golf clubs and hit the driving range too!  I think summer is here to stay at our house!

We have a great new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches courtesy of the incredibly talented Cindy Hall!  I love Cindy's cards!  They always make me smile!  Check out her blog and you won't be disappointed!

I realized that I hadn't tried out my new SU Butterfly Thinlits Dies!  I do love butterflies!  I wanted to keep the card pretty clean and simple.  I used the sentiment from the Butterfly Basics stamp set!  It seemed to fit perfectly in that little space!  I threw on some bling and I was done!!!

Cardstock: Whisper White, Basic Black, Silver
Stamps: Butterfly Basics
Ink: Black
Other: Butterfly Thinlits, Basic Rhinestones, Stitched Rectangles (Lil' Inkers), Dimensionals

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I hope you'll head over to the Freshly Made Sketches blog to check out the beautiful the cards the Design Team has created for you!  You will love them!

Have a fabulous day!
