Popping the Cork!



No, I'm not hitting the bottle...I'm actually cutting some new cork sheets that I recently bought at Mike's. I like the added texture it gives to cards. This is a card for Karen Giron's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge. I hope the curves of the ric-rac border qualify for the circle elements in the sketch. The butterfly is a sticker from Martha. The base CS is a pre-embossed card...also found at Mike's. This came together quickly and was a good way to wind down after a work shift. I was glad it was quiet so I could browse through the new SU cattie. Though I didn't get excited about too many of the stamp sets, I did love the new DP and some of the accessories!

STAMPS: Whimsical Words (SU)
PAPER: Devonshire Collection by Kaisercraft
INK: Memento Rich Cocoa
ACCESSORIES: Cork sheets (Mike's), Butterfly sticker (MS), Ric-rac Die by MFT, CB, Nesties, Sponge

You are creating some wonderful butterflies, Wanda :D Lovely card using this sketch. I'm not sure I'll play based on the bottom circles, but we'll see. Lucky you to be able to get the new catty already. Looking forward to seeing mine when it arrives -- it's that darn border thing again, I'm sure LOL!

Oh how pretty - the cork background really adds a lot of interest and I like the use of the ric rac at the bottom to represent the circles in the original sketch.
