Fab Friday Challenge...on a Saturday

Hello stampers!  Hope your weekend is going well.  It was a busy and fun Saturday for me.  I have been wanting to participate in the wonderful blog challenges from the Fab Friday blog.  I came across their blog challenge for the new year here and I knew I wanted to try it out.  The challenge for the new year is a sketch and the idea for my card came to me last night as I was getting ready to go to sleep, does that ever happen to you?  Anyhow, here is the sketch:

And since I have been liking the faux tearing technique, this is what I came up with:

I have a confession though, this is the FIRST time I inked up the Papillion Potpourri stamp set! I know, crazy.  But it worked out better because of the NEW Bitty Butterfly punch that coordinates with this stamp set.  Love items that coordinate.  The other NEW item on my card is the Needlepoint Border textured impressions embossing folder.  OMG, it is so cute and it comes with two folders!  Both the punch and the embossing are available in the Spring Catalog.   The sentiment is from the Loving Thoughts stamp set, available in the annual catalog.  I love the shimmer on the card!

Sorry this is a short post my friends.  It's getting late and my comfy bed is calling me so I can dream of more card creations.  Thanks again for stopping by.

Until next time.
