This card may have turned out even better than planned.  I really like it but I wanted to do the stitching in white.  The only white thread I had was too thick to fit through the needle on my machine so this was my next choice.  Funny thing is this is the only time I ever sew!  The one exception would be girl scout patches and last year I found it easier to hot glue them on.  It was the only thing I found to work and I tried everything!  Anyway, back to my card…I used my glitter mist again (fun!), just for the letter K.  The butterflies came with glitter on them already.  I also folded the wings of the butterflies for an even more 3D look which really adds to the card.  They were easy to fold once I attached the pearls.

I decided with the busy patterned paper on this card that I didn’t need any embellishments.  I’m glad to have a masculine card done.  This was the first time I have used glitter mist and what fun!!  The color I used was not near as bright as I expected but I like how fast it dries.  I definately need to experiment more!

Products used: CTMH Good Times paper and Chocolate cardstock, Basic Grey chipboard monogram, Tattered Angels blue skies glitter mist.

Challenges:
Midnight Madness Week #15 – sketch

As promised, here is what I have done using the Everyday Celebration guide.  I used the same cutting diagrams and instructions to make these cards but I changed it up by using different paper (Perfect Day) and a different stamp set (Life’s Creation).  I used sorbet ribbon and chocolate brads as my embellishments.  You can see that the possibilities are endless and if you like this you really need to check out the new CTMH Card Confidence Program: Wishes which includes 3 card workshops similar to this one and many more card sketches and ideas!

And again, here are the cards individually for a closer look:
