In His Time...SSS205

What a glorious Saturday! I had an amazing day yesterday. My coworkers treated me to a fabulous birthday celebration. I will be the big 4-0 on Sunday and they wanted to help me celebrate. I had a decorated cubicle and an awesome birthday cake. I will share photos on Sunday.

Now to The Sweet Stop Sketch challenge for this week. At first glance I was a bit perplexed about what to do with this one. It is not a traditional type sketch, but boy was it a fun sketch to work with. I used my newly arrived set New Creature. I love the gorgeous butterflies in this set. And I was able to use both for this sketch. I also picked up a new Poppies embossing folder last week. It was perfect for the card base. I used my Silhouette to cute out the pieces used for the sentiment. Added some lace and ribbon and adhesive backed pearls. I love how it turned out.

I hope you will join us a play along this week. Please jump over to The Sweet Stop Sketch challenge blog for all the challenge details and to see what the rest of the Sugar Babies created with the sketch this week.

You will also want to head over to the Sweet N Sassy Stamps store. Korin turned 35 on Friday and she is offering 35% off of a large selection of stamps. Plus a ton of awesome new sets were released on Friday. I can't wait to get my order. :) You can also play along with some SNSS Release challenges over at SplitCoastStampers, in the SNSS Company Forum.

Oh, so pretty Melissa. What a great take on the sketch. Those butterflies are so pretty and the textures background is awesome. The strip of lace is perfect.
