Endless Thanks!

Hello!  Welcome to this week's card for Create with Connie and Mary... a fun and easy sketch challenge!  I love how all the challenge Team's cards are so very different; that's what makes stamping so interesting... everyone approaches it from their own perspective (and the stamps they have to use, of course.)

This is my first use of the new Pretty Petals Designer Paper Stack and I must say that I look forward to using more of these lovely patterns!  This one is in the new In Color Mint Macaron, which is one of my most favorite of the new colors!

The card base is Mint Macaron overlaid with Very Vanilla then the Mint DSP print.  The four elements are composed of 1" Punches, 7/8" Scallop Circle Punches, Papillion Potpourri small butterflies punched out with the Bitty Butterfly Punch and a Very Vintage Button tied with Crushed Curry Baker's Twine.

The sentiment is from the Endless Thanks set.  The banner is stamped in Basic Gray and the word is stamped with Wisteria Wonder.  (I was surprised that there isn't much discernable difference in the way they look!)  A little flower and Pearl highlight the banner.

Stamps:  Endless Thanks, Papillion Potpourri
Ink:  Daffodil Delight, Wisteria Wonder, Basic Gray
Paper:  Pretty Petals DSP Stack; Lost Lagoon, Very Vanilla, Daffodil Delight, Wisteria Wonder
Accessories/Tools:  Paper Snips, 7/8" Scallop Circle Punch, 1" Circle Punch, Bitty Butterfly Punch, flower punch from Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack, Basic Pearl, Crushed Curry Baker's Twine, Blender Pen.

Here is the fun sketch from Create with Connie and Mary for this week:

Oh my, Margaret, this card is so lovely! I really like the Mint Macaron paired with Daffodil Delight and Wisteria Wonder! It's so summery and pretty! I'm also loving the fits so nicely with the butterflies!

Fresh and fun! Love the way the butterflies look like they are fluttering through the vines.

This is just lovely Margaret; I am swooning over that piece of DSP and I love your chosen colour combo - so soft and pretty.
