"Every Moment" card by Melissa Bell
Supply List - Patterned Paper: My Mind's Eye; Cardstock Stickers: My Mind's Eye; Ink: ColorBox Chalk Ink and Inkadinkado; Pearls: Queen & Co.; Floss: DMC; Other: White Cardstock

When I first saw this sketch butterflies came to mind. I LOVE butterflies. :) I originally was going to use my punches but when I saw these cardstock stickers by My Mind's Eye I knew that I wanted to use them on this card. Plus it was a good excuse to buy some new goodies.

I stayed pretty true to this sketch. I followed the measurements pretty closely since I just loved how it looked! My main variation is that I used butterflies instead of hearts. I am definitely going to have to use this sketch again. There are so many possibilities!

"Merry Xmas" card by Jill Sarginson
Supplies Used - Cardstock: Bazzill Basics; Patterned Paper: The Robin's Nest; Tools: Creative Memories corner rounder; Ink: Vibrance: Letters: Jenni Bowlin; Pen: Zig Writer; Adhesives: Scrapbook Adhesives foam dots

I completely stuck to the sketch here. To make the embellishments pop, I pop-dotted them. I inked all the papers so there was some contrast between all the coordinating papers.
