Magazine Monday

I tried to get this card up last night but I needed to wait for the glass effects to dry.

The card I chose this week came from a Go-To Sketch design in the current issue of Paper Crafts Magazine and fit a challenge on the All Occasion Card Challenge (AOCC) at SCS. I seldom take time to combine challenges but this one just seemed to fall into place.

As you can see in the pic, the Sketch LO was originally set vertical. Becky Cowley was one of 2 designers to flip it. Where I have ribbon, she used SU patterned papers. But I knew it was perfect for the AOCC12E challenge to use a minimum of 3 pieces of ribbon. I used 10 plus a piece of vintage lace.

The ribbons were from SU seam binding and from my ribbon drawers. The background paper is from Paper Studio called Mirabella Floral. I LOVE this paper any time I want to create something vintage. You might recall I used it on one of the Altered Books I did a couple months ago. The die cut and the butterfly are from a kit I got as part of a Quacker Secret Sister swap from Maggie last winter. It's from Hot off the Press (division of Paper Pizazz) I accented the butterfly with glass effects.

Hmmm just noticed my business name is on the cards. Need to remember to change that :-)


  1. Very pretty card. Great colors and papers. I love the butterfly!!

  2. Kelly, thanks so much for stopping by my blog! I am glad I could inspire you! Your card is gorgeous! I love how you added the little butterfly over the top of the ribbons, it adds the perfect touch!
