Just a quick CAS card for the Craft's Meow sketch challenge!

The bird cage in the "Fly Away" stamp set is one of my absolute favorites! It heat embosses so beautifully.

I added the stick pin with the little silver-blue and pink acrylic beads to add some bling,

I played a bit with the card shape by rounding the top INSIDE corner of the card base.

The scallop was made by cutting a section of the Spellbinders, Labels Six
three times and layering down the left side.  The butterflies were stamped, embossed, and supplemented with brown cardstock cut with a Fiskars punch.
The background is embossed with the Cuttlebug, "Wicker Weave" folder.
I like to keep a few "No Special Occasion" cards on hand.

Entered into challenge the challenge at
PaperPlay challenges (stamps with pins and pearls)

Time for a Skipping Stones Sketch again!

The Skipping Stones Designs sketch this week is :

 My take:

This is the first time I've chosen to work with these girly colors combined. The pink, lilac, lime, and cream are gorgeous!  I'm actually considering painting my scrapbook room these colors!  (Maybe won't include the Stickles glittery sparkle..hee hee...)

I have a friend waiting to hear on her second mammagram results.
Always so nerve racking. Perhaps this will give her a chuckle.

I used the SSD stamps from Bras Volume 1
and DCWV Chateau Lavender papers.

Thanks for letting me share today!
