Hello there friend!

Good Morning!
Happy Valentine's Day!
I hope you all had a great week!
My first card is for today's Our Creative Corner Challenge. This month's hostess is Laurie and she has provided us with an awesome sketch this week!
I couldn't wait to dig into my new SU! goodies and create a SU! only card for today.
The Marigold Morning cardstock is retired though :( BUT it does go well with the DP, doesn't it? I actually think it goes better than Summer Sun which is listed as a colour in it.
Anyway, stop by the OCC blog to see what the girls have created with this fun sketch!
Stamps: Cheep Talk; Cardstock: Choc chip, Morning Marigold, Pacific Point, WW and Good Morning DP; Inks: Black, Pacific Point, Choc Chip, Pumpkin Pie, Marigold Morning; Accessories: Circle Punches, Mat Pack and Paper Piercer, Photo Corner Punch, Dimensionals, Eyelet Border Punch, Antique Brads
For Lauren's Saturday Sketch I decided to try something that I haven't done in a long time....Poppin' Pastels! I stamped the butterfly in Versamark and sponged on a few chalks then cut it out and popped it up on a dimensionals. The brads are actually a RAK from Lauren from last Valentine's Day!
Stamps: Simple Friendship, Cheep Talk; Cardstock: Kraft, Pretty in Pink, WW and Sweet Always DP; Inks: VersaMark, Pretty in Pink; Accessories: Pastels, Paper Piercer, Paper Snips, Flower Brads, Dimensionals
Pop on over to the Saturday Sketch Girl's Blogs to see what they created with this fun sketch!
Tamara Harder
Thanks for stopping by today!
Don't forget tomorrow I'll be back with a card for the challenge that Denise and I are doing....Racing Cards! Play along if you can!

Down - I love the way you addressed this challenge. The subtle piercing is the perfect contrast to the DP and bird. Just wonderful!

You're right, Marigold Morning goes GREAT with that paper! I still have a reeeeal little bit of MM left. Love that color.

Your dimensional butterfly is BEAUTIFUL!! Funny, I used Sweet Always on my post today too. :)

Kelly Lunceford said...

Wow, Dawn! These are both fantastic! I am seriously in love! I have been noticing myself, that many of the new DSP packs have great colors in them, but aren't necessarily *any* of the SU! colors! LOL! I am scratching my head! I love the Marigold Morning with this...I am going to have to remember that since I have this DSP! I have gobs of Marigold Morning Cardstock, too! Great job! I always love visiting your blog to see what you have been up to!

Jackie Pedro said...

Marigold Morning!! You're brilliant, Dawn!! I love how it matches that DP!! Your cards are darling! I just ordered the Simple Friendship (along with many other goodies) last night. Love how you used it here!

Happy Valentine's Day!!
