Over at Platinum Scraps!! Check it all out here. This week's card challenge was selected by Croppin Cassie from www.pagemaps.com.

The Sketch

And here is my take on the challenge:

I used scraps from my classes at Reflections — during my crop on Friday I finished my layouts from the classes and separated out all the extra scraps, embellies, and full sheets of paper from my bags and bags of loot. This entire card is from the scraps! Okay, well the butterfles and pink CS and alpha stickers aren't but the papers are from the scraps from Relfections ;)

And I broke out my sewing machine. I am impatient and always sew fast but when we were taking Debee Campos' class at Reflections, Nan was sewing really slow and her sewing came out great! So I tried to sew slowly on this card and darn it, it came out better. Guess a little patience goes along way ;) I punched loads of butterflies while I was watched a movie a few weeks back and have them in little tubs by color in my scrap room so I added those as the flowers from the sketch. Easy peasy embellies ;)

Now go on over to Platinum Scraps to see the other super fabulous card creations inspired by the sketch!

Happy Card Making!
