A Sketch Challenge and More

In the next couple of weeks I am going to be joining a challenge team, the CCEE Stampers. To get my feet wet, I'll be doing the challenges but not as an official member. Today's challenge is a sketch drawn up by Frances Byrne, StampOwl on Splitcoaststampers.

I used a new set from Mark's Finest Papers, a Heinrich Company, called Love Remains, which will be released next week. The set includes both a full rose and a rosebud, a trio of leaves, and seven sentiments.

I also made a card for the SCS Ways to Use It challenge -- to use stickers on your card. I've recently realized that I could actually make CAS cards, something that came as a total surprise to me. One thing I like to add to a CAS card is the line frame around the edge of the card. My required stickers on this card are the butterflies -- from a sheet of Startform stickers. The rose is from the same soon-to-be-released set from Mark's Finest Papers, a Heinrich Company -- Love Remains.

I'm looking forward to playing with the CCEE stampers, a few of them who were on the Stampin' Bs with me for several years.
