It's a Terrific Tuesday!

Happy Tuesday everyone! It's a cloudy day here again today. It's been such a wonderful Spring! The longer we get clouds, showers, and cool temperatures, the better it is! Those 110°+ days are just lurking around the corner waiting to attack! So, we savor these cool days! It's only in the 60s today. Love, love, love it!

I have a card to share with you today. It's for the current sketch challenge at Magnolia-licioushighlites. The sketch is the creation of the amazing Suzanne Dean. This is my take on that wonderful sketch. If you haven't seen it yet, here it is. Give it a try!



OK, now for my card. I think I should have made it 6 x 6. I made it 5 1/2 x 5 1/2. I could have used a bit more space.



I love this paper. I bought tons of it! I love the colors as well as the designs. The butterflies have been covered with glitter. You cannot see it in the photo, though. It adds just a highlight of sparkle.

This is the inside of the card (DAH!). I love the sentiment.



Well, folks, that's all she wrote. Thank you for stopping by. Tomorrow is hump day - so, it's all down hill from there!

Blessings,
Chris
