SCS Sketch Challenge and more ...

As promised, I've been in the Crafting Cave creating!!  
I haven't played the Sketch Challenge #275 over on SCS for a very long time and decided to play today. 

This adorable "Teacup Chihuahua" can be purchased at the *Wink *Wink Ink Store and the matting was created using Nestabilities Labels 10.  
Recipe for this card:
Stamps:  Wink Wink Ink Digi, Wordsworth
Papers:  Pixie Press dp, Pink Pirouette, Whisper White
Inks:  Versafine Black
Accessories:  Detail clear ep, Nestabilties Labels 10, Nestabilities Ribbon Tags, Making Memories brads, Prima flowers, Offray satin ribbon, Prismacolor markers, Fiskars swivel craft knife, Creative Memories black round tip marker for edging
While downloading some vintage images from the internet, I came across this beautiful, springy, Easter image over on the Clearly Vintage site.  After a little cropping to remove the Easter sentiment, I printed 6 images and created this adorable "Just A Note" set.
(If I ever reference a vintage site and forget to link it ... please click on my "Vintage Creations & Link" page of my blog ... under my blog header for that link information.)

The base cards for this set are SU very vanilla cardstock and the background designer paper is from Colorbok.  The main image has been matted using Goldenrod cardstock and the ribbon is Organza from JoAnn's.  The front "Just a Note" sentiment is by Wordsworth.
For the inside of this card set I have simply used goldenrod cardstock, border punched using the Stampin' Up lace punch.  The butterfly & sentiment are from Inkadinkado and inked with Versafine Black ink.  

This entire set took me less than 45 minutes to complete and will be a wonderful gift when the occasion arises.  Thanks for stopping by today!  Hope to see you back her tomorrow for the Raise The Bar Challenge.
