I was putting things away and rearranging the other day when I rediscovered my Queen Bee paper pad by Pink Paislee. Boy, does this collection ever call my name! I just love the modern elegance of the colors and the trendy patterns. Today's card is my sample for Jen's Sketch For You To Try. Check out the sketch:

I started out by stamping three different damask patterns (using Fanciful Flourishes by Flourishes) in black ink onto some of the more monochromatic patterns in the Queen Bee collection. I punched out 1 3/8" squares, arranged them into a vertical strip, then trimmed to fit my card front. The punched border along the vertical strip was punched with the Martha Stewart Optic Dots punch set.
Next, I added some Pink Paislee pleated twill for the horizontal strip and secured each end with a black button. The circle focal image panel is cut with Spellbinders dies. The butterfly is stamped, clear embossed, trimmed out, and adorned with Kaiser black adhesive pearls (the black ones are out of stock currently). Last, I added the sentiment circle, which was stamped with one of the sentiments in the Fanciful Flourishes set.
Have a super weekend!
