Tuesday Morning Sketches #404

Good Morning! Thank you for stopping by.  The sketch is up at Tuesday Morning Sketches and it's a good one.  It's basic and simple and truly a blank canvas.  We're also sponsoring - there's a super cute die up for grabs.

My card was actually inspired by one I saw on Pinterest.  That one uses some really great washi tapes but I wanted to use paper.  I also got to use a die that I picked up probably 2 years ago on clearance for 97 cents.

This a great notecard that is easily massed produced.  I made 3 of them.  Two for my Card Angel project and one for another card group.  Hopefully you can see in the card below that I also made one as a shaker card using tulle.  This technique I saw on a Jennifer McGuire video and was pretty excited to see another use for this tulle I have in my closet.

These were so quick that I almost just kept going!  Please be sure to join us at the TMS blog and leave some love for the team.

I will be around as much as possible this week but my son graduates High School on Friday so I have family coming in and they're here until Thursday next week which is also the day I fly out to Chicago area to attend my oldest son's graduation from Navy Basic training.  So I'll be around as I can but honestly, I know I'll be scarce.

I love the paper you used, it shows up the negative butterfly beautifully, a Beautiful card. LOVE the others too.
Isn't it funny that sales items become favourites.
