Sunday Afternoon and a New Challenge Blog

Hello hello!!! How's your weekend been so far? Mine has been productive once again. Actually got into my scrap room and played, a lot! :) I have a workshop coming up on Friday and I got all 3 of my projects prepped and ready to go. They turned out sooooo cute!! I will definitely post pictures of them soon. But in the mean time, I found a new challenge blog that has their first challenge going on right now. It's called Black Tie Friday. They have some talented ladies that have posted some cute projects for their first challenge. I missed not playing along in challenges since I've become a Stampin' Up demonstrator, but only because I don't have more hours in a day...see, that work thing just gets in the way!! lol ;) So, for the first challenge it's the 3 B's, black base, black ribbon, and a butterfly. And it seems that I had a polka dot thing going on too. lol But I really like how it turned out.

I thought the card needed a pop of color, so I added the blue butterfly and ink.

Here's the inside of the card. I know most people don't show the inside, but I like to share it when I have a chance. Well, I thank you for stopping by and hope you have a great evening, and when you have a chance, stop by Black Tie Friday and link up your creation!
