I used this week's CAS(E) this Sketch and a stamp from A Round of Cocktails for my focal image. To get the bottle look, I inked with Avery Elle Conch Shell and then inked lightly (focusing on one edge) with Avery Elle Truffle Ink ... then I clear-embossed to create the look of *glass*.
This morning I got up early to venture to Iowa City for my last big farmer's market of the year. I took along Flat Stanley (or Flat Aaron as I called him, since he came from my nephew Aaron) for the adventure.
It was the perfect cool morning for driving with the sun room open and tunes blaring ... and I got to watch a gorgeous sunrise on my trip.
After the market (where I picked-up sweet corn, apples, and freshly baked goodies), I stopped at the Michael's store in Coralville, which always seems to have different things than I find at the Cedar Rapids store.
The sketch layout was perfect for featuring the lovely butterfly paper ... for the circle, I used a Tree Sticker filled with more butterflies & hearts (picking-up the hearts in the background on the inspiration design).
The rest of the design is stickers ... border, flowers & sentiment. I hoipe this bright cheery card will make the recipient smile.

This week at Jingle Belles we're going Digital ... asking you to create a holiday card with at least one digital element (there are links in the challenge post for some freebies).
I actually have quite a stash of digital elements that I've collected over the years ... but as with my non-digital crafting supplies, sometimes I'm better at collecting than actually using. As I wandered through my digitalgalleries, I found some fun holiday papers and elements from Echo Park, so that's what I used for my design.
I printed my card front & then added a rub-on sentiment (which I managed to place just enough off-center to bother me ... so I corrected the balance with some pearls). I finished with a wrap of red ribbon tied in a holiday bow.
We hope you'll break out some of your digital stash ... or maybe even try something new.
