Smiles - Sweet Sketch Wednesday

Here is a card I created for a Close to my Heart Swap group that I am in called The Humble Artists. I normally would have posted this to my CTMH Blog, but because the recipients have not yet received their cards, I can't do that. But, I'm pretty sure that none of them subscribe to this blog so I'm taking a chance since I need to post it for the Sweet Sketch Wednesday Challenge, whose sketch I used for it.

We have a recipe that we must follow in creating our card and we had to use 6 different stamps. That was the hard part. This card is slightly different then the ones I created for the swap. I added a butterfly to mine, which is a Digi Stamp from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps. All of the other stamps are from a Stamp Set Called Smiles from Close to My Heart. I actually used seven different stamps from this set. The swap cards did not have stitching, which was done by hand with matching embroidery floss.

The papers used are from a new paper pack from CTMH, called Splendor. The Goldrush Grosgrain ribbon and brad is also from CTMH.
