Paper Sweeties October Pre-Release Day 1!

Hi there!

I'd like to share with you the card I made for Paper Sweeties sneak peak day one!  I got out one of my favorite paper lines, MME, and came up with the little vintage card seen above.  The frame and sentiment was made using the stamp set Smile!  I fussy cut around the frame and used my blender pen to color in the tiny butterflies.  It's a sweet frame with wonderful sentiment that Debbie has designed this month.  The stamp set will be available on October 15th!

For the rest of the card I started with a cream card base and added layers of MME(The Sweet Thing) papers.  Borders with pearls were added.  To finish off the card I added a flower, twine, stick pins, and luscious Pink Bubblegum ribbon.   

Please don't forget the monthly challenge that is going on.  There is a new inspiration challenge photo to inspire you.  You can follow the colors and/or photo.  Just look at that little pumpkin.  Isn't she a doll!  Here's the photo...

So, please enter the challenge for you just might win a $20 gift certificate and be invited to be the guest designer for the following month!:-)

Ok, I thank you for dropping by today.  Please stop over at the Paper Sweeties blog for more awesome inspiration!  Take care, hugs!
