It's Thursday again, and we have a very special Sketch and Product Challenge for you! This is a sketch that really works well for Easter cards, so if you have any last-minute Easter cards to make, here you go! I often like to use an entire sheet of cardstock in one sitting, so I created two cards using many of the same materials using this sketch.
I used the new Basic Grey Green at Heart papers for these cards. These colors are so fresh, and the patterns are so fun! This is surely a favorite of mine. :) The card base is PTI's Berry Sorbet, and the trim at the bottom is Spring Moss. The Spring Moss is punched using the SU Scallop Border punch.
For the first card, I used my Egg Die to achieve the intended egg shape on this sketch. I stamped a flower spray from the Unity Bevy of Butterflies set. The butterfly, attached with a pop-up dot, is from the same set. I stamped the "friendship" sentiment, from the March Unity Store Kit, Adventures in Happiness, using an SU label punch (can't remember what this one is called!). The card is embellished with a little Lavender glitter and SPLIT PEA RHINESTONES! (Our focus!)
The second card features a large butterfly from the same Bevy of Butterflies stamp set, also glittered in lavender. I stamped part of a sentiment from the PTI Egg Hunt set so that this card can be used for ANYTHING!! The rhinestones featured on the sketch are Wine in color, and did you notice the Split Pea RHINESTONE ANTENNAE?!?!? I am so very proud of that! Love the detail that adds! :) (Yep, patting myself on the back!)
**Use the sketch above and try to incorporate your favorite RHINESTONES!!
**Key word for SCS upload is LLPC044.
**Post a comment with a link to your card right here on the challenge post by Sunday, April 4, at midnight (or before winner is drawn Monday).

Your cards are gorgeous, Mandy! I love the pretty butterflies and all the rhinestones! Here's my card:
GREAT sketch, but I had to turn my image a little, and I hope pearls are okay instead of rhinestones? If not, that's okay. I really had fun using your sketch anyway. Thanks so much for the challenge! Here is my submission! Hugs, Kelly
This was so much fun! I love the sketch and I love the bling. Thanks for the fun idea. Cindy
