Skipping Stones Design Sketch 63

Happy Tuesday, everyone!  First off...please don't miss my Lawn Fawn sneak peek of Lunar Lights, which is after this post.  Please scroll on down or click here to see that post as well!

I also have Skipping Stones Design Sketch 63 to share with you today, both my card and the sketch that I created for everyone.   Here is my card!
"Your Heart's Song...." supplies: 
Cardstock: Bazzill Basics (orange) 
Paper/Jewels: Glitz Design (Laced with Grace: polka, Stripe, Plaid)
Stamps: Skipping Stones Design (Heartsong set)
Ink: Clearsnap (Pigment: chestnut) & CTMH (Pigment: vanilla cream)
 Ribbon: Renaissance by Design
Corner Rounder: EKSuccess
Border Punch: Fiskars (Upper Crest)
Sandpaper
Instructions:  Fold orange cardstock in half to make card base.  Round the corners and sand the edges of a cream floral paper block.  Stamp the bird image directly to the front of the paper block, skewed to the right side.  Punch an upper crest border from dotted paper, and adhere to the left side of a striped paper strip.  Sand the edges of the entire piece, and adhere to the left side of the floral paper block.  Tie ribbon around the left side, and then adhere the entire block to the front of the card.  Stamp the butterfly to plaid paper, cut it out and accent with a strip of jewels.  Adhere the butterfly accent to the middle of the bow.  Stamp the sentiment to an orange cardstock flag, and then adhere it to the front, tucked underneath the bow.  Add 3 clear jewels underneath the sentiment to finish off the card.

Here is the sketch that I created for this week.  By the way- if you participate in the sketch challenge this week, you can win the brand new set that will be releasing this month called "Pumpkin Seed Sentiments"  We will be featuring the set next week, but head over to today's post to check the new set out!  And play along so you can win it!!
