Love, Chocolate and PPC #22

Hello to all my crafting Peeps! I am trying to figure out where July is going? I had the pleasure of taking my crafting stuff out to Lori's and worked on a couple of challenges. I must say this one sure did have me confuzzled (is that a word? probably not *giggle*). The night before I had worked and reworked the color layout several times. Then Lori and I worked and reworked the colors a few more times. We finally decided I needed a new sketch idea and to use a little less of one color. Thanks Lori for helping me out of my crafting troubles and THANK YOU MEGAN at Picture Perfect Creations for really making me think outside of my box! It is a super great challenge and sure do hope you join us for PPC Color Combo #22.

Thanks to the girls at JUST US GIRLS this sketch is just awesome and really helped me design a fantastic card (well I think it is *hee hee*).
Here is my creation! The little butterflies I must say were not my idea, Lori looked at my card and said, I think you should add this and I said okay! She was right and it just helped make my other butterflies pop. Again thanks Lori, for your good crafting eye!

The punch used on the bottom is my mom's. She just got it used it once and then I begged her to let me use it on my card challenge for this week. Isn't she awesome!! It is a super punch and I just might have to get it for my collection. Other punches were Martha Stewarts as well and some spellbinders. The ink and Paper are all SU but the sentiment is from Verve Love's Flowers. Which could possibly be my new favorite.
I have not always had the new colors from SU but Lori is a SU REP and she let me use some (Thank you)!!
Thanks for stopping in and please stop in to see the other DT's. They have rocked this challenging challenge. There links are on the right hand side of my blog! Keep smiling and see you soon.
