Also, if you don't already like YNS on Facebook, you should definitely head over there and check it out because there are more chances to win over there as well!

Now, onto my projects for today!
First up, I created this gorgeous card using the fabulous stamp set called "Butterfly Love". The little butterfly is so sweet and whimsical and I think the sentiment that comes in the set is perfect! To create my card, I used the Mojo Monday sketch challenge and pulled some old Cosmo Cricket papers out. I paper pieced the butterfly's wings and embellished the card with some ribbon and brads! I love the end result!

For my second card, I used the ADORABLE new stamp set called "Spiffy Cool". When I saw this little dude, I couldn't get over how seriously cute he was! And let me tell you, he was tons of fun to color too! To add a little extra detail on him, I used some glossy accents to fill in his fun spectacles! It just adds so much to the card!


Here's a closer look at the image itself.
