OCCC Parisian Friendship SUO

We'd like to introduce and welcome Jessica Knutsen as our guest designer for this week. Jessica is also the owner of *There She Goes* and she generously is giving away one of her newest released stamp set *Tweeterpated* for this challenge!!!

In order to win this set, please have your card uploaded to Mr. Linky on Our Creative Corner by 12 pm central time on Friday, April 17th. If you upload to Splitcoast, please include OCCC in the keywords. The winner will be announced next Saturday, April 18th.Silke, our April hostess, is continuing to inspire and challenge us at Our Creative Corner, and this sketch is her latest stroke of brilliance.

I used Simple Friendship for this card and used one of my new favourite Stampin' Up! paper packs, Parisian Breeze. I distressed and grunged this card all over the place. I think it needs a little glitz ;) but that may just be me!I love this butterfly image. I tried embossing it with irridescent ice, but all the wonderful flourish and script detail vanished. It is such a bummer that I discovered with this butterfly that my clear detail ep is contaminated with white emboss powder... grrrrrrr... Overall, this really is a simple card, but those antennae are a real buggaboo to cut out!

Make sure you stop by Our Creative Corner to see what amazing things the other design team members have done with this sketch, and then mosey on over to their blogs for detailed information! We invite you to join us with this challenge and be entered in the draw for this adorable stamp set by There She Goes!
