Kinda Eclectic Stampin' Up! CCMC325

I am happy to share with you, another great sketch from Create with Connie and Mary.
It's a square sketch but feel free to make it a rectangle. Have fun with it! I sure did!
My card base is Crumb Cake that I ran through the Big Shot with the Stylish Stripes embossing folder. Then I added the circle, tag, and butterflies. The leaf is stamped first with Pumpkin Pie ink. Then I used a Dark Pumpkin Pie Blendabilities and added some darker color to the base of each leaf. I also took a Daffodil Delight Blendabilities and added some yellow color. Yes, this totally works because some of the Classic ink pads can be used with the alcohol based Blendabilities markers! Pumpkin Pie is one of the ink pads. I always love when a product can be use in many ways. 

The tag is adhered with dimensionals and the butterflies are added with Mini Glue Dots. The pearls on the butterflies were colored with a Blendabilites marker.

Stamps: Kinda Eclectic
Card Stock: Very Vanilla, Pumpkin Pie, Crumb Cake
