MTME & Just Us Girls {Sketch} Challenge

Hi friends!  This is going to be a really quick post because I'm very late getting out the door to the vet.  Blogger was possessed or something last night and I spent the morning fixing the JUGS post and whipping up this one.  So, today I'm hosting a sketch challenge, based on a cute card by Lauren, over at JUGS
For my card I used some old school MTME paper, School Plaid and Basic Blooms.  I love the colors in these...kind of a Dusty Durango.  It's truly Warm Apple Cider from Couture Cardstock, but DD matches beautifully :]  I added the Friend sentiment from one of Lauren's newest stamp sets, Keep Strong.  I love the inspirational phrases in this set.  Perfect for that special someone who needs a lift.  The rest of my card is pretty basic.  I used the Simple Seedling card for my tag (the vellum panel) and added a layered MS butterfly.  I stamped a Fanciful Flourish on the vellum in VersaMark ink and pierced the dotted lines.  The flower is a prima and the ribbon is MS. 
So, whaddya say? Want to play along?! Just post a direct link to your project over at JUGS so that we can check it out. You'll be in the running for Chic of the Week if you post it before 9pm on Thursday next week! Good luck!!

In the meantime, check out the samples our fab team whipped up along with our very talented guest designer this month, Ms. Alyssa Scritchfield!

I have really enjoyed all your creations for MTME this month. But I have to say my favorite is the "bird lantern". As a lantern or a cage it is gorgeous.

I almost never leave remarks, however i did a few searching and wound
up here "MTME & Just Us Girls Sketch Challenge".
And I do have 2 questions for you if you usually do not mind.
Is it simply me or does it look as if like a few of the remarks appear
as if they are coming from brain dead visitors? :-P And, if you are writing at
additional sites, I would like to follow everything new you have
to post. Could you make a list of every one of your community pages like your Facebook
page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?
