Today's SCS Sketch Challenge 134 was a TENT TOPPER Card. The guidelines are as follows: Cut the CS 4.25" x 8.5" ... Fold to make a 4.25" square ... Use any shape and size you wish for the topper ... Construct your card (topper to 4.25 square base) so it's 4.25" x 5.5".

This is what I came up with. It's difficult to see in the photo, but there is paper piercing along the width of the card above and below the sentiment on the Purely Pomegranate CS, and on the Bashful Blue Circle. The butterfly image is stamped in Purely Pomegranate, then stamped again on another piece of Whisper White ... cut out, and mounted with stampin' dimensionals near the center of the butterly for a three-dimensional appearance.

Stamps: Garden Whimsy
Paper: Purely Pomegranate, So Saffron, Certainly Celery, Bashful Blue, and Whisper White CS, and Cutie Pie DP
Ink: Purely Pomegranate
Embellishments: One Bashful Blue Brad, Three Certainly Celery Brads
Tools: Paper Piercing Tool, Mat & Template, 1/16" Handheld Punch, Circle Cutter, 1" Circle Punch
Note: The flower left of the sentiment is punched out from the Cute Pie DP with the 1" Circle Punch
