A Special Purpose

Happy Sunday and thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. Well, another update on my Christmas un-decorating. I have everything taken down in my downstairs and packed away. I have a few things upstairs that need taken down and packed and then I am all finished for another year. Whoo-Hoo!!

We had some very spring-like temps this weekend her in Pittsburgh. It was 65° here today. The tulips will be getting confused if this continues. I even had my windows open and that is so unusual for January. No complaints here though.
Now onto my card for today. This one I made for the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamp challenge on Splitcoaststampers.
Ceal's was our hostess for this 4th challenge and she provided us with a sketch to use. She also wanted us to use long or large text.

I had this long text to use from the SNSS set - "one of a kind".

My card colors are pool party and soft suede. I used older Stampin-Up designer paper from the "autumn spice" collection.

Stamped my sentiment in soft suede, punched some butterflies from the designer paper and my card was done.

I also used Spellbinder A-2 matting basics dies collection to cut my layers. These dies makes it so easy to get an accurate cut without measuring. Well that's it for me today so until next time..........God bless.

Some other challenges:
1.  613 Avenue Create has an anythinggoes challenge.
2.  The Squirrel and the Fox has an anything goes challenge.
3.  Word-Play Saturday challenge has an anything goes challenge.
