I've never been more anxious for a Sunday to come than this past week. Last Sunday, I announced my acceptance into the Sentimental Sundays Design Team. Confused? Yes, I've been lucky enough to be selected to be part of another wonderful Design Team - a Sentimental Sunday Design Team - and BLOGGER ate the post where I announced it, as well as a few others. Anyways, since then I've been so excited and "patiently" waiting for June 5th. So without further ado, I give to you my very FIRST Sentimental Sundays DT project!

This week's challenge at Sentimental Sundays is all about being INSPIRED BY A SONG!
Create a project inspired by your playlist or favorite song, simply take inspiration from a SONG!
Once I heard this week's challenge, I immediately remembered my "Just the Way You Are" layout made in the Fall 2010, which was also inspired by a song. Actually, its the SAME song - 'Just the Way You Are' by Bruno Mars.
I love how the song is dedicated to a woman telling her she is PERFECT just the way she is. That there is no need for any changes, that she is loved just how she is.
Today's card is based of this week's MFT WSC Getting Sketchy Challenge #22. Since I can't get enough of my Cricut Expression, I used the Plantin SchoolBook cartridge to cut out a 2.937" circle to give an extra layer between the sentiment and scalloped mat.
The color combination was inspired by the ColourQ Challenge #87.
I simply replaced SU!'s Soft Suede for Bazzill's QuickSand Cardstock.
The butterfly is from a locally owned party supply store, where they make several different favors for parties and weddings. I love stopping by to see what new ribbons, flowers, or butterflies they have in stock.
Keeping with my "Just the Way You Are" INSPIRED SONG card, I used a digital sentiment from the Gratitude Sentiments by Raindrop Echo Designs by Ann Vento. Ann has lovely sentiments in both Digital and Rubber, to see more of her visit her store at Whimsy Stamps.
And lastly, but not least the inside of the card. I used the same sketch to decorate the inside of the card.
