My first "365" challenge; Penny's challenge

Not too long ago, I discovered the 365 cards challenge . I have taken a peek a few times, but today was the first day I jumped in, with their ad inspired card. I like the idea of a different challenge every day! Most products are Close To My Heart except the sentiment on the second card, the pearls, and the flower center. At Sarah's suggestion, I'm also including this in Penny's Challenge which was to use pearls.
I received another FUN package from Samantha today and my daughters and I have been enjoying all of the CTMH products she gifted us with (as she has become a Stampin Up demonstrator.) I'm sure she'll have lots of great stuff on her blog soon, so be sure to check it out.
Thanks for taking a peek.
Marie with a :-)

Two beautiful cards--those pearls make the butterfly pop & I love the lacey punch. Whoops A Daisy has always been one of my favorite papers & I just got that Verve stamp!
