Today Create With Connie and Mary has brought a square sketch challenge for you! I have a soft spot for square cards so I was in love with this from the get-go.
Since my stash of DSP is mysteriously growing again (she said with a wink), I thought I'd use some of my new Comfort Cafe and let the colors from that be my guide for this card. The gorgeous herringbone pattern paper is Midnight Muse and I added some layers of Summer Starfruit, Cajun Craze, and Pool Party in the opposing direction. Then I started waffling about what image to use for the floral focal point. I couldn't decide on what flower would look best here, so I substituted a butterfly!
The larger butterfly is cut from the Beautiful Butterflies Sizzix die from one of the Comfort Cafe patterns and the smaller one is stamped on Very Vanilla from Papillon Potpourri (which is fast becoming my new favorite butterfly stamp). I added a row of Basic Pearls down the center of the butterfly because pretty much everything deserves a row of pearls, don't you think?
I've purposely left off a sentiment on this card because it will be so easy to add one for a future occasion. There's plenty of space for one and I love the versatility of having a card I can use for just about anything when I need one!
