Freshly Made Sketches 190

Wednesday, June 10, 2015

Yay, it's Wednesday!  Which, of course, around here means a new sketch from Freshly Made Sketches!  This week Amy is our hostess and her sketch gave me some room to show off some fun images.



The oval in the sketch turned out to be this dotted image on my card and since I couldn't let that image go un-adorned I added a butterfly layered with some vellum.  The vertical layer on the side was made with a stencil and some translucent embossing paste (love that look)!  The colors for my card come from the latest challenge at Sunday Stamps and the challenge this week at Addicted to CAS is butterflies!


The Freshly Made Sketches design team has made some beautiful cards to inspire you this week so hop on over there to check them out.  I hope you can join us in the gallery!

Now why didn't I think to use a shape other than an oval! Doh! This is a fab interpretation of the sketch. Love that image from So 80's - it's the reason I bought the set!
