Freshly Made Sketches 233

Wednesday, April 20, 2016

Somehow it is Wednesday already which means that my vacation is half over.  Boo.  But on the bright side it also means there is a new challenge starting at Freshly Made Sketches!  This week our hostess is Amy, our resident fearless color mixologist.



It will come as no shock to find a butterfly on my card.  But in my defense the challenge this week at the Paper Players was to make a clean and simple card with a butterfly.  That's right up my alley so I had to play along!  I also used the colors from Cupcake Inspirations.


I got some new stamps the other day and the scribble image fit nicely into this sketch (that's my circle in case you couldn't tell), a bit of long-unused washi for the horizontal layer, and a butterfly in place of the rectangle.  Easy peasy!

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check out the cards that my amazing Freshly Made Sketches teamies have made.  I hope you can join us in the gallery!

Supplies
Stamps:  Happy Art, Blossom (Precious Remembrance)
Paper:  White (Spectrum Noir); Pretty in Pink, Vellum (SU)
Ink:  Pretty in Pink (SU); Onyx Black (Versafine)
Accessories:  Cheviot Butterfly die, Delaney Butterfly die (Poppystamps); Lucky Blend sequins (Avery Elle); Basic Pearls (SU); washi tape

Another beauty! And in some of my most favorite colors, too! Thought of you yesterday as I was digging through my blue patterned paper...it just so happens I still have some of our favorite Parisian Breeze paper! The washi here is chock full of Springtime loveliness, and your delicate butterfly is gorgeous. Yep. I can see your sweet little scribble too! GREAT card. Bev
